Well. This is just like some Desperados-clone, but it takes out the "tequila" taste to replace it by "Rum". Notice the commas. Flat vanilla aroma overall, not very pleasant. It tastes a bit better than Desperados but for some reason, I still prefer the other one. Doesn’t mean a lot anyway. DISAPPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

minutemat (3841) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2016
330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, June 16, courtesy of myself. This was in a beer hamper given to my Belgian father-in-law. Remarkably he didn’t want it, so here it is. Pours clear gold, minimal head. Aroma is sweet, not exactly rum, but some spiced spirit. Taste, again, doesn’t come across as rum-influenced, there is spice, vanilla, Desperados.. overly sweet.. pretty terrible.

imdownthepub (12800) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Bottled, 330ml at Pub Le Mac Carthy, Nancy, France. Yellow straw with short white carbonated head. Sweet to the extreme here with an artificial rum / grape flavour additive, by the taste. I had to go and do this one for the rating, didn’t I?. Awful.

ruigo (2075) - PORTUGAL - MAY 26, 2016
On can. Clear golden colour with a white head. Poor retention. Sugar, lemon and rum in the aroma. Taste is sweet with lemon notes. Overall, can’t call this a beer.

Beerhunter111 (15253) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a huge most good lasting white head. Aroma of watery citrus juice, corn. Taste is sweet, sugary, citrons, no beer!

Bottle at Travelodge. From bottle, seems clear golden. Nose is sweet, some essence of lemon, rum and perfume. Taste is similar, there is rum taste somewhere between these unnatural essences. Very sweet. There was a time when I drank sth similar when out partying but those times are gone.

wheresthepath (2055) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Bottle at O’Neills, Reading. Amber with no head whatsoever and virtually no fizz- almost completely flat, which exacerbates the rather sticky mouthfeel. Very sweet from the off. The rum is obvious, which is fine by me (I like rum) but it’s sweeter than rum; tastes like there’s lots of brown sugar in there too. Unfortunately a cheap-tasting generic pale lager does rear its head occasionally and completely fails to work with the rum. Luckily the cheap lager is almost completely hidden by the rum. A little twist of the lime in the finish is a pleasant surprise. Overall it’s a pretty bad beer in all honesty (if it can even be considered a beer), but I like rum and I like lime and I therefore liked this more than I probably should.

Butelka 330ml. Zlote. Piany prawie brak. Piwo smakowe o lekkim aromacie rumowym. W smaku raczej wytrawne o cierpkim finiszu owocowym. Raczej nie w moim guscie ale skoro zona czestuje....

Koelschtrinker (16252) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
Heller süßlicher Beginn, der an Brause und kurzzeitig auch an Cola erinnert. Süffig, Rumnoten werden zum Ende ersichtlich, in dem die Süße aber beibehalten wird. Kindertrunk.. 8/7/9/6/6/6
