Bright golden color, medium fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast and white pepper. Taste is vanilla, straw in an odd combination.

Transparent gold, thin silly white head. Dusty nose, grainy, lemon, and some celery. Flavor is dusty, sweet, light grass, and more of the heavy citrus. No evidence of rum, no spice or yeast, simple, and standard. Passes for a watery blonde in every way.

Bottled 330ml. -from Brasserie Henry, Budapest.
Slightly cloudy yellow coloured, medium sized white head, interesting flowery and mild spicy nose interrupted by four idiots behind me smoking cigars. Mild fruity, slight alcoholic and subdued rum taste with pleasant spicy notes. Not bad at all, nice surprise.

BlackEyePA (573) - USA - JAN 24, 2011
Not too bad. I t leaves a weird aftertaste, probably from the rum and beer combo. Its got a good flavor, but the aroma is decent but lacking a real smell, just a hint of citron and beer. color is decent, pale gold. Overall not to shabby

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and tall foamy head. Discreet aroma: yeasty and citric fruity with a floral touch. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a sparkling carbonation. Pale malt character with yeasty and citric notes, as well as alcohol shining through; sweet and slightly sticky alcoholic finish. Rather undemanding. 04.I.11

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2010
0,33 l bottle, Belga Sörök Háza, Budapest.
Poured clear pale yellow with a stable froathy white head. A beer with a nice blond-ale character and with a massive artifical sweetener-aroma profile. No thanks. Wrong, very sweet way of development - in my opinion.

tderoeck (4684) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2010
25/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ horeca expo 2010

Clear bright yellow to somewhat golden beer, big creamy head, dissipates fast. Little adhesive. Aroma: very faint, mainly sweet, some alcohol and some spices (probably from the rum). MF: ok carbon, light to medium body, watery to syrupy texture. Taste: a sh*tload of sugar, some sweet malts. Aftertaste: more of the same: sweet, then some spices and in the back of the throat some alcohol. I don’t think it’s the rums fault this beer sucks. It wouldn’t be very good without the rum either.
