I can’t say I had the same experience as WastedYouthBrew, but I will wish him all the best in his recuperation along with good razors and skin creams, etc. This a boring light, over-carbonated beer with almost no flavour and no severe flaws to speak of (other than what’s missing in there). It was free at the resort I stayed at and I drank wussy drinks with mint and lime and rum most of the time.

Yea thats the one. Are you sure. Yea Im sure. Thats the flavorless, skunked scumbag that tried to past as a clean crisp lager. So Mr. Consumer you are willing to put your reputation, your image, your life on the line, you are willing to testify to us, here today, that this is one of the most lame and horrid beers that you have ever tasted. Yes thats correct. And I will prove myself to be correct. If you all take the magical pills I have provided I will show everyone my theory. Gulp! We are now traveling back in time to the Cuban Bucanero Brewery where we see Fidel Castro secretly placing urine in the Cristal brewing containers. Deranged, deranged but true, so sad that your body starts to tingle, so repulsive that the nipples on your ass start to rise and even more so the hair on the tip of your penis springs forth and projects across the room at such a speed that the scrotums on your knees start to shiver. I rest my case. I have no further questions your honor.

Is that what Cubans have to drink? Still they should not be too sad. Cambodia got Angkor. Slightly skunky, very nothing - watery mouthfell liquid.

RateBeer Summer (Toronto) ’02: This is truly bad, bland yellow beer that is not as fizzy as some. Lift the Cuban embargo!

Budweiser in appearance, mild sweet aroma. Bland slightly sweet beer that’s better than Bud, but barely (not too offensive, but doesn’t qualify as inoffensive).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hoppy nose to this, or maybe it’s just skunky. Not bad, with some bitterness.

Very grassy smell, pale. Not a good taste. Unpleasant. Maybe it’s old, or the green bottle allowed it to age quickly.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
transparent golden colour, few head, typical carton-like aroma of the bad lagers, fresh and crisp, dry with some herbal notes which make it just drinkable
