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. Ingredientes: agua, cebada malteada, azúcar de caña, lúpulo.

Farewell Bespin Bottleshare. Clear pale amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Thin dry palate. Papery thin dry malts. Trace of over ripe citrus. Dry papery malt finish. Pretty rough and although the warming of relations with the USA might spoil some of thd unique Cuban charm, lets hope the good people of Cuba will get access to better beers than this dross.

Had one of these while I was in Cuba, it was a nice change of pace from rum and Crystal. Pours amber. Taste has caramel and malt. Pretty mild.

Had this in Mexico best by 06/09/17. Either it’s 3 months old or 6. Doesn’t look good or smell good. Skunky, buttery. Fairly dry. Some breadiness. Dumped. Thanks inbev, you just lost the cold beer war.

Złote. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa. Opada. Aromat słodowy, lekko alkoholowy. W smaku dziwnie kwaskowaty, jest lekka nuta cukru. Nie zachwyca.

355ml Can in Santa Clara, Cuba (1 CUC):
A definite basic lager but an enjoyable one for what it was; I was expecting this one to be a lot worse than it proved to be prior to opening it. The beer was light & semi-sweet with some basic corn & vegetable adjuncts coming through alongside a light bitterness & touches of hay. It was inoffensive & very easy to drink, particularly while sitting in the Cuban sun; a welcome first Cuban beer & one that I ended up going back to several times over the course of my two weeks in the country.

UXO (1810) - CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
Appearance: clear pale gold with a thin, short-lived white head, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: grainy pale malt, adjunct sweetness, grassy, light skunk. (4/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Medium-light watery body, moderate carbonation, sweetish short duration finish. (2/5) My guess is this is basically the same recipe as Cristal, but with a slightly beefier malt bill, adding a little more colour, body, and ABV. But to be honest, I can’t be arsed to do the research. Slightly better than Cristal, perhaps, but still one that really belongs on a hot beach and pretty much nowhere else. And no, it’s not particularly fuerte. (8/20)

djoeye (4399) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2016
Aroma; pale malts, fruits, banana, yeast, caramel, sweet apple. Look; pearl head, clear half deep golden body. Taste; caramel, malts, apple, yeast, bread note, wort note - leading to a malt-fruity finish. Feel; normal. Overall; no offs, very straight, nothing really special, except for the origin.
