12 oz brown bottle with a twist cap.

Pours with a light golden color and a fizzy head that soon reduces to a minimal partial top coat.

Aroma: as expected for style - mild; mostly biscuits and spicy/herbal Euro hops.

Flavor: a bit better than expected given the aroma; on par for style - mild; biscuits and lightly spicy hops with a touch of corn. Thankfully, only the slightest hint of skunking.

Feel: carbonation is a touch lower than usual but no harm in this. Light body.

O: not bad as a refreshing light beer. Worked well with Mexican food.

Came across this at my local store so said why not? Who knew that non-descript AAL's were popular in Central America? I thought I was drinking a cross between a Miller High Life with a hint of Heineken.

Poured a typical pale straw color with the smell and taste dominated with adjuncts. The mouth feel is watery and there is no real finish.

Unless you are trying to drink beers from as many counties as possible don't bother with this one.

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.

San Jose/Punta Viejo, Costa Rica August, 2010
