Evanescent hops in a very aqueous solution...Even at this point in the Ratebeer Christmas Party, I'm not sure if I'm drinking the water that I used to wash my glass from the previous beer...In this case, Fuerte rhymes with Muerte, doesn't it?...

Golden color, white head. Light malt aroma, bit of citrus. Light malt flavor, not much else going on. Light body. Inoffensive, but still a typical Caribbean lager. Thanks joey_capps.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2006 Full gold colour. Aroma mixes malts, grains and alcohol. Flavour does much the same. The body is big for style and there is a slight hint of hop spiciness to balance off a slight alcoholic firmness in the finish. More flavour and better balance than most macro lagers I’ve had, which allowed it to stand up to nearly 100 cans in my two weeks in Cuba. Near flawless construction - folks who think Budweiser is well made could learn from tasting around the world.

Golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of slight fruits (peaches and pears) with some slight malt. Light-bodied; Malty flavour with almost nothing else-fairly watery. Overall, not really worth trying, but as an American-a nice treat as we cannot regularly drink Cuban beers! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003. I owe a large thanks to Joey_capps for bringing this twelve ounce bottle for us to try!

Clear yellow, no head. Sweet malt, and corn aroma. About what you would expect from a cuban lager.
