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.

ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle: Blindly this competes with any other APA. Malty, hoppy, herbal & bitter, nice. Food Pairing: Fried whole fresh fish.

gripweed57 (2463) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2017
From old tasting notes. Hazy medium gold color. Lots of bubbles. Sweetish malty foretaste. Dry mouth coating finish. Light dry aftertaste.

snoworsummer (5697) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 From a bottle. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like corn, straw, pale malts, and grassy hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like pale malts, grassy hops, straw, and corn.

sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Bottle. Pours clear gold. Aroma is pale/pilsner malt, heavy adjuncts, faint caramel, and fruity yeast esters. Flavor is bland malt profile, wet paper, some yeast ester sweetness, and faint caramel malt. Light/medium body.

Chudwick (3210) - 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 (5072) - 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.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2016
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.

shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Fairly flat aroma with a touch grain, a bit herbal/tea; dull pale golden yellow color, minimal white head; sweet, malty/grainy, tea, light toffee, good amount of herbal/earthy hop bite in the crisp finish; ligh medium body, really smooth; actually quite good and exceeded my expectations! 12 fl oz bottle at Sazon Cuban Cuisine in Miami, FL.

Luvystypotables (1967) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma of malt and hops, pours a clear golden color with a lasting white head. Moderate carbonation with a taste of malt, hops and sweet caramel, medium body with a sweet malt finish.

mansquito (6438) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2015
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.

mike67 (1198) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2015
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.
