500ml bottle . in a Sam Smiths pint . drank@ room temp just like the bottle guides and suggests . A truly english expereince ..the aroma isn’t just notes of butterscotch and dusty yeast- it hollas something precious that i’d miss if or when i reside in the usa ,cricket on the village green sensibility . This beers aroma says ’I’m a straighforward english ale -i still have a worthy place in this sometimes bloated craft beer world’. I get a little rum flavour here and there , but it is mild or subtle . This beer is perfecly decent Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney- sourced via Ocado. Pours clear copper with a bubbly off-white head. The nose holds toasted brown bread, English yeast, some crackers, hay. Light-medium sweet with more toasted malts, faint toffee, suggestions of citrus, orange, melon, light bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, with more lightly toasted bread, semi-ripe citrus fruits, orange rind, British yeast. I find this really enjoyable. wheresthepath (2334) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle from the brewer’s own stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Amber, thin and fizzy. Biscuitty malts and not much else. Very much the poor relation of the cask version- you’d hardly know it as the same beer. Still drinkable though, but the pasteurization has not done it any favours. rauchbier (3891) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle, from Tesco, Marlborough. Deep red brown, thin but lasting off white head and moderate condition. Fruity malt and a woody earthiness in the nose with a muted spirity note. Quite malty in the mouth with hints of toast and burnt sugar, some fruity woodiness and a little saltiness. Finish has a lingering burnt sugar sweetness and a touch of burnt bitterness and some rum notes. BeerNinjaUK (466) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2016
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. Fullpintofbeer (378) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
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 (1209) - 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 hadn’t have said so I don’t think I’d know there was any. Same can be said for the taste, a pleasant malty flavour, any rum there is too subtle, maybe that’s a good thing... Overall it’s 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. pikeysdoggy (20) - - JUN 8, 2014
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 don’t like Rummy Beer.
