A Mes rate. Can at home thanks to PV.
Well, I say thanks, it wasn’t that good really. Loads of corn, sweet pukey malt and a little cardboard. Pretty awful in all honesty.

Uhauah l’ho comprata come "Cubanero Fuerte" (anagrammano il nome, che teneri..) alla COOP di Busalla stamattina, che c’era un’offerta fantastica di molte birre anche migliori, decisamente migliori; però ho voluto provare anche questa, diciamo "al posto del caffè", dopo pranzo... metà è finita nel cesso però credevo peggio, si tratta di una lager con una sua personalità dovuta all’alta percezione alcolica nel sapore nonostante la bassa gradazione. Per questo, credo, ’fuerte’; per il resto robaccia.

lithilorn (246) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - APR 26, 2009
Gold body and white head. Sweet corn a like syrup aroma. Sweet malty flavor with herbs and hops. Watery. Not very bad beer from the caraibe.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - APR 24, 2009
bottle at a random bar in the Kalk Bay are of the Western Cape, South Africa. Looked like any other pale lager. Aroma was dominated by sweet corn. The flavor was also very corney but had a surprising hop kick for a pale lager. Not sure the corn and hops went together that well but it was unique at the very least. Overall: weird, but interesting and pretty refreshing.

Bottle @ Café Værkstedet: Cubanero Fuerte.

Quite surprising for an american/caribian pale lager, and better than much mexican beers or Carib. The aroma is quite sweet, maybe even a bit chocolaty which I find amusing, not especially distinct nor vague. Appearance is as any pale lager, at least I could’t tell if there were a difference in the absent light at Værkstedet. Flavor is again quite sweet for a pale lager (apparently everything you drink in Cuba are sweet), with some hops and a good bite of alcohol - actually it is not special in any way, but it appeals to me.

Maybe what also has an effect is the rich and fat texture, much for than I had expected, but odd enough it only lasts 50 percent of the time before you sink; then it becomes quite watery. All in all an respective pale lager; I would prefer it over well-known brands as Heineken or Carlsberg.
