War Horse Royal Kilt Inspector Scottish Ale
A bit chocolaty, with some sort of unusual taste. Very sweet, and very unbalanced even by Scotch standards. Will not try again. Bottle share from Bob.

War Horse Lieutenant Dan IPA
Beautiful orange color, tons of bubbles, big head. Nose is malty, with a chlorine aroma. Pleasant and a little flowery. Taste is middling: musty ginger, the hop is a bittering sort. Itís not unpleasant, but itís not "good" either. The feel is prickly and very carbonated. Itís not a bad beer, and better than macrocrap, but itís really below average.

Pours clear brown with minimal foamy off white head. Aroma sweet and damp leaves. Flavor malty sweet and a bit medicinal. Overly off taste in finish. Not a big fan.

Nice and malty like it should be. A dark amber with a thin head. The aroma is earthy with caramel and oak, a hint of vanilla. The flavor is malty smooth with the caramel and oak. Nicely done

War Horse Raspberry Wheat Ale
651 ml. bottle. Shared with multiple others at brew club. Pours a thin poorly retained white head over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light raspberry, wheat....taste is raspberry, strong clove, slightly sweet throughout....mouth feel light, carbonation low. This is quite spice heavy, with light raspberry, hints of wheat. It did not taste infected, so the clove must have been the raspberry. BJCP 7/2/12/4/5

War Horse Peace Bomber Riesling Ale
pours like a typical malt beverage. The aroma smells like stale wine. Taste is of hay herbs spices and stale white wine. The mouth feel is thin and this beer finishes with dry notes. Overall not good! I had a hard time choking down the sample.

War Horse Gunny Mac American Black Lager
This is a middle of the road black lager. It pours nice with a creamy head. Aroma is of coffee and brown sugar. Taste is smooth crisp and bland neither the malts nor the hops really shine through. Some subtle chocolate notes and molasses are present. This beer seems to be marketed for the masses.

War Horse Royal Kilt Inspector Scottish Ale
On tap at 2013 CB Autumn Festival of Ales. Pours a nice amber as I expected a wee heavy to be, with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, raisin and a touch of smoke and roasted barley. Flavor has some sugary sweetness, candied friuts, raisin and light caramel malts. Finish is slightly sweet and somewhat smooth with a malty body.

War Horse Lieutenant Dan IPA
Bottle. Amber range pour with tan head. Aroma is of herbal to almost skunk like notes, toasted and other bready malts. Herbal, earthy and grassy flavors were once more prominent, hops have become more of an afterthought and malts almost take over.

War Horse German Lager
Appearance: Lightly hazed, and infused with some very fine particulate matter, orange-golden body. Medium-small, near white head. Smell: Malts hinting of bread and biscuits paired with a pat or two of unsalted butter. Faint sweetish toffee, honey hints. Very minute notes of apple and light herbs. Taste: Modestly malty with some vague biscuity, bready notes and a sweetness akin to toffee and honey. Then, the Peace Bomber bombardier releases a salvo of buttery diacetyl. Low hop character, bitterness. Dry finish with a taste of butter-brushed biscuit tops. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Overall: It needs some work.

2012-08-18. Black body with a small tan head that fades. 3+ Dry dusty malt aroma with a light ve3getal touch. 6+ flavour is similar, dry dusty malt, light bitterness. Just okay, the malt profile is too dry and roasty for me, Iíd like to see a bit more sweet malt to support it. Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012

From a growler Brian picked up at the brewery. This stuff is awesome. Dark roasted notes in the nose along with coffee. Palate is rich and well balanced. Simple but great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle. Pours a nearly pitch-black with a coffee-colored head. Smells strongly of chocolate and tastes like it too. Iím really impressed with this - a bit thin and one-dimensional with the hard-hitting chocolate flavor, but itís really good.

War Horse Gunny Mac American Black Lager
(bottle - 22 oz) Deep chestnut brown pour with a thin but lasting tan head. Very mild coffee and roasted malt aroma with a subtle nutty hint at the end. A touch of chocolate malts as well. Roasted malt and chocolate combine in the flavor and are balanced rather well. Some mild sweet notes on the aftertaste. A bit thin-bodied but pretty tasty.

War Horse Peace Bomber Riesling Ale
A fine melding between the beer and wine this brewery offers. Taste is sweet, very wine like, and fruity. Easy drinker, I enjoyed this one with each sip. Cloudy oragnge haze color, no lasting head, and light carbination make this brew quite similar to a crisp white wine. It almost a hybrid of a new breed. With each tilt to the nose I am hit with grapes, white wine, tart apples and fresh cider. Great beer.

My wife wanted to go checkout some wineries, so I chose 3 brothers because War Horse is at the same location. This is pale amber in color with a thin white head. Some hops in aroma. Flavor also has some hops smotthed by the little amount of malt.

2010 Autumn Festival of Ales - Standard looking pour with avg. head. Wow, lots of hops in aroma. Some malt backbone to this, but lots of hops in the flavor with a bitter ending.

One word: coffee. Not my kind of beer, the very dark coffee taste is the centerpiece of this.

By far the best War Horse has to offer. Nice and thick with a long head, this IPA does not disappoint. While certainly not the most hoppy, it has a great smoky taste and is loaded with Cascade hops.

Tried at the brewery, it is very fizzy and has a nice grape aroma. However I couldnít taste much Riesling. This ended up being a very mediocre wheat beer, nothing special.

Dark brown and clear with a quickly disappating light brown head. Roasted malt, caramel, and nutty aromas. Hoppy bitterness upfront and on the finish. Not bad. Actually better than I expected.
