Also sold as Cubanero Fuerte.
Bucanero brings the mystery and passion of Cuba in a golden beer, with a vigourous and robust flavour. Our ancient and secret production process combines the finest selection of hops, water and malt.

Aah, Cuba. Famous for massive cigars and massive beers. Well, the cigar bit is true anyway. This poured with a vigorous fizzy head fueled by large bubbles from the clear golden liquid,but disappearing soon after - typical crappy pale lager. This is up there with the worst of them in fact: a corny adjunct aroma, and a metallic bitterness and sugary sweet flavour. Unfortunately the flavour lingers a little while on the palate, which in many beers is appreciated but in this it’s unfortunate. I never thought I’d say it, but I think it’s worse than VB...

A stronger tasting, brown amber coloured beer. A sugary malt flavour and aroma. Although it was a nice change from the Cristals you’d drink all day in the sun, it is hardly worth tracking down outside of Cuba.

Bottle. Small qucily disappearing white head. Clear reddish body. Weak malt aroma. Too sweet, thought that it was brewed with corn.

OK, the first time I got this beer I drank it directly from the can, which made it taste even more like metal and ONLY alcohol, and the next one it was drunk by me from a nice stem glass, and then it got surprisingly better. Anyway it is not recommendable in any way, but interesting trying it.

Can. Sampled at a resort in Varadero, Cuba. Medium gold in color with lots of carbonation. Unmistakable malty aroma of unfermented wort which no homebrewer could mistake, along with a touch of herbal hops. Somewhat more robust than the other Cuban lagers that I sampled, but still a little on the thin and astringent side. Slight mineral flavor, along with a bit of malt and more German noble hops. Sort of like a poorly made Warsteiner.

Where else do you find a Cuban beer but in a supermarket in Kuala Lumpur? I will resist from making a joke about how many buckaneros it cost me but the picture of the pirate shows that he has a fine Ringgit in his ear (nyuk nyuk). Sure is a pale lager with all the hallmarks of its style. Strangely the lack of hop and malt flavour is so expected that it is a reasonable beer in comparison to the other beers up here apart from the meaty stouts of course. Still not a great beer of course but better consumed in an outdoor cafe than my air conditioned room.

Pale yellow beer with a white head. Malty aroma with notes of bread and some sweetness. Malty, grainy flavor with a clear corn sweetness.
