Brewsday Tuesday: Sol
This is the third of four varieties of beer included in the Cinco de Mayo mix pack from Winn Dixie. Clear bottle beer almost always ensures a nice skunky taste. Let’s see if this sun shines.
Brewed by: Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V.
Location: Monterrey, Mexico
Style/ABV: American Adjunct Lager / 4.5%
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow fizzy yellow with a half finger white head. The head quickly disappears and there is no lacing.
Smell: Light corn aromas. That is it.
Taste: Sweet corn with a hint of hop bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and light with some crispness.
Overall: I drank this beer with and without a lime. If consumed with a lime on a hot North Florida day this is very drinkable brew. It would also make a good beach beer. Pretty similar to Corona, but I’d give the nod to Sol based soley on the old school label.
Final Grade: D (without lime) / C+ (with lime somewhere hot and tropical)
