The brewers at Mash here pay homage to the classic rum cocktail Dark & Stormy with a beer mimicking the flavours of the ginger and lime inspired beverage. The base is a golden ale, one they've hit with plenty of fresh ginger and lime before finishing things off with oak chips soaked in rum to add spice and depth.
The ginger and lime flavours take the starring role, so much so, in fact, that at first you might think you've picked up a ginger ale before the lime comes slicing through. Spiced rum flavours are subtle in the background, yet present enough to convince you it's spent time in rum barrels.
Fans of this cocktail are sure to enjoy this beer – just add ice and a wedge of lime and you have your very own beer cocktail. Alternatively, imagine drinking it in a dark, gloomy bar on a stormy night while a sea shanty rings out in the background... Avast, me hearties!
