2011 vintage 750ml pours a murky orange with no head. Nose of honey, candy, mild booze, pineapple upside down. Flavor has caramel, booze, honey, melon, more pineapple upside down. Finishes smooth if not a touch sweet. katrinaez (2454) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2017
Perfect golden with light orange touch color. Boozy aroma, but not too much. Rum and oak is great. Slight raisin scent also. Palate is sugary and holds to the tongue and cheeks. Some bread and boozy taste. Bottle Luvystypotables (2135) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2016

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.

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. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange with a small bubbly white head. Aroma was initially oxidized, hints of rum, oak, vanilla, citrus and spicy yeast notes. Flavor of citrus, light oxidation, light rum, vanilla, oak. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2014
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.
