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.

Cimbasso (741) - - 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.

Biroholik (866) - 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.
