COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NOT AVAILABLE IN THE USA. The Hatuey brand originated in Cuba and was owned by the Bacardi family. When the Communists nationalized the brewery, the brand essentially split. While the Bacardis own the brand for the global market and produce it under contract, the Cuban government still operates a brewery in Santiago to produce this as a local (peso) beer for the Oriente. Hatuey found in the United States is this beer: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hatuey-lager-beer-usa/9403/

This beer has a very complicated provenance even inside of Cuba, during the early 1990s, for a while this beer was sold on the dollar market, and I give the rating for THAT beer, but it has since returned (late 1990s?) to the Cuban peso market (around 10 Cuban pesos/33centsUS) and that beer, like every Cuban beer in the Cuban peso market is absolute swill. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Normal ale Cuban roots but American made, would rate as a standard beer will have again just because I am half Cuban.

StoutHead (674) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2014
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.

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...

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.

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

CapFlu (4550) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2006
(Bottle) Shared at the PNW Christmas 2006 party at Oakes on December 9th. Nice appearance. Hoppy banana/cantaloupe. A very tinny tonic.

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

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.
