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.

Aroma bem sutil, amarelo escuro quase dourado, pouca espuma e perde rápido. Leve amargor, persiste por pouco tempo, passa, mas nada demais

Backlog. Tried it a couple of times while visiting cuba as well as the cubanero version at home. Standard caribbean lager with a good dose of sweetness.

350ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour with a small head. Aroma of citrus wheat and hops. The taste is slightly sweet with lemon and lime notes. On the sweet side, faint citrus, slight sugary finish. Crisp, and nice to drink on a spring lunchtime.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
350 ml bottle. The beer starts malty-watery. The mainpart is a bit malty-metallic, slightly sweetish and not as easy drinkable as expected. I don’t like this grainy-sweetish taste. The aftertaste is (sadly to say) long, grainy-sweetish-metallic.
Not a very good lager - much too sweetish! --> 6/9/5/6

Pours amber, head disappeared so quickly I don’t know what it looked like. Slightly syrupy, alcoholic aroma with some grassy hops and malt. Taste of grassy hops, followed by maltiness and a slightly bitter finish. Easy and pleasant to drink.
