Cuba has two beers on the dollar market and for export, Cristal and Bucanero. Cristal is big with the tourists, but you give a Cuban a choice and they will go with Burcanero. Cristal is a typical lager, passable, given the alternatives in Cuba. Light, characterless, sip it cold, forcus not on "palate" but the waves,sand, and what you are waiting for to walk down the beach. They sell Heinken and Corona in Cuba now. GIven these alternatives...go native.

Tasted at bottle on 04/06/2014. Colour is golden with some bubbles. There’s almost nothing to the smell, just a slight grainy/malty aroma. Very artificial taste, aftertaste and aroma. Next one please!
