Cask, Sun Inn Pooley Bridge. My favourite old ale. Dark with a light creamy head that clings to the glass to the finish. Licorice, caramel, coffee taste with a smooth finish. Great in winter in front of a log fire, but I can also drink year round. Excellent.

Cask gravity at White Horse. It pours deep ruby with a small beige. The nose is berry, jammy, toast, juicy, caramel and Vimto. The taste is wood, tangy, red berry, toast, roasty, juicy fruit, jam and dark fruit with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A big improvement on the bottled version. Tasty.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque chocolate brown. Light aroma of forest fruit malt. Not overly great taste, full but simple. Sweet with a token bitterness. Decent but by no means outstanding strong bitter.
