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.

Clear pale golden, small frothy white head, recedes quickly, almost no lacing; aroma grain, hay, bit soapy, vegetables; taste medium sweet, light bitter, cardboard; light to medium body, oily to watery texture, average carbonation, aftertaste light bittersweet; quite thin beer in every department.

Golden pale in color, and not much of a nose. Head dies quickly and taste is not much better. Guess it will be a good thirst quencher on a hot day. On all other days it is just a another bad lager

24/XII/14 - 33cl can @ home - BB: 9/I/15 (2014-1532) Thanks to Erwin and Johan for the can!

Clear pale yellow beer, creamy white head, unstable, falls down immediately, non adhesive. Aroma: bit malty, grains, hay, cow fodder. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, little bitter, grains, bit malty, some grassy hops. Aftertaste: little bitter, refreshing, bit malty, not too bad, nice finish. Was expecting way worse.

Borresteijn (5186) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
35cl bottle at La Cubanita Haarlem, as Palma Cristal. Straight from the bottle. Aroma is grainy, malty, light grassy. Flavour is malty, light grainy, light fizzy, light bitter finish. Light bodied. Standard macro lager, but nothing off here. OK for what it is.

BreWedge (358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
355 ml can @ La Loma de la Cruz restaurant in Holguin, Cuba. Pours a clear gold with a large, white, short-lived head. Standard lager aromas, principally light grain. Taste is fairly watery with a little bit of malt, grain presence. Light body, medium carbonation, little to no finish. Better than Mayabe but still a pretty weak beer.
