We salute 100 years of naval aviation dedicated to the unswerving courage of the crews of the Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers, which were launched from aircraft carriers during the Second World War to attack the enemy battle cruisers Bismark, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, risking their lives against impossible odds.

Bottle at home - legacy rating. Pours clear amber with a minimal off-white head. Aroma caramel, bread dough, dates, some plums and brandy. Rather rich on the palate.

500ml bottle from the brewer at Cheltenham Food and Drink festival. Pours a reddish brown with a medium white head. Grainy aroma, rum comes through a bit. Very sweet to the taste, typical malty flavour, rum comes through in the finish.

Gift from my better half - thanks :) Appearance: medium white head which disappears quickly, dark amber/red colour, clear, fair lacing. Aroma: grain, coffee, nails, cardboard. Taste: sweet with a bit of roast and coffee. Palate: medium body, medium bitter finish, flat. Overall: not well balanced, not great aroma, average beer.

LazyPyro (594) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown/red/copper colour, creamy off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is mostly malt... caramel, maybe a very slight hint of rum, but if the bottle hadnít have said so I donít think Iíd know there was any. Same can be said for the taste, a pleasant malty flavour, any rum there is too subtle, maybe thatís a good thing... Overall itís a nice beer but I was expecting something a little more interesting.

Lovely clear auburn colour, with a frothy off-white head, though this has soon gone. Medium bodied. Little aroma, and the rum balances out the sweetness quite nicely. Good.

Pours with a tight creamy head. Barely noticeable caramel aroma. Bland taste with a soft Oak on the finish, I love Rum and I love Beer, but I donít like Rummy Beer.

Bottle from B&M. Pours amber with a cream froth. Quite fruity with acitrus and caramel malt. A bit bland, but OK.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2014
Small, dense amberish cream head over totally clear reddish copper beer. Rich caramel & toffee nose, hint at diacetyl, shortbread. Toffee, but seriously watered down, and with an agreeable hoppy/parsleylike flavour, suggesting freshness. Leafy too, no doubt again the coloured malts talking. Diacetyl is fairly imperceptible in the mouth, if not completely gone. Toffee remains in the aftertaste for a while, but in the very end, only a harsh bitterness, dissolved in water remains. Feels better carbonated than it looks; light body, but very slick. It might not be real ale, itís far from bad all the same - exception made for the poor aftertaste.

Mild caramel rum aromas. smooth buttery rich body. Gentle sweetness but a sharply alcoholish after taste. Apparently no relation to the 2001 thriller with Hugh jackman and John travolta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
