COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: The Hatuey brand was owned by the Bacardi family. When the Communists nationalized the brewery, the rights to the brand essentially split - Cuban rights to the Cuban government, global rights to the Bacardis. They now produce the beer, to entirely different specs than the Cuban version, in South Carolina. This is the version available in the US.

Had to have a "Cuban" beer in Little Havana. Not horrid for a pale lager but not something I’d bother to drink anywhere else.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes-Brewed by Indian Head Brewery Baltimore, MD)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, slight hops, and slight skunk. Taste of hops and malt. This light bodied brew is not bad but not good.

SlovakSniper (3048) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
En fût au Havana 1957 de South Beach. Une bière parfaite pour se rincer les dents entre deux bouchées de fricase de pollo lorsqu’il fait encore 30 degrés à 21 :00.

bottle at lunch in Miami. just boring yellow with nose of wet grass. tastes of grain, hay, grass, metal, and floral notes. not very good or rememberable. i was wondering what cuban style lager meant. quite the little gimmic to be able to sell in cuban restaurants

Bottle: Blindly this competes with any other APA. Malty, hoppy, herbal & bitter, nice. Food Pairing: Fried whole fresh fish.

reebtogi (4106) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
355ml bottle pours a dirty golden color with a finger of white head and no lacing. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is malty sweet with mild hop bitterness. A little too sweet for my liking and not recommended.

BREWMUSKCLES (2204) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2011
sweet and syrupy with a strong rusty metal taste mixed with a kind of cheap perfume. always has been like that. good bigger bubble carbonation makes it refreshing (with the sting).
Earlier Rating: 7/20/2007 Total Score: 2.1
STRONGER ALCOHOL PRESENCE (AT LEAST %5.5) IN THESE CANS! A BIT SWEET AND CORNY WITH A COMPONENT LIKE BROWN SUGAR WORKED IN TO -CLASS IT UP-. YOU CAN TASTE A BIT OF NICE HOP FLAVOR (LIKE BALLANTINE ALE). AND YES I SUPPPOSE THAT TASTE COULD BE NOTED AS SOUR (ALTHOUGH I WAS A BIT MORE OPTIMISTIC AT FIRST). I NEVER THOUGHT IT WAS THAT HORRIBLE.

jzzbassman (1508) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Had this all over Miami, and it was largely forgettable, particularly with the fine Cuban cigars we had thrust on us by our importers while on my buying trip. Sweet, slight garbage aroma, with an inoffensive flavor that becomes cream corn (not a good thing to me) as it warms. Fuller bodied than most of the other lagers we had.

Bottle from Pacific Liquor in San Diego. Pours dark gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy. Skunk touch? Medium body with mild foamy carbonation. Sweet with some grassy hop. No skunk. Pretty drinkable, but not memorable. Finishes slightly sweet.
