JohnS1704 (12) - SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Last had this Tennents Byres Road over a year ago. Always had a rather unpleasant sour aftertaste much as Old Peculiar has now. This one in Henglers Circus much smoother. Malt still dominates with now a pleasing spice aftertaste. Good stuff especially for under £2.00 (CAMRA voucher). Dangerously quaffable.

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
(draught) pours a hazy amber-ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of straw, apricots and vanilla, with a hint of coconut and pale malts. flavour is mostly caramel and pale malts, with notes of green apple, some popcorn and yeast. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

AshtonMcCobb (3933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
On cask at Alexander Graham Bell. Appearance - dark honey heading into red. Nice head. Nose - not a lot. Some gentle malt. Then toffee finally breaks through. Taste - quite luscious toffee. Then slight malt astringency. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish considering the style. Overall - good but not as good as expected.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Poured deep brown with a dense off white head. Aroma of sweet, dark fruit and heavy malt, treacle sweetness. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, slightly cloying
