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.

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.

massingasetta (312) - München, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
When I took this beer into my hand I immediately thought that I would get a typical international lager taste. I was pleasantly surprised that this beer is more refined and tasty, and also slightly more heavy. A good caribbean beer.

Not offensive but pretty ordinary. Lacking any aroma and it is really bland. Not undrinkable.
