0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Dull dark gold colour. Rather rank aroma, like rotting this and that. Pretty terrible. Flat, lifeless cardboard with hints of garbage. Definitely subpar but at 10-15 MN it’s amongst the cheapest beers I’ve had. Zhigulevskoe del sur! (Couldn’t find it in Santiago, but any peso joint in Bayamo will do the trick).

I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

(Bottle) Shared at the PNW Christmas 2006 party at Oakes on December 9th. Nice appearance. Hoppy banana/cantaloupe. A very tinny tonic.

Light amber color. Crappy crab apples, adjunct hell nose. Sour, crab apples, dirty mouth. Hell, fuck, shit.
WOW, I am surprised, I am fairly generous.

canette, bière blonde commerciale sans intérêt aucun, vraiment sans intéret comme la pluspart des bières provenant de pays chauds.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I was in Santiago de Cuba years ago and at the time drank this beer. It was from dollar shops but still cheap for foreigners. A fairly standard easy drinking lager. Nothing special but a nice beer on a hot day. It didn’t leave much of an impression on me beyond a cool label and the story of Hatuey a rebel indian in Cuba I believe...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a very good beer. Bought a 6 pack on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and after drinking one, 5 stayed in the mini fridge until the day before I left. Awful metallic and sweet taste with a nasty artificial caramel flavor. Was too sweet and too heavy. Mild carbonation. I chose the flavorless Sands and Kalik over this all week.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Amber with a light head and spotty lacing. A beautiful smell of rank pain. Flavor is pure communism. Evil and lifeless.

This commy offering deserves little speak. Sour in all regards with a tough smelly odor. Ouch, my mouth needs cleaning.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (in Santiago de Cuba). Pours a dark golden color with a small white head. Taste is of malt, hops and with a very distinct corn flavour. Crisp but a bit sour and a really weird skunky taste. Not completely terrible, but nothing I’d ever want to have again.
