1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Craft Beer Rising. Pours pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma or vanilla and rum. Aroma is nice but flavour is bland and slightly metallic with no hint of rum. Might be better on a beach and not February in London.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle, poured pale golden. Aroma is sweeter than a typical lager with floral notes. Although the body is light, it does contain some of that sweetness not typically found in a lager. No rum flavors, but smooth. Finish is light. Prefer this over some other island lagers.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet lager aroma. Slightly unclear but still transparent. Foam stays longer than average lager. Still bit too fast. Surprised to really meet rum in the taste. Without that not much but is not plane or simple or thin.

Bottle ( Clear ) Yellow with a small creamy head. Slightly wooden flavour but apart from this there was nothing there. Thin body and quite disappointing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear bottle at a bar inside the cruise terminal area of Bridgetown, Barbados on 5th April 2014. Paid 6 US Dollars for it, waste of money. Struggled to find any taste or aroma with any Rum involved, just a sad lager with an interesting name and idea that didn’t live up to the cost. Thought it would be stronger in ABV as well as in the taste. In one word: Bland.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home watching WSM. Damn Brian Shaw is strong. Poured a pale gold with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of bread, malts, dust. Flavour is malty, light fruit. Not much to see here. Don’t know what happened to the rum.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaska. Ljusgul med vitt skum som snart sjunker ihop. Doftar gräs, majs, jord och svag vanilj. I smaken är vaniljen desto mer framträdande. Jag drack senare en rom med vaniljinslag och det är inte utan att det fanns likheter med denna öl. Dessutom hittas gräs och krispig citron i smaken. Torr munkänsla.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
24th February 2014
Hazy pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and dry with a mild minerally crisp trailing edge. Smooth dry pale malt. A dominant and very odd flavour of dried milk powder - Marvel! Whisper of citrus before a dry finish. Very odd.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: poured a golden with white head. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste was grain, had a light sweet rum tang at the end.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottle all the way from sunny Worthing. Via Beers of Europe. Slightly diaphanous gold with an undulating white foam. Lime zest and pale cereal aroma; same taste leaning towards lime shandy and rice with a vague gnaw of conifer. Virtually Zero rum or oak. Bud-like streaks. Might splash some Mount Gay in it. Not unpleasant but deeply disappointing.
