2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not really outstanding. In fact, carmelly, molten shit. But real ale shit all the same. Touches the tounge nicely, good consistency, but the rest is like dung. Henglar’s Circus (JD Wetherspoon’s pub), Glasgow.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 May, 2003: The Auctioneer, Blackpool. Getting toward the end of the Blackpool Rocks weekend. Rusty honey with Cornish vanilla ice-cream followed by raspberries dipped in buttery caramel. A little hop fragrance rubbed around the edges of the mouth. [3.0]
July 2004: Adam & Eve, Petty France, London. Similar musty, oaky caramel tones to the Old Peculier we had earlier. Metallic finish. Twiggy. Licorice. Sarsaparilla. Slightly prefer the Peculier - but it’s very slight. Every time I have this Cally 80/- I am more impressed. [3.4]
Feb, 2008 The Barony, Edinburgh. Malty amber dark beer with a metal sharp note leading into a muted bitterness. Drinkable, but not entirely clean. [2.6]
Burns Night, 2012 JDW, Rochester. Yeasty, sulphur aroma. Sweetish malty flavour - yeasty finish. Few hops - mostly late and lingering. An enjoyable gulp with haggis, neeps & tatties. [3.3]
