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.

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.

minutemat (3853) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016
330ml bottle as Cubanero Fuerte. Pours clear gold, good white head. Aroma is grassy, light caramel malt. Taste is smooth, light, good balance, no real off-flavours, some mild caramel brown sugar hints. Quite harmless and surprisingly drinkable.

bartlebier (3250) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2016
As Cubanero Fuerte, 350ml. - Bref: sweet canned corn juice meets diluted rum, vanilla barrel and all in this Cuban macro lager. - Copperish, heavy pour. Grainy sulphurs, sweetish corn and lemonade in aroma. Quite slick and mouthfilling for a pale lager - brown sugar doing the job of Vienna malts. Gets Aldi-rum sweet very fast, less than quenching, a few notches below a headstrong mix, but drinkable.

CrackedConch (10) - CAYMAN ISLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Poured a golden color beer with a medium foamy head that disappeared a bit too quickly. Aroma is quite weak with only some malt being noticeable. Taste is quite sweet withy slight watery finish. Overall, this is better then most Caribean lager out there.

Melker (252) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2016
Bought as "’Cubanero". Just had to rate it because it’s cuban. It’s just a pale easy to drink lager like corona. Didn’t taste very much.

Michael27 (442) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2016
Aus der Flasche (vom Händler bezogen) getrunken. Hellgelb im Glas mit aufschäumender Krone. Perlt nicht nach. Riecht nach nassem Heu. Was "fuerte" sein soll, würde sich wohl erst nach längerem Trinken erschließen, was an aber besser bleiben lassen sollte.

hawthorne00 (3364) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2016
As Cubanero Fuerte. Clear gold with a white head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty with hints of floral and peppery hops. Thinner than suggested by the aroma and really a bit light on for well over 5%. Toasty turns out to be more bland and sugary. Modest bitter finish is very slightly spicy. Not much else to it, although it’s pretty clean. A bit of a let down after the decent aroma.
