prawlie (1303) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Can in a bar in Havana on a very hot day. Looks like fizzy apple juice. Its a bit like Cuban Coors, incredibly bland yet somewhat refreshing in 35°C heat. Have Bucanero instead.

SVD (998) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
Can at home, missed the part its almost a year past its best before date... but well lets give it a go.... golden beer, small head, aroma is not very much, hint of grain, taste is the same, as much a pale lager as it can get

MiP (14519) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2015
Can, 4.5%. Weak grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Small unstable frothy white head. The flavour is mildly grainy and bready. Decent malt note. Low bitterness, and not unpleasant. Could do a lot worse on a summer’s day.

Bamsen78 (4521) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2015
Can. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with notes of hops and touches of citrus. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and yeast and touches of metal. Bitterish aftertaste with estery notes. Drinkable in hot temperatures but not inspiring as such.

Grumbo (912) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Can located in a store in Holguin, Cuba. Pours a golden yellow colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of corn, grass and malt. Rather thin, though crisp and as Cuban lagers go, of those I’ve tried, this is second to Cristal.

ogivlado (6473) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 12, 2014
Canned 355ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko, thanks. Yellow/golden coloured, small airy white head, corn in the nose. Weak sweetish malty, corn and slight herbal with short finish. Watery of course. Typical Carib lager.

Marko (4348) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 6, 2014
Enormous thanks to Krešo for bringing this from Cuba!
Poured a golden body with a thick whtie head. Better than expected really. Stinky corn aroma, sweetish and eggy. Mild sweetish eggy taste, pricky carbonation. Light... humm, guess alcohol. Meh. You can do worse, but not much worse.

StoutHead (888) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2014
Can. Pours golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt and corn. Taste is of malt, hops, grain and flowers. Thin, watery and very average. Very crisp. Good in the Caribbean‎ and a good alternative to Cristal, but nothing too special.

Erzengel (5856) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
355 ml can. Pale-golden in the glass, the beer starts very watery. A few malty hints are in the mainpart tastable, a few mouldy hops in the end. The aftertaste is very watery-refreshing, nearly no beer aroma, slightly grainy.
Ideal for a refreshing day in the caribbean, but here in Germany in the evening only good as a session beer. --> 7/12/6/6
