Yeah I know, Thirsty Friday doesn’t work quite so well, but I had to share this one with you. Saw this in the shop yesterday and couldn’t resist. After all I like beer and I like rum (yes, I do like Pina Colada’s…) so what’s not to like about rum flavoured beer? Not only that, it’s got a scary skull on the bottle and it’s halloween time… perfect (‘cept I couldn’t wait for actual halloween to drink it..and I generally don’t approve of halloween – yes, I’m a grumpy old biddy).
Anyhoo, as you can see I have now sampled a bottle and can give you my results:
Meh. Yeah, it’s ok.
It has a somewhat honey’d rum flavour – a bit sweet. Personally, I’d rather have a nice pint of real ale by a log fire in a traditional English pub, or an iced lager on a summer’s day, or even better, a big ol’ rum cocktail whilst watching the sunset from a soft sanded Caribbean beach.
But hey ho, it was quite nice to down a bottle while being diverted by the new series of Big Bang Theory last night (yay, it’s back!).
Have a good weekend! 🙂
I have found that most “flavored” beers just don’t hit the mark for me. They usually sound like they’ll be good but then…..not so much.
Yes I think you’re right! Can’t go wrong with a good honest pint of the bet nectar!!
