355ml Can from Complejo La Princesa, Cienfugos, Cuba (20 CUP):markschiedon (692) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2016
Cheap & basic one but that was as expected going in; the fact that every can of the stuff also looks quite faded doesn’t help its case either. That being said, the beer was actually a little better than I’d imagined & despite being a bland, basic offering it was easy to drink & refreshing in the sun. It’s not a beer I’d pick up again outside of Cuba other than for the novelty of it but it was an okay beer when judged against other cheap pale lagers.
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle.
Not much aroma.
The clear golden beer has a small white head.
A pretty bitter taste.
Medium carbonated. Oakes (19711) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2016
Dull gold colour. No head. Grainy nose with a vague hop extract note. A little sweetish, a little fizzy. Really hollow body, disappearing in the finish. Not offensive but just another pale lager. I was able to drink several of these at a peso bar in Santa Clara, so it has at least some staying power. Desverger (14392) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle at Tuesday Share, Taphouse, Copenhagen - (my first Cuban beer!) clear yellow pour with small white head. Aroma and taste is grassy and grainy, some straw and hay, light and watery, not as bad as expected tbh. joergen (29994) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2015
Clear yellow colored with a medium sized white head.
Malty aroma of hay and sulfur.
Malty flavor of hay and grain.

Can taste on the 14/09/2015 at Cienfuegos (Cuba). Cuban beer in a cuban atmosphere....great atmosphere bad beer and very similar to Mayabe. Next one please! prawlie (1703) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Can in a bar in Havana on a very hot day. Looks like fizzy apple juice. Its a bit like Cuban Coors, incredibly bland yet somewhat refreshing in 35°C heat. Have Bucanero instead.
