Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma has has almost a tropical rum to it. Not quite Malibu but definitely a sweet mix of booze and island fruits. The taste has a strong boozy flavor. Way too much for the beer. Sorry, not a fan.

ElCapitan22 (299) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with next to no lacing. Smells of toffee and butterscotch. Tastes of spiced rum. A nice drink that definitely reminds you of rum, but not a memorable drink.

Lengthy palate for such a light tasting beer. Lots of boozy alcohol, and I can’t say the rum is special in this context or a particularly beer-friendly spirit. It’s raisiny, plummy, and overpowering. Still, the beer is meant to showcase this technique, and it is successful at showing what golden ale in rum barrels should aspire to be.

solidfunk (5989) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Lots of malt and some boozy perfume like yeast hear. Pours cloudy golden without much head or lacing. Finishes sweet and lightly bitter. Cones together pretty well. Tap at Max’s.

HeadyDE (636) - Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2014
2012 bottle pour..solid pop from cap...light amber caramel color..slight 1/2 finger creamy head rests atop..plenty of carbonation here..nose is interesting with booze, wood, vanilla, and what seems like rum soaked butterscotch..mouthfeel is medium bodied to start with no real alcohol heat at first..taste is smooth and complex and the rum is nicely done here..the alcohol legs return with a warming lingering presence..an enjoyable sipper and another solid barrel offering from EVO..has qualities of various styles in play here..

2013 bottle from Capones. Pale copper with a faint head that fades to nothing. Sweet caramel, rum, mild oak, vanilla, booze, mild carbonation and moderate body, some green apple on the finish with some yeast, more booze and lots of brown sugar, caramel and some toffee.
