2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cuba’s national standard lager, tasted as Cubanero Fuerte. Creamy, crackling, quite thick but quickly diminishing, snow white head leaving a fair amount of lacing, colour clear ’old gold’ with good fizz. Sweetish aroma, already a bit oxidized, bready malts, popcorn, minerals, iron, sourish touch and a chalky sweetishness reminding me a bit of aspartame; hops are nowhere to be seen. Sweetish, grainy onset with a hint of bready sweet malts, sourish grains again, clear corn presence, medium carbonation for this style; minerally and metallic body, hint of biscuit, with a mild, leafy and somewhat herbal hop bitterishness still showing up in the finish, drying a bit. Another bland pale lager indeed, but not as bad as expected. Still, it cannot convince me of associating Cuba with anything else than rhum and good cigars when it comes to the ’worldly’ pleasures.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s in Asagaya. Drank out of the bottle. Hint of pepper lodged between grain. Medium body. Crisp finish. Terribly boring...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
350ml bottle [Cubanero]. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Muggy, grainy aroma, wet strawy, some malt spiciness. Taste is monotonous, minimally sweet pale malty, slightly grainy and strawy. Not absolutely "fuerte", but definitely for a Pale Lager.

Lo primero que llama la atención sin duda es su atractiva etiqueta, con ese bucanero encabezando la botella. Cerveza rubia dorada de escasa espuma. El aroma es muy escaso, destacando en último caso la malta. Sabor equilibrado entre el amargor del lúpulo y el azúcar de la cerveza. Cierta personalidad al medio trago y un repunte final muy discreto.

350 ml. bottle. Thanks Gabriel. Pours a clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, grain, and a bit of grass. Better than many Pale Lagers.

When I took this beer into my hand I immediately thought that I would get a typical international lager taste. I was pleasantly surprised that this beer is more refined and tasty, and also slightly more heavy. A good caribbean beer.
