I decided to give this beer another try after a previous sub-par tasting and I am very, very glad I did.

Somehow Toña has become one of the tastiest adjunct lagers I've ever tasted.

A nice balance of toasty malt and hops. Dry start and sweeter finish.

Of all the beers I try, there is always going to be times where you shoot craps. This is one. THis review is short, don't bother with this one. Next, please!

Look: It porus light golden with a head that quickly disappears.

Smell: It has grainy sweet aromas with some musty elements, and grass.

Taste: It is somewhat grainy sweet with grass, and a bit of musty to it.

Feel: It has a light body with high carbonation that leads to a carbonic bite.

Overall, this is a beer that doesn't have much complexity or flavor, but what is does have is okay.

Poured at 43°F from a 12oz bottle (bottled on 09Sep16) into a Pilsner glass. Consumed on 23Sep16.
SMELL: This legitimately does not have a smell to it.
3 out of 5
TASTE: An instant balance surprises me as mild flavors of biscuits and spicy hops first roll out on to the palate. Subtle earthy hop flavors and hints of peaches and floral hops quickly trail as the biscuit and spicy hop flavors dwindle to faint levels. The subtlety of the brew closes with flavors of bitter hops and hints of grass and car exhaust while all previous flavors now maintain.
2.75 out of 5
NOTE: I was expecting something dreadful, but instead, I received a simply bad beer. I would not recommend to any craft beer lover unless you just want to scratch a Nicaraguan beer of your list. I would, however, give this to my macro loving friends as this is a much better alternative to a Budweiser or Coors.

So, I don't think that I've ever had a beer from Nicaragua. The brew that I have has a different label, but it is clearly the same product. The appearance is a pale yellow, clear, effervescent, with a (frankly) better than expected head. The aroma is of adjuncts...corn, a bit of dms, but also (surprisingly) a hint of malt. The taste is light, slightly sweet, and bland. Light in body and watery finish. Honestly, it is better than I would have expected.

M- Light, clean, a bit crisp.

O- Nothing good about this. Light, tasteless, and chuggable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75

A: crystal clear; light gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded to a thin collar; very little lacing;

S: diacetyl; a little light struck; a hint of bread and pilsner malt;

T: a balance between bread, pilsner malt, and skunkiness; finish is mildly bitter;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: date on the bottle is 6/3/16, so it's probably reasonably fresh; only takes a few minutes in the wrong light to get light struck;

Pours clear, straw yellow, with moderate carbonation. Taste is straw, honey, and light cracker. Tasty and refreshing, slightly above average adjunct lager. Nothing fancy, but just what I needed tonight.

Better than your American average and this ain't no Corona. No long review, but an epitome of the style. Try it!
