2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copenhagen 15/10 2016. 35,5 cl clear bottle from Fakta. Black and gold label with a couple of medals announcing that this is "a taste of paradise" and "matured for a smooth flavour". Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as flimsy layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and sour at the same time. Sweet grainy malts with a hint of rum and vanilla. Something sharp and sour in the background. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is suprisingly watery. Mostly sweetness with a very light touch of rum and sugar. Only very light bitterness. Sweet aftertaste. You will get seriously dissapointed if you expect a Innis & Gunn AS this beer can’t have spent a very long time in the rum casks. But probably refreshing if you are laying around a Beach in Barbados.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful coarse foam. Pleasant aroma of hops and light malt with notes of wet wood (presumably from the barrel aging). An easy drinkable lager that tastes of malt, lime and a little straw. Barrel aging is not as pungent in taste, but it has a small fleeting touch of dark rum which gives a different delicate palate in an otherwise anonymous lager. A little lime taste towards the end gives fine counterpoint to the otherwise very discrete hops. Carbonation is gentle and it is a beer that is both thirst-quenching and easy to drink. I actually like it, but do think it will gain much by being enjoyed on a white sandy beach shaded by palm trees in its country of origin.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear yellow, white head. Malty, grainy aroma. Similar flavour, sweet with low bitterness. Dry-ish. Has a little spice in the finish but I detect neither rum nor barrel except perhaps for touch of wood in the aroma. Only half as crappy as expected.
