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.

DeanF (2529) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
Sampled at a Cuban restaurant in Miami Beach. Has a strong grain aroma. Looks like yellow water, minimal head and light gold body. Flavour is okay graininess with no complexity. Dry finish. A very average lager.

Chudwick (3392) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2016
12oz bottle in Nicaragua. Sweet corn nose. Sip is grainy and comically typical of a not so good lager. I’d rather drink rum.

Homer321 (5202) - 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.
