Beer Of The Week # 21 // Palma Cristal


The brewery in Holguin was built in 1988 with the help of East German Technology, lest not forget that close relationship with the USSR! At this time, however, the only beer brand Mayabe was produced at the brewery though they now produce a range of six beers, two of which have picked up awards, including Palma Cristal, which is apparently Castro’s favorite beer

This cerveja is clear gold in colour and lightly carbonated. Mild corn, grain and malt notes are all apparent on the nose. Light and slightly metallic this beer is crisp with delicate citrus notes. Refreshing and easy drinking this is a perfect tipple for these hot, summer days or sitting on a beach in Cuba! 33cl // 4.9% ABV // £1.89
