2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Er staat fuerte op het flesje maar met 5,4 alcohol volume is dit niet echt een sterk bier. De geur, de kleur, de smaak: allemaal nogal gemiddeld. Lijkt een beetje op blonde leffe.

350ml brown bottle. Crystal golden with lots of carbonation bubbles. Finely beaded white head, no lacing. Sweet grainy nose. Taste has sweet grain, straw, bread and light lemon. Clean finish with a little grain. A pretty simple pale lager, but I quite enjoyed it.

Can split at my 40th bash at CBC Islo, thanks to Rilester for throwing this one towards me, 11/10/14.
Very lightly hazed golden with a decent white covering.
Nose is pale malt, straw, bready, faint citric.
Taste comprises much the same, light cereal, pale malt, lemon drizzle, grainy, bread.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok pale lager, theres a lot worse out there!

Gold with a fizzy, white, lacy, disappearing head. Smells of malt, toffee, sugar and corn. Tastes of grain with a little hop bitterness with corn and alcohol. Yummy
