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.

Homer321 (4316) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle bought in Nassau. Tricked into thinking I was getting a Cuba tick. Nose is malty sweet with toffee and bread crust with toast. Lightly hazy orange color. Small white head. Taste is malty sweet with lightly sweet bread flavors. Actually not a bad beer. Just kind of a bland light red ale. A touch sweet but otherwise nice.

Bottle at Campton Yard, Miami. Body is orange with medium head. Nose is floral and fruits. Taste similar with some hops in it. Kind of nondescript.

New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($2.25): pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma was grain and some hops. Really not a bad pale lager. No off taste. Pretty clean. Certainly a hop or two were used in the beer.

12 oz bottle at Cuban restaurant, NYC. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head. Aroma is of sweet, juicy malt, apples. Body is medium and smooth. Herbal hops are present on the palate as well as sweet malt, somewhat salty. Finish is long and dry. It was worth to try once.

kaser (5683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Not bad for a cheap island beer. Had 12oz bottle at Miami airport. Orange and cloudy with white head. Aroma is fresh fruit and cherry Chapstick. Never mind. That is Saras Chapstick on the rim I smell. Taste is mild fruits and good flavor for this kind of beer. Can't describe it.

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.
