hawthorne00 (3315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2016
As Cubanero Fuerte. Clear gold with a white head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty with hints of floral and peppery hops. Thinner than suggested by the aroma and really a bit light on for well over 5%. Toasty turns out to be more bland and sugary. Modest bitter finish is very slightly spicy. Not much else to it, although it’s pretty clean. A bit of a let down after the decent aroma.

Labelled as Cubanero Fuerte purchased at Meny Denmark. Nah, this is just another high volume produced lager that suits only one purpose, to quench thirst. Watery and bland.
