Really bad. Adjuncts-a-plenty. Really sweet and fizzy, it reminded me a hell of a lot of cheap Aussie lagers, which made me homesick.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sparkling lager with a lightly hopped aroma, and a sweet/dryly finished flavour. A reasonable lager.

Don't tell the State Department that I bought a bottle of this while in London, but I suppose I can always claim I did it under the "academic research" exemption. What I learned was that it was a lesson in the influence of adjuncts on beer. Fizzy white head. Corn flavors, characteristically sweet like many international lagers. In truth, while clearly bad beer, it had a flavor that I don't particularly mind and it went well enough with friends and dinner. And who are we kidding, this is a beer worth trying only to tick another country off the list.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Gold, poor head and moderate condition. Foul aromas of crap, smoke and mothballs, soft and unsettlingly dissolving in the mouth. Slight chalkiness, although that may just be the enamel being stripped from your teeth. Justifies the US boycott of Cuba in a mouthful.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Smells sweet and malty and also a bit "off". This is a clear, golden beer that looks very still, amazing considering how fizzy and bloating it is. Flavours are..not evident. The slight sourness on the finish is the best aspect of this beer. Pretty hopeless. Castro probably forces this on his citizens.

Tinima is the largest of the six breweries in Cuba, and is undergoing modernisation to keep up with the demand in Europe for this slimey cheap cereal lager. Splashed on the label are the words "Cerveza de Cuba" over an evocative picture of palms trees against a blue sky. No doubt if they put a picture of Fidel Castro's beard on the back they would triple production. It started off well - a soft creamy first mouthful with hints of butter. But as the carbonation dies down so the flavour fizzles away leaving a taste of corn starch and a metallic tang of cheap hops.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Pale golden. Corn aroma. Light bodied, very bready. Low bitterness. Drinkable, but certainly nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hard to describe this one. At first it reminded me of liquid cardboard but after a while it started to taste a little nicer.
Tastes like a pils that has gone wrong.There must be a lot of reasons to visit Cuba but this isn't one of them.

Phew - smells like canned corn. Hazy anemic gold color and a fizzy head. Cardboard aftertaste and water. Worthless.
