1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cuba has two beers on the dollar market and for export, Cristal and Bucanero. Cristal is big with the tourists, but you give a Cuban a choice and they will go with Burcanero. Cristal is a typical lager, passable, given the alternatives in Cuba. Light, characterless, sip it cold, forcus not on "palate" but the waves,sand, and what you are waiting for to walk down the beach. They sell Heinken and Corona in Cuba now. GIven these alternatives...go native.

35 cl bottle, 2.60€. Pale gold color, bubbly white head with decent lacing, skunky nose right off the cap. Aroma is grainy with a sugary note. Sugary taste, faint bitterness. Watery body, average carbonation. Weak tropical lager, anonymous as expected and expensive here.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Directly from the bottle at the Black Dog, Vauxhall. No idea what this looks like, but I’m sure I’m not missing out. Smells of cannabis and not much else. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Taste - sodawater...with a hint of lagery lager. Not great, but at least I can cross Cuba off my list of rated countries.

An acceptable beer when exiting the airport after clearing aduana in Cuba. Your basic macro lager that fills my Bubba when on the beach. Other than that, very forgettable taste wise.

Bottle at Havana club in panama. Smells and Tastes like a shot of whiskey. Golden from bottle. Can't get past the smell. Awful. Carmel and butterscotch but in a bad way. Hope it is skunked
