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/

corn and cardboard with some kind of malt maybe old pellet. sure is different than the other one which isnt a great beer either. a brown sugar thing and a tinge of bitter near the finish.

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.

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

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 Id 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 didnt leave much of an impression on me beyond a cool label and the story of Hatuey a rebel indian in Cuba I believe...

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.

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.
