COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010.
Its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculier’s fermentation process.

BeerRenter76 (719) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/2/08. Well whoever named this one certainly hit the nail on the head. It poured a dark amber hued body with a thin tan head, fair amount of lacing left. The flavor is a combo of oak, molasses, toasted nuts, and fruit, it is sweet going down but there is a touch of bitterness. A very peculiar beer indeed.

500ml bottle at home. Dark reddish colour with a good tan coloured head. Malty, slightly fruity aroma, malty flavour with soft fruity hints, and a pleasingly bitter finish. Excellent

500ml bottle from Asda. Toffee notes stand out. Initial sweetness is strong, and met pleasantly with a bitter finish. A very nice beer.

Cimbasso (696) - - MAR 7, 2016
From a bottle with a newly-designed label- it is now called 'Old Peculier - The Legend'. Dark brown with a tan head. Full-flavoured with a taste of toffee and dried fruit. Pleasant bitter finish. A classic beer with a well-balanced and satisfying taste.

tricksta_p (3255) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle in England. Aroma is lots of malt, caramel, toffee, buttery, dried fruity notes, some apple. Flavour is medium sweet. Body is medium. Not too impressed with this one.

Biroholik (771) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Kolor : Cimny brąz. Trochę ciemniejszy od coca-coli. Fantastyczne rubinowe refleksy. Dobrze opalizujące.
Piana: Beżowa, drobne oraz średnie oczka. Bardzo dobre krążkowanie na szkle. Wąska obrączka do samego końca pływa na powierzchni.
Zapach : Karmelowy, aromat świeżo upieczonego chleba, ciemne owoce.
Smak: W smaku wyraźnie słodowe. Smaczne akcenty ciemnych owoców występują dopiero po ogrzaniu. Z owoców można wyróżnić : ciemne winogrona oraz bezdyskusyjnie śliwkę. Na drugim biegunie wiśnie oraz jagody. Bardzo przyjemna subtelna kwaskowość na finiszu. Goryczka niska o owocowym zabarwieniu.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Theakston Brewery jest jednym z najstarszych browarów w UK. Jest także drugim największym rodzinnym browararem po Shepherd Neame. Old Peculier to znak firmowy tego browaru. Warzony pod tą nazwą od 1890 roku. Piwo jest bardzo dobrze zbalansowane. Słodowy profil , karmel, toffi i ciemne owoce wszystko to się bardzo dobrze komponuje i uzupełnia ze średnią, owocową goryczką. Bardzo dobra pozycja prosto z angielskiego Tesco. Klasyczny przedstawiciel stylu Old Ale.
