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. :)

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.
