La Bucanero Fuerte toma su nombre de las viejas leyendas de los piratas del Caribe.

Con el sabor fuerte de una cerveza con masmás cuerpo, la Bucanero Fuerte está elaborada con los ingredientes más frescos y naturales, la malta de calidad superior se mezcla con un toque de la más fina azúcar cubana. 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.
Bucanero Fuerte gets its name from old legends of the pirates that roamed the Caribbean Sea. Considering that Bucanero Fuerte is one of the best hidden treasures of Cuban beer, this connection is fitting. Strong and full-flavored, Bucanero Fuerte is made from the most natural and freshest ingredients, with superior malt and is blended with just a touch of Cuba’s finest sugars. Having more alcohol, a deeper amber color, and a refreshing taste makes Bucanero Fuerte a remarkably 100% original Cuban beer. Over the years Bucanero Fuerte has become a favorite amongst Cubans as a beer to drink with friends while playing domino’s or watching a baseball game. It is quickly proving itself to be a timeless classic. Bucanero brings the mystery and passion of Cuba in a golden beer, with a vigourous and robust flavour. Our ancient and secret production process combines the finest selection of hops, water and malt. Ingredients: water, barley malt, brown sugar, hops.

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 (4040) - 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 (3306) - 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.

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 (578) - 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.
