When you think you have a Cuban beer, it turn out to be a cheap Dutch brew. OK with the weather contributing to the score, it’s still doable. (Cuba 201701)

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml Can from El Fenix shop in Trinidad, Cuba (1 CUC):
A very basic & quite a cheap lager on the whole, I can see why the Dutch ship this one straight to Cuba rather than palm it off on the local population. The beer was boring & unexciting, I struggled to detect much of anything at times other than some basic adjuncts & a cheap, almost metallic taste that was coupled with a background bitterness. There wasn’t too much that was terrible about it really, but then there wasn’t anything good either & it’s definitely not one I’d have again; if pushed I’d go for water over another of these.

Clear gold. Lasting white head. Sweet, candy-ish aroma w/ some licorice notes. Sugary feel. Very sweet, corn syrup flavour w/ little bitterness.
