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]
