This one is listed on the wrong website!
I think www.ratewater.com is better. I can sense some sweetness and some grain. That is all. Flavour is....carbonated water, small small small bitter notes in finish. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2006
Small head, quickly vanishing. High carbonation. Lots of water, a little sugar and lots of water, It’s probably possible to prove the presence of malt and hops if you have a good lab, but with your tongue - no! Worse than Swedish 2% beers. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
This is a fairly typical lager from south of the border. Although the watery mouthfeel makes this really only consumable with spicy, authentic Mexican food. I found it does pair very well with carnitas. Grains play a huge role in the aroma and taste. You could do a lot worse with crappy American swill, so this does have a place and time for it. beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
(04.04.06) 330 mL brown bottle consumed that Jade Garden Restaurant, White Swan Hotel, Guangzhou, China. 4.5% ABV. Poured clear golden yellow with medium white head. Average carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Starts dry with light malt sweetness and honey flavor. Finished dry with light malt fade. Light to medium bodied. No discernable hop presence. A decent malty lager that goes well with dim sum but nothing particularly memorable. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Bottle. Better than Corona. Not that good, but I’d have to say that with a full meal at a mexican resturant, a nice cold Sol is something that compliments it quite well.

It is weird to give this beer such a high rating, call it nostalgia. This beer is best drank on the beach with a lime, in the middle of the summer during vacation. I think it is a better alternative to corona. I recommend for a vacation but not for home consumption

I think this is the same "Sol" i had while i was in Mazatlan? Pretty typical mexican lager that is easy drinking but needs a lime certainly. Actually is one of the more high end beers down there, as upposed to Tecate and Pacifico anyway.... NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2006
Very light yellow coloured brew. A little bit bitterness in the flavor. Reminds me of light whites. It’s flavor is too much nothing, but enjoyble when very hot. Like in Mexico :) Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 20, 2006
Grainy sweet pale lager, lots of cereal. smells worse than it tastes, drinkable, but only after a few better brews! DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2006
UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 Ooooh boy! How many gallons of this did we drink last week? If you take out the key ingredients-- the scorching Mexican sun and a pool full of best friends-- you are left with a watery pale lager with less hop character than even Corona. But with the other ingredients in place, you really don’t give a shit! "I got Sol but I’m not a soldier! I GOT SOL BUT I’M NOT A SOLDIER!!!" Wahoo!
