You like Sol but not Corona? It's pretty much the same crap just in a prettier bottle...have you taken the Sol challenge? :-b


Sol's bottle wasn't prettier. :-? I had to drink something cheap in Mexico. It didn't smell like a skunk, tasted close to Premium Grain Belt. ;-)

I know I can't take the Sol challenge unless I go to Mexico, I've never seen that stuff in the States.

I haven't really looked for it here in Cali but it was just about everywhere in Oregon from what I remember. :-?

Yeah Sol ain't that bad...it ain't that good either though. :-b

Met - you are correct. It ain't that good.

Interesting to see the yes vote for after trying has changed. :-)

I've seen Sol for sale in Champaign, IL. It might be found in the whole bunch of Mexican grocery stores near and around Chicago too.

I've heard that beer in Mexico might not always be the brand you ordered. Depending on how cheap/sleazy the place you order from is, supposedly lots of places brew their own stuff and reuse bottles, or they pour some cheap stuff into used bottles to take advantage of stupid tourists.

Maybe you just drank something that was in a Sol bottle, Raff. 8-o :-b

Maybe, I really don't know. Only know it didn't have that Skunk smell. Didn't need a lime either. Low grade Premium Grain Belt. :-°

Hey, wait. Yep, I'm dumb.

Those bottles of Sol in Mexico definitely were not new and they were not pretty.

I was at a 4 star resort so hopefully I got some beer made from water that did not come from the lagoon. :-o

I'm going to have to google Sol to see what a real bottle looks like.

I drank out of something like this.






Didn't see these.

Dang it, there is 1 vote for liking it after the test again. :~(






I was cheap back then so I drank quite a few from the can also.

i just got back from a business trip to Mexico, i dont think i saw a Corona anywhere. it's like the Budwieser of Mexican Beers, the worst of it's kind but for some reason really popular (I think Dos Equis is the Miller Lite)

Tecate is probably my favorite Mexican beer (this is usually what i get when i have a beer at a Mexican restaraunt). I also had the following down there (and probably at some point before)
Sol
Modelo Especial
Negra Modelo
Bohemia
Pacifico
Victoria (pretty sure they dont export this one)

Overall, i hardly ever drink Mexican beer, although i dont necessarily NOT like it, but Corona is pretty much teh suck

It's the clear bottle which allows way too much light to get in. Similar to Becks and Heineken, but even more so, Corona is subject to skunking very easily. I would bet if you got a corona right off the factory line it would be a lot better than what you can get here. But the point is, it really isn't worth drinking. That said, I will definitely drink it because I'll drink anything. I'd rather drink it with a lime than without, mostly because it tastes better.

On a side note, I made a serious commitment last week entering my senior year in college: I will only buy ICE beer. My reasoning is twofold:
1) I will save money by only buying cheap beer, and I will need to drink less because of the high alcohol content of natty ice, beast ice, etc.
2) When we need to go on a beer run, people won't want me to go since they know I'll buy Ice. Hence, more savings

That's not to say I won't only drink ice, just only buy it. ICE in my veins!!! Hopefully you wont find me in your local penitentiary mumbling "ice was a bad choice"
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

I did that for a short while in college too. 30 can cases of Icehouse for $8. :-b
