1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured bright golen with a minimal white head. Aroma of sweet grain. Weak, watery body, flavour is sweet and cloying. Might be palatable if completely frozen.
Sampled from 0.35 l bottle as 'Cubanero Fuerte', purchased at my local crap dealer, best before February 2018. Clear, golden amber with a very thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, quite skunky and slightly grassy aroma of grains and some straw. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, skunky and a bit grassy taste of grains, some straw and light honey, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly grassy and skunky finish accompanied by the obligatory cardboard and metallic notes. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Never again. Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2017

One of the best beers in Cuba. The bottle is quite rare, you mostly get a can. Has a good taste when you drink it real cold! Acaro (308) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2017
