Here one has to appreciate the context...all Cuban beers are well..lousy, but this is the best, and much better than Cristal. My beer of choice (and in Cuba there is very limited choice) when I am back home in Cuba. Context is my balcony facing the Malecon after walking the streets of Havana... and there Bucanero Fuerte, si es fuerte, it comes on strong, clean, straight to the point. I read these reviews...Lemons??? Seriously cuban beers with Lemons???? Just to let you know, if you find yourself in Cuba this is the beer to ask for, and you will be disappointed, but then comes all the rest, so I will save you some time and even bigger disappointements.

ElManana (334) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2014
355ml can, thanks tderoeck! Pours clear golden, small head. Nose is typical lager, dominating yeast, some malt, there’s also some tropical fruit there. Taste is quite tropical indeed, combined with the normal lager taste. Better than most Belgian factorylagers.

Lore (1177) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2014
Clear golden colour , not too much white head; aroma of grains, hay, floral hops and maybe some minimal tropical fruit, taste is dominated by malty sweetness with some floral hoppy notes; no side-taste, correct lager

beer_est_deus (730) - örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2014
Vatten klar, ljust gul, vitt skum. Låg 2:a. Doft: Malt, lager, äpplen, gräs, jäst, lätt av jord, billig frukt sallad. Smak: Lager, äpplen, malt, jäst, deg. Påminner om ölen farmor använde till sjömansbiff.

Kita (1164) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, 0.35l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of hay, citrus and cereals. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, follows by grassy and grainy acidity with spicy mouthfeel and moderate unpleasant bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Too sweet and alcoholic...

TychoJames (133) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2014
Burk köpt och drucken på Kuba. Gyllengul färg med ljust skum. Brödig doft. Smaken ganska intetsägande. Viss maltighet, viss beska. Enligt mig den minst intetsägande ölen av de jag testade i landet

Can from Cuba. Not bad but classic lager with small head. Short palate, fresh taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vipinvelp (2319) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
Pale yellow with no foam to speak off. Light barley aroma, regular lager taste, Nothing more to say here. But it’s a Cuban beer, yes. (Parijs 201411)

lusikka (6434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2014
350 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with large bubbles. Aroma is rather sweet with some mild fruitiness and citrus. Flavour of grains, mild bitterness, citrus, some bread and paper. Light bodied and very soft mouthfeel. Actually not that bad.

SamTheBarrel (486) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2014
350ml brown bottle poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is clear golden with a medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma of grass, grains and straw. Flavours of cereal, processed sugar and a hint of herbs and alcohol. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Bucanero Fuerte is a plain Pale Lager, overly sweet and alcohol is somewhat noticeable in the flavour.
