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.

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.

Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2005
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.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 35 cl) Nice pilsener golden with a fairly decent and very white head. If I read the back label correctly one could get the notion that there’s more corn than barley in this. But I don’t get the chicken-fodderish feeling here as most often with beers of high corn-content. Actually a very straight and hoppy lager. Comes in a stylish longneck bottle. 290305

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized head. Vegetably malty aroma, with weak malty hints. Vegetably malts and hops in flavour. Standard lager, but wellbalanced. Aftertaste is maltish and hoppy and lasts for quite a while. 3 2 4 2 6

Travlr (17708) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle courtesy of yespr - thank you sir! Clear yellow color, coca-cola style head that disappears in seconds. Aroma of celery and white pepper. Taste is watery malt with few hops, low carbonation, almost flat. Not the worst developing world lager. I feel very subversive drinking it - I hope it doesn,t affect my security clearance!
