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.

GT2 (9273) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 28, 2009
330 mL. Had this in Havana a few times. Pours a modest gold with not much of a head. No lacing. Aromas of grass, honey, cereal grain, and some artificially added alcohol. Taste very sweet with lots of corn and cereal finishing with cardboard and metallic notes.

330 ml. bottle, labeled "Cubanero Fuerte". Average deep golden colour, small head that doesn’t hold and no lacing. Boring smell of herbs, with some sweetness from malts and chemical soap. Watery flavor, taste of hops and herbs. Just like a typical boring mass market beer that looks like they were all the same. I wonder what makes them label this beer as "strong".

Hansen (7476) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2008
Golden colour and clear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is lightly hoppy and a bit odd, unpleasent. Sweet flavor. A bit fatty texture.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color with a froathy medium head. The aroma is sweet grass and corn. Taste is clean grains and water. Not horrible as you would think.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2008
Can brought back from my Mother on a recent trip to Cuba. This Cuban gem pours a pale yellow and is topped with a frothy, but short lived white foam. Nose of corn and sugars, some grass and a bit of honey. Tastes initially sweet of malts and some adjunct, almost syrupy, leading to a bit of grassy hops and melon frutiness. Finishes a bit heavy, but overall better than expected.
