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.

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.

Bottle 350 ml from an Amazon order of Latin beers. Malty nose. Clear golden body and a short-lived white head. Malty taste with a citrus finish. Kind of average pale lager.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle, thnx to Saeglopur, country rating #100. Pours a clear pale lager beer, completely clear, darker golden with a small white head on top. Aroma of some skunky lager notes, corn and rice, grainy. Flavor is medium sweet, very thin, low level of carbonation and really easy drinkable. Best drank when cold, obviously, certainly not disturbing, just a decent lager.

355ml can thanks to Amy & Mark. No head whatsoever. Clear amber body. Nose is cardboard, straw, bready malt. Flavour has some fruitiness about it, malt dominates, brown sugar, slightly bitter aftertaste. High carbonation, slight stickiness, finish could be cleaner. Not a bad lager.

bozoNZ (777) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 10, 2017
Can. Cold, wet, fizzy. Not much else to say really. Normal standard lagery stuff. Probably better than the local water.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
January 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks LKS! As ’Cubanero Fuerte. Golden yellow, clear and still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary, airy, chewed up chewing gum. Body is light, frothy with tingly to spritzy carbonation. Taste is light sugary malts, soggy biscuit with a watery finish. Not very nice but it’s not overly offensive either. (2.0)

bewyder (493) - FRANCE - FEB 28, 2017
Dorée claire limpide, malt doux et léger sucré, légère rondeur pour une lager. Sans grand intérêt mais pas désagréable. Bouteille 35cl rapportée de Cuba par la famille, bue le 24/02/2017.

LordOfTheSkyQC (1) - Preissac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2017 does not count
The best thing about this beer is when it’s ice cold and outside is really hot. This beer is nothing special. Commercial level beer at best. It will get you drunk faster than crystal while in Cuba so that a plus. Got that sugary taste more than crystal. Darker than crystal. All in all one of the best beers in Cuba. That doesn’t mean much obviously.

33 cl bottle at Palador Stockholm. Pours golden with little head. Sweet aroma with some malty taste. Very mild and leaves little after taste.
