3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
350ml bottle served very cold. Not much aroma maybe a little hop note. Appearance is golden with a reducing head but there is good lacing on the glass. Taste is crisp and refreshing - this reminds me of a corona but with more taste, the bitterness is noticeable as you swallow. Nothing special but a bit better than your usual lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
35 cl green glass bottle. Quite unusual size. And my 50th beer country! The beer is golden-pale in the glass, white head. The beer starts watery, not too bad. A bit of malt and quite bitter in the beginning. The mainpart is medium bodied, not too flat, slightly malty and only slightly sweet. The aftertaste is medium, watery, a bit grainy and slightly bitter.
--> nice lager for a day at the beach. A bit watery, but no negative aroma noticeable. ok

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A suitable beer for a beach day in Cuba. I like the sweet flavor this beer has, not too bitter and not too alcoholic, most of all, sweet. Also, it has a light body with average foam, light color, very pale. I tasted this beer only once so I can’t remember it’s aroma exactly, well, let’s go with sweet/rice. Most of all, I liked its refreshing taste.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
330ml can brought back from Cuba. Clear, pale, fizzy beer. Decent white head, some lacing. Aromas are corn, skunk, soap, metallic notes and weeds. There isn’t much taste to talk of here, but there’s some bitterness to it. The aftertaste disappears within seconds. The mouthfeel is watery, thin and fizzy.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 350 ml at home, poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.9% New country tick.
Bright golden yellow colour on the body, crystal clear as it should be, with good activity in it. On top a white head is sitting, one finger tall, soapy. Good retention, it leaves light lacing behind.
Aroma od soap, grass, adjunct malts, not very appealing but it manages to smell refreshing.
Quite sweet taste but other than some malts, it doesn’t taste of much. Maybe some light hay.
Very hin body even for a lager, average carbonation.
Overall a pretty boring pale lager, maybe if the weather was a bit warmer it would score higher but for now, it doesn’t make it for me.

Can 0,33L. Rating it 5 days after date expired. Clear, golden colour with average big, frothy white head. Aroma of cookies, grassy hopps and paper. Taste starts light sweet and later turns into moderate bitter. Light bodied, watery beer with lively carbonation. Nothing special about this one, except the exotic country it comes from...
