Sweet, lime aroma. False citrus, boiled corn taste. Very sweet and some chemical added, which should be a rum flavor.

If rum tastes like plastic then this is the McCoy! Otherwise this is a drink that tastes like plastic, but with an Orange slice, which I added as per the label. This was cheap, I expected it to be nasty. It was and is a drink that you should avoid. It is particularly foul.

AtronSeige (596) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma: Medium-high spiced rum, vanilla, oak, No malt or hops, but it can be easily hidden in a Premium American Lager. Very sweet Appearance: Clear gold body. Small frothy, white head. Good retention. Flavour: Medium-high rum and vanilla. The vanilla is quite strong, giving the beer and almost "Creme Soda" taste. Very sweet, Light bitterness, Lingering sweetness. Very little beer flavours. Mouthfeel: Light body, medium-high carbonation. Overall: Quite interesting, but I would considering lowering the vanilla quite a bit. The run is there, but it gets masked by the vanilla. I expected the vanilla to be reminiscent of oak, not an aggressive aroma and flavour of a Creme Soda! Soda like sweetness makes this beer unpleasant. 330ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 23. Specialty Beer 1C. Premium American Lager

Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malt. The flavour is medium sweet with a sweet caramel malt, light fruit palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A real sweetie. I’ve tasted worse beers.

330ml bottle as a gift:
Very strong aroma that’s bad with lots of skunk& off-notes filling the room with some sweetness if you really try to detect it . Some lime comes through too but these smells are soon followed by what I can only assume is rum (or rum flavouring of some sort) & it’s pretty poor. The may also be some burnt sugar in there but in truth this beer smells terrible.
Unbelievably clear looking, slightly amber tinged straw that looks like the beer has been diluted in water. The head is a 1cm, foamy white affair that holds better than you’d expect.
Taste only slightly better than it smells, & only just. Faint sweetness initially before the rum flavours & burnt sugar take over. Tonnes of skunk & off-flavours with some vanilla, corn & rubbish bitterness coming through.
Light bodied, lots of skunk with some sweetness & hints of bitterness. A lot of carbonation but isn’t quite gassy or overdone & the finish is a sharp, dry one.

A horrible beer from beginning to end, this one was a hard drink to swallow and one that I couldn’t finish in the end. The taste, not to mention the smell, was all over the place and ended up tasting like a chemistry experiment gone wrong.

minutemat (1677) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
330ml bottle from God knows where! Have no idea how this ended up on my beer shelf. Pours clear gold with white head. Vanilla / lime aroma, sickly sweet taste with vanilla, custard, sweet rum and fizzy lemonade. Ugh.

aleksander9 (449) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Pours copper with small white head. Aroma is candy, burnt and tutti fruiti. Sweet palate. Aftertaste is sweet candy and some spicy rum. Overall: A synthetic candy beer. Mix between alcopop and beer.
