I drank several of these ice cold from the cooler while wasting an afternoon in idle conversation. This was an okay to drink a lot of but don't write home about it (oops). This tastes better than American macrobrew that has a pale yellow beer much like this one. I could drink these with Corona and not really know the difference. I ate tacos and frijoles with this and worked out nicely. Not really good when warm, so crank em down.

This would appear to be a Corona clone but it tends closer to Bud Light. It holds a very sour mash flavor with a rice/corn mix and a tinny aftertaste. Most aspects of this beer are weak and it begs for a lime. Once a lime is added it does give a crisp clean thirst quenching feel which ultimately may be the brewers intent.

Four Seasons Liquors - Morris, IL
Picked this up for a mop, might as well finish the rest. A straw golden body is clear enough to read through. Lazy carbonation runs up the middle to the fizzy white, finger high head. The head crackles away quickly to nothing but a small, bubbly ring.
Skunky. I don't know if it's from the clear bottle or if they intentionally do the whole Heineken thing but it's certainly reminiscent. Smells a little like hard water, mineral heavy, without much behind it but indistinct, soggy grains. It's not bad or off putting, really, but it is in no way good or particularly appetizing.
The flavor runs along the same lines. Soggy grain, not very crisp, that have gotten skunked in one way or another. The finish is a little more vibrant and the grains clean up a bit but it's simply more of the same. Again, nothing good but a halfway refreshing beer on a day running around outdoors.
The best of Sol is the mouthfeel. Light bodied with a fairly quick moving carbonation. The finish is actually dry and clean which clears away the skunk, leaving no noticeable aftertaste.
Sol isn't all that bad. I'm sure I will have it again in the future as I have in the past. It does what it's brewed for and makes sense in certain situations. I'd reach for this before Corona any day.
