No doubt this will be nice in the hot cuban sun. But apart from that, it is a watery and boring beer.

From Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. Playing Huntmans The Winter’s Curse. Bottled on 7 Feb 2016. Typical pale lager, maybe a bit more malty than usual. Clean, with no odd flavors and not disgusting

MarcoBasile (280) - DENMARK - JUN 9, 2017
Pours pale straw colored body. Aroma is light and grainy with a hint of citrus fruit. Slight hops. Taste is crisp, grainy and malty.

Can procured from Cuba cheers Deb; straw yellow pour with a tiny white head, aroma has corn and grass, taste has decent crisp sweet corn action, very fizzy, crisp and refreshing, why did Tony Montana leave when he had this stuff on tap, because he is an entrepreneur that’s why...

350 ml bottle from an Amazon order of South American beers. Malty nose with citrus tones. Short lived white head, clear golden body. Malty, kind of watery taste as of any average lager beer, and nothing special.

I drank this beer yesterday at Paris, Bastille, in one latino restaurant. I personnaly think that this beer is boring, it could be nice, on the beach, but the quality is like thousands breweries in South America, a lot of advertising with almost nacked women for a product as poor as a bad telenovela at the TV to clean your brain, so not much interest. The color is yellow/gold, typical from lager, thin and white head, regular carbonation. The taste is malty, sweet, kind of sugar, as usual few hop and watery, you have the same taste during all the time that you drink your bottle, bof-bof.

blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2017
[Can (355ml)] Pours a clear pale gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma of grain, vegetal notes, sugar, hay and a just a hint of grassy hops. Not a pleasant flavour, just drinkable: Grainy and sweet along with pale malt and again, a hint of grassy hops. Iffy finish. Watery mouthfeel and light bodied. Maybe I’d drink this in Cuba, maybe, but I certainly wouldn’t drink this at home.

Lots of cans in Havana. Pours clear gold, white soapy foam. Aroma is grain, soap, metal, straw. Flavor is the same. I mean, it's a pale lager.

Can thanks to Amy & Mark. Thin white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Clear golden body. Nose of cereal and straw. Flavour is straw, malt, biscuit. Medium carbonation, clean mouthfeel. Standard lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Thnx to Ben. Pours very clear blonde. small white head. Smell is sweet, chemicals, apples - but not by far in a good way. Taste is bitter, damn chemical, harsh maltsyrup comming across as rather stale, chemical , chemical ( did I say chemical ) and not fresh. Finish is chemical, bit sweet. The mild bitterness it has is chemical, and fades instantly. So yeah, pretty bad. Almost as bad as AB-INB... oh wait... what a surprise --’
