2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

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

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)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
