Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 23/11/12. A ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. A malty Irish ale type beer. A dry and slightly toasty nose. It’s the same in the mouth. It’s dull and really old fashioned.

On cask @ the Haymarket. Pours a dark amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has apples, toffee and a backbone of biscuits. The taste is more grapes and biscuits. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a relatively refreshing finish. Overall, a decent bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The White Hart, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, red-gold with a fine, creamy white head. Tangy leaves in the nose. Light sweet flavor, some toasty dough, plenty of citric and leafy bitterness, light grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Surprsingly sturdy bitterness to finish, with more bready, doughy malts, lots of tangy leaves. Tastes kind of cheap, and it really doesn’t bring me much joy to drink this beer.
