Tona Cerveza - Nicaraguan Lager

Frequently, I try to match my beer selection with my dinner choice, and tonight was Mexican. Other than a Corona Light, I had no Mexican beers, so I decided that this Nicaraguan Lager was the closest thing. It's called Tona Cerveza and I got it in a "Beers of the World" assortment at World Market. This is a very good imitation of a Mexican beer, and it went fine with my fajitas. As with most beers of this type, it was nothing exciting. It's your basic light lager. It had little hop flavor, and almost no head. The color was a nice golden yellow. No better, no worse than the typical Mexican lager.

Hey guy that is not an imitation of anything. It is a Nicaraguan beer, and I'm sure a anything would have gone well with your fajitas. Try victoria next time if you didn't like that one. Maybe thats a little more "exciting".

After re-reading the post, I can see that my wording was unfair in calling Tona an imitation of a Mexican beer. Thanks for calling me on it. I still feel they're very similar. Thanks for the recommendation of Victoria. If I find it, I will give it a try. Thanks for your comment!
