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.

Aroma: very malty, bread, light caramel. Appearance: clear gold, medium frothy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: light bitters coming up, but sweets persist, medium carbonation. Overall: boring Lager, but very drinkable in the Cuban heat. Bottle from Wittich Weine, Switzerland.

MarkoNm (246) - SLOVENIA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a clear golden color. There are about two fingers of white froth head that immediately disappears. The aroma is mild but pleasant. Some basic malts and grains are picked up. The taste is light, not really watery. Starts sweet, continues with nicely balanced body, high carbonation, and finishes with a slight bittery feel. Refreshing and easy to drink. Decent.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle as Cubanero Fuerte at Supper. (my first one from Cuba). Golden with a minimal white head. Sweet with butter, malt and some light fruit. Drinkable but boring.

guzgorog (169) - FRANCE - MAR 30, 2014
Bière blonde dorée, voir légèrement ambrée, quasi pas de mousse mais forte effervescence. Très peu d’odeur, du malt sinon. Légère amertume, pas vraiment de goût, assez fade. Sans intérêt ...

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
355 mL. Orange-gold with no head. Smells like a Caribbean pale lager. It actually has a little bit of non-unpleasant flavour, which is a surprise. It’s not great, or really even good, but it’s not terrible, which may be the nicest thing I’ve ever said about a beer from that area.

kraddel (2437) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle Pours very clear blonde . Rather small white head Smell is very unintense. Let me just say it has no scent ? Taste is cheap malts, bit sweet ( malty sweetness ) Very common, and weak lager-ish taste . Not awfull, but certainly not too good neither

Flaska på Paladar de Cuba. Klassisk lagerlook, kanske lite mörkare. Doftar även klassisk lager men med en lite kryddig ton. Smaken är lite söt och påminner svagt om en belgare. Dör ut fort med en liten liten beska.
