Heavier than what I usually like but not a bad beer. Tasted both on tap and can. Not much difference. Not the kind of beer you want to drink all day on the beach. I would rather a cooler of Cristral’s for that.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Golden, OK head, aroma malty and lightly hoppy, just like the flavour, that has light notes of caramel and very little bitterness. Booooring. 1692

One of the joys of beer hunting is the unexpected find. I’m trudging along a dusty street in a village on a Malaysian island. It’s 40C and so humid you could squeeze a pint of sweat out of your shirt. We’ve walked miles after our dodgy taxi driver abandoned us in the "centre of town" - which turned out to be three miles away. I’m knackered, the wife’s pissed off and knackered. And I’m sick of drinking nothing but Tiger beer for the last five days. So when the wife pointed out a grim-looking liquor store, I went in for the air conditioning more than the prospect of decent beer. And there among the familiar rows of Tiger, Carlsberg and Guinness was this Cuban lager. I was pathetically excited. I knew in my heart of hearts it would be rubbish - but it was new. Two weeks later, here I am drinking it back in Australia - and yes, it’s pretty ordinary. It’s a muddy gold colour and raises a stingy head. The honeyed aroma is more inviting, with some mint, brown sugar and a herbal note. Medium gravity and sticky with sugars. It’s a sweet lager with an unusual minty mouthwash overtone and a pinch of oregano. Low bitterness and no hint of the 5.4% abv. Reminds me of those Christmas candy canes. A very odd lager but by no means awful. And hey, at least it’s not Tiger. (350ml bottle from a Langkawi bottle shop)

The beer on tap foamed more in my travel mug than the Cristal. More of a gold than yellow in colour. A harsh edge to the flavour in the finish.

Light malty aroma. With a large frothy white head. Good lasing and mostly diminishing longevity. Yellow body hue. Moderate bitter initial flavor, medium palate.
