2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Sampled at a resort in Varadero, Cuba. Medium gold in color with lots of carbonation. Unmistakable malty aroma of unfermented wort which no homebrewer could mistake, along with a touch of herbal hops. Somewhat more robust than the other Cuban lagers that I sampled, but still a little on the thin and astringent side. Slight mineral flavor, along with a bit of malt and more German noble hops. Sort of like a poorly made Warsteiner.

Where else do you find a Cuban beer but in a supermarket in Kuala Lumpur? I will resist from making a joke about how many buckaneros it cost me but the picture of the pirate shows that he has a fine Ringgit in his ear (nyuk nyuk). Sure is a pale lager with all the hallmarks of its style. Strangely the lack of hop and malt flavour is so expected that it is a reasonable beer in comparison to the other beers up here apart from the meaty stouts of course. Still not a great beer of course but better consumed in an outdoor cafe than my air conditioned room.

(on bottle9 "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. "
Yeah right, you, the lamest pirat of them all.

A yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of corn, and so is the flavor, though in the flavor there are also traces of hops.
