COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also sold as Cubanero Fuerte.
La Bucanero Fuerte toma su nombre de las viejas leyendas de los piratas del Caribe. Considerando que Bucanero Fuerte es uno de los mayores tesoros escondidos de la cerveza cubana, le sirve esta asociación de ideas. Con el sabor fuerte de una cerveza con masmás cuerpo, la Bucanero Fuerte está elaborada con los ingredientes más frescos y naturales, la malta de calidad superior se mezcla con un toque de la más fina azúcar cubana. Su mayor contenido alcohólico, su color ámbar más profundo y su delicioso y refrescante sabor hacen de la Bucanero Fuerte una notable y 100% original cerveza cubana. Con los años, la Bucanero Fuerte se ha hecho favorita entre los cubanos como la cerveza para beber entre amigos, mientras se juega dominó o se mira un juego de béisbol, convirtiéndose en una cerveza clásica de todos los tiempos. Ingredientes: agua, cebada malteada, azúcar de caña, lúpulo.
Bucanero Fuerte gets its name from old legends of the pirates that roamed the Caribbean Sea. Considering that Bucanero Fuerte is one of the best hidden treasures of Cuban beer, this connection is fitting. Strong and full-flavored, Bucanero Fuerte is made from the most natural and freshest ingredients, with superior malt and is blended with just a touch of Cuba’s finest sugars. Having more alcohol, a deeper amber color, and a refreshing taste makes Bucanero Fuerte a remarkably 100% original Cuban beer. Over the years Bucanero Fuerte has become a favorite amongst Cubans as a beer to drink with friends while playing domino’s or watching a baseball game. It is quickly proving itself to be a timeless classic. Bucanero brings the mystery and passion of Cuba in a golden beer, with a vigourous and robust flavour. Our ancient and secret production process combines the finest selection of hops, water and malt. Ingredients: water, barley malt, brown sugar, hops.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Can courtesy of the breathtakingly gorgeous Dany that I took to a tasting at James’ place. Pours a clear gold with thin white head. Sweet corn, toasted corn, a touch of grain. Not a lot going on. Medium bodied, sweet, grainy. Again, not much going on, but it’s not that horrible. Soft bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (6090) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Brown 350ml bottle, best before 1st Feb 2012, drank and reviewed July 2011: poured into a Duvel glass. Looked fine, deep golden yellow with a thick snowy white head on top. The only smells I could find were of grains and a nasty metalic hint. The beer was initially refreshing and dry, but there was something wrong from the start also, it had that terrible metalic feel some cheap lagers have. The blend of hops and malts seemed to produce a nothing taste apart from that tinny flavour I picked up straight away and I really struggled to finish the bottle off.

Metalchopz (3036) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Originally rated January 2005. Just came back from Cuba, and got a chance to try their second most popular brew - after Cristal. This one is a bit stronger as the name says: fuerte. Sampled from a 350ml brown bottle and also had it from a can. Poured a golden colour, deeper then average with a descent head. Some lacing was left on the glass and a small coating from the head stayed on the top of the beer the whole time. The nose was mostly malty. The mouth was of sweet malt, with mild bitterness and a smooth finish. Average mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall, a better brew then Cristal, but pretty mild for a stronger beer.

Found this in Panama City, good overall beer. Initial taste hit me as sweet, but followed up well. Slightly on the soft side for a lighter beer. Overall, I would pick this up if I found it in the states.

visionthing (4683) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2012
Bottle 35cl (labeled Cubanero Fuerte). Pours clear golden with a small fast disappearing white head. Slightly better than Cristal, but still nothing to write home about. Another drinkable, but quite boring and pretty tasteless pale lager. I probably would not drink it again unless I somehow find myself on Cuba.
[Bottle at 15. Internationales Berliner Bierfestival, 08/05/2011]
