COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The crystal malt, Fuggle and Golding hops provide a good foundation for this full bodied beer. It has a gentle rum aroma and a rich, smooth flavour, thanks to the dark unrefined sugar. The addition of Carribean rum adds another degree of subtle complexity.

Rum? I donít get it. This is just a typical flat ale. I guess there are 13 in dozen of these when you buy beers from average supermarket in UK. Perhaps the rum was drank by people who made the label, who knows. Advertising and reality does not meet, thatís the problem.

sic1314 (3470) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2013
Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy, disappearing head. Aroma of sweet malt, nuts and a very mute alcohol hint in the background. Very weak, watery body, flavour is some sweet caramel malt with the nuttyness, a slight burn in the aftertaste.

Stepped on a throwing star with my bare foot this morning.

Golden ale that loses its head fast. Fairly ordinary with a dominant bitter character, but with a sweet nose and a slight spiciness in its flavour, which probably accounts for the name, but there are no obvious rum elements.

martinrumsam (537) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle pours copper brown with good white lasting and lacing head. Aroma is malty and a hint of oak semi sweet malty taste with a touch of hop bitterness to close. I would never have known there was any rum there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
