StueyD (1438) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe as Cubanero Fuerte. A mid amber orange coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A very light aroma, some biscuity malt and weak fruity hop. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, some malt elements, biscuity, bready and a touch of spice, then a mild fruity hop bitterness. The finish continues the hoppiness into a weak end.

Can bought in Cuba several times. Golden lager color with little carbon. Smells like metal, alcohol and a little hops. Taste light sweet. My favourite beer in my class-trip to cuba.

15/II/15 - 33cl can @ home - BB: 23/I/15 (2015-227) Thanks to Erwin and Johan for the can!

Clear dark blond beer, big fizzy aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit sweet, sugary, some corn flakes, fruity touch, bit of banana. Aftertaste: bit grassy, corn flakes, sugary, some banana, metallic, little hoppy. Drinkable, but boring stuff as suspected. Hey, another Cuban tick! :p

Espuma efímera que se disipa enseguida, color dorado brillante y transparante, no tiene apenas aroma en nariz, sabor suave y bastante gasificada, regusto corto

Alengrin (3223) - BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2015
Cuba’s national standard lager, tasted as Cubanero Fuerte. Creamy, crackling, quite thick but quickly diminishing, snow white head leaving a fair amount of lacing, colour clear ’old gold’ with good fizz. Sweetish aroma, already a bit oxidized, bready malts, popcorn, minerals, iron, sourish touch and a chalky sweetishness reminding me a bit of aspartame; hops are nowhere to be seen. Sweetish, grainy onset with a hint of bready sweet malts, sourish grains again, clear corn presence, medium carbonation for this style; minerally and metallic body, hint of biscuit, with a mild, leafy and somewhat herbal hop bitterishness still showing up in the finish, drying a bit. Another bland pale lager indeed, but not as bad as expected. Still, it cannot convince me of associating Cuba with anything else than rhum and good cigars when it comes to the ’worldly’ pleasures.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s in Asagaya. Drank out of the bottle. Hint of pepper lodged between grain. Medium body. Crisp finish. Terribly boring...

Idiosynkrasie (4911) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2015
350ml bottle [Cubanero]. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Muggy, grainy aroma, wet strawy, some malt spiciness. Taste is monotonous, minimally sweet pale malty, slightly grainy and strawy. Not absolutely "fuerte", but definitely for a Pale Lager.

Lo primero que llama la atención sin duda es su atractiva etiqueta, con ese bucanero encabezando la botella. Cerveza rubia dorada de escasa espuma. El aroma es muy escaso, destacando en último caso la malta. Sabor equilibrado entre el amargor del lúpulo y el azúcar de la cerveza. Cierta personalidad al medio trago y un repunte final muy discreto.

350 ml. bottle. Thanks Gabriel. Pours a clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, grain, and a bit of grass. Better than many Pale Lagers.
