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

bobroman (1245) - Torun, POLAND - DEC 3, 2017
Tasted on 18.11.17. Almost completely disappearing head. Clear light golden colour. Metallic aroma with hints of malt. Dry body with minimal maltiness and some hoppy but not very good quality bitterness.

heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 17, 2017
Dec. ’16. Thanks mum! A 0.33 l can that poured a yellow body with medium sized head. Hay and lemon in aroma. Flavor lightly bitter, metallic and sour, not much of anything really. Grainy-hay driven lager without any joy in it. Thin, empty bodied with lightly sour (corn maybe?) finish. Utterly boring and unenjoyable.

hopscotch (11311) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2017
(Backlog rating from 2015) Can... Clear straw-colored pour with a fizzy, brief, white head. Aromatically, this is clean, but muted and practically non-descript. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. This is crisp and fairly clean in both the flavor and the finish, but also thin and quite mundane. Not glaringly adjunct-laden. Refreshing. Not bad for what it is and it’s from Cuba!!! I’m glad the pointless USA/Cuba embargo is no more. Can courtesy of landhoney! Brought back from his vacation in Cuba to share with the south Florida crew! Next up: Cuban rum and Cuban beaches. Cuban cigars? Been smoking them for years. I love 'em. Those rolled in the Dominican Republic are nearly as good. Just an FYI to those in the USA who hit a cigar shop and only have a choice between Dominican and Honduran.

PilsnerDoctor32 (456) - madrid, SPAIN - OCT 20, 2017
Palma Cristal, Botella de 0,35l Color dorada con espuma escasa que desaparece en seguida.Aroma malta, cereales, maiz. Sabor malta, cereales, maiz. Nada especial

1.6
YantarCoast (1558) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 9, 2017
350ml bottle (as Palma Cristal) from Beers of Europe. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is almost non-existent, there’s some corn there, that’s about it. Taste is also extremely bland... corn, water, malt. Rubbish.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Overall nice lager, a little malty but refreshing and balance, on the lager world is fine.

kaserov (1023) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 22, 2017
Color amarillo claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma a maíz y grano. Sabor a maíz, cereal de mal sabor. Medianamente amarga y extraña, pero no tan mala como creía. De lata.

loscovar (770) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - SEP 14, 2017
Several bottles in Cuba. Really normal lager, ok in there but i won't bring it back home

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle @ THT. Why, why why... Why am I drinking this shaite while there are so many good beers to drink. View other ratings for description if you need to know... Just a typical weird country lager.

Svartvit (967) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2017
Shared at the August THT. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Skunky as hell, crazy, weed.
