I've had several from this series and this by far is the best of all, by like seriously far...

Full Disclosure: As a latino I am partial to rum. It is the spirit of the Caribbean and the drink we all have grown up with, from well, frankly, childhood. That said, I have until now never found a cream ale I have liked. From the wording alone you would think this would be an easy thing to do - find a cream ale to simply enjoy and do so many times over. But no. Until today, I did not think this brew, a so-called cream ale, would actually ever taste good. But no. I found one that does and does so in spectacular fashion. From the vibrant and rich copper colored drink to the sweet scent of rum, to the creamy and full-bodied mouthfeel. This is truly something to enjoy, and do so in no hurry. The taste is boozy, rum-flavored, sweet, yet balanced by malt - it's about all you can ask for when you mix an ale with rum - and this does it expertly. Quite possibly the best beer I have had in 2020, to date, and certainly the best cream ale I have ever had, hands down.
