Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 83: Sol

Across the Atlantic from Spain to Mexico.

Sol

Pours a very pale, clear yellow. Medium head that fades fast, A moderate amount of fizz in the glass, but it's big bubbles.

First sip: Lots of grain, not much malt. Mild hops bitterness that stays the same from sip to swallow. Not much after-taste of anything. Lease a slight dryness. Mouth feel is thin with a carbonation tingle on the tongue. Tiny hint of citrus.

I dunno. These American adjunt lagers just don't do it for me.

This isn't a bad beer but it's boring. Sol is certainly better than Corona. It's drinkable and would be refreshing on a hot day, but I think the addition of lime would make it better. And any beer that needs fruit to improve it is one to avoid.*
