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.

35 cl bottle @ Kasteel de Breckt, Baarlo.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Grassy aroma, some pale malts and faint hops. Hay on the flavor, some starch. A bit too grassy.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet biscuits, cereal and grass. Tastes of dry grass, biscuit and fruit peel. Dry aftertaste.

Light fruit, in a pleasant caramel malty background. It is the first instinct of this lager from Cuba offers. Hop bitterness is present, but is passive in the finish. A slightly sweet lager, which keeps average. It is not in any way surprising.

Recieved as a gift. Mild aroma, clear colour. Same as the other lagers from the caribbeans.
