Here one has to appreciate the context...all Cuban beers are well..lousy, but this is the best, and much better than Cristal. My beer of choice (and in Cuba there is very limited choice) when I am back home in Cuba. Context is my balcony facing the Malecon after walking the streets of Havana... and there Bucanero Fuerte, si es fuerte, it comes on strong, clean, straight to the point. I read these reviews...Lemons??? Seriously cuban beers with Lemons???? Just to let you know, if you find yourself in Cuba this is the beer to ask for, and you will be disappointed, but then comes all the rest, so I will save you some time and even bigger disappointements.

Pale amber, minimal head. Strong malty aroma. Very little hops aroma or flavor. Cheaply made and tastes it.

Lager interesante. Bastane por encima de la (bajísima) media de las adjunct lager. Color ámbar muy claro (dorada oscura), y espuma bonita. Buen aspecto. Aroma amargo. Agradable sabor, con regusto amargo no muy intenso que llena la boca. Cuerpo limitado, pero muy bebible.

Isla Mujeres grocery store bottle. Honestly I was hoping that "fuerte" would put this into the malt liquor category but no luck. Darker color but no bigger taste. If nothing else, another Cuba tick! Another reason communism sucks: terrible beer.

Cette bière est carrément à la Cristal ce que la Molson Dry est à la Molson Ex! L’alcool y est plus métallique en bouche et la finale à peine plus sèche. Je ne sais pas laquelle je préfère entre le deux, mais je sais que je n’en raffole aucune. Les seules qualités de cette bière sont d’être gratuites à l’inifini dans le forfait et d’avoir une buvabilité qui permet cet "infinité" dans l’absolu. Bière de plage. Par défaut!

guil0000 (295) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Nose of sweet malt and a bit of alcohol. Sweet taste with a bit of lingering alcohol. Medium body. Nothing really exciting.

MrBlueSky93 (479) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours golden, no head, low carbonation. Aroma of grain, honey, wheat. Taste of initial honey, some grain, touch of grass a little wheat. All in all, pretty bland, carbonation really lets it down.

exeter (451) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
Pretty crappy. Taste sweet with corn and maybe a bit of citrus. Has no head and no lacing. Boring

Bottle at home. Pours clear golden, nose is floral, toffee, taste is pretty similar, unexciting.

Butelka 0,35 zakupiona w Warszawie.Barwa złota, piana znika szybko, mocno gazowane, bąbelki do końca. Aromat słodowy oraz trawy i cytrusów. Wytrawne, czuc alkohol. Całkiem dobre piwo.
