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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle, Bronze with a small head, Unusual slightly malty taste which might be the added rum. For some reason I didnít expect a lot from this one and was therfore pleasantly surprised.
