War Horse The Big Broadcast Double IPA
I'm not a connoisseur and can't describe this DIPA with the specificity and nuance of the usual reviewers here, but I had a pint can of this beer tonight and really enjoyed it. Reminded me of another favorite,Six Point Resin. Smooth easy drinking complex flavor presentation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s not "good" either. The feel is prickly and very carbonated. It’s not a bad beer, and better than macrocrap, but it’s really below average.

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

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.
