A - Large bubbles. Big foamy aal style head. Some continued carbonation. No lacing. Color very pale and clear.

S- corn. Aluminum. Just a hint of wet dog.

T - very generic plain adjunct lager.

M - bit of fizzy harshness. I imagine the little scrub brush bubble cartoons from that popular toilet cleaner commercial running around my mouth.

D - this beer needs to be paired with spicy food and served ice cold to mask the tastes. If I had to choose between drinking this and getting disintary from Nicaraguan tap water I'd still choose this beer but I'd hesitate.

I have had Tona on several occasions inside and outside of the United States, with Costa Rica being the country I consumed it in the most (it is widely sold in Costa Rica or it was in 2010). It pours relatively pale, is watery, and has little noticeable aroma. In my opinion it does have kind of a bight going down, even though it is only 4.6% ABV, and it has a grainy taste. it is great for sunny and hot when exploring the beach or country.

When in Nicaragua...probably the best cheap beer available, better than Victoria.

Very light and average tasting, but that's the point, on a hot day on the beach in San Juan Del Sur, this beer is the perfect choice!

The guy below me knows whats up though!

12oz bottle from Tipsy's Liquor World in Denver. Strong Simpsons' associations are stirring in me there.

This beer pours a clear, very pale, diluted golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, but mostly fizzy dirty white head, which leaves damned near nothing in the way of persistent lace as it quickly falls away.

It smells of a gritty, grainy corn and pale malt sweetness, musty, overripe drupe fruit, mild acetone, and leafy, weedy hops. The taste is dusty pale malt, dried corn husks, echoes of apple and pear skins that once were, and earthy, weedy hops. Simple, that's for sure.

The carbonation is quite frothy in its one trick fizzy pony show, the body medium-light in weight, and a mite bit clammy in its sticky smoothness. It finishes mostly dry, the graininess of the mixed malts and plain-ass hops gettin' 'er done, but without much in the way of overt crispness.

An average offering, for this well-below average style. At least the off-flavours are kept to a minimum, all of which just results in a stark, unadorned canvass of grainy water. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, with these national lagers, I suppose.
