"The Legend". Brewed using a generous blend of finest pale, crystal and roasted barley malts, along with the majestic Fuggle hop, to create a wonderful, full-bodied flavour with subtle banana, cherry and rich fruit overtones.

A peculier tale:
Theakston’s most famous ale takes its name from the seal of the Peculier Court of Masham, which was granted back in the 12th century. It was the custom at the time for the church to administer the law, but this proved too arduous a task for the then Archbishop, who was based in York. So, with due archiepiscopal aplomb, he set up the independent Peculier Court, headed up by the Peculier of Masham.

Prakticky tady přidávám tento komentář, jen aby tady něco bylo, protože zpětně dopisuji 900 piv z mého seznamu a asi bych se musel u toho zbláznit.

Bottle - dark, with red tinge and decent tan head. Decent fruity berry aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth. Different tasting - berries with strong aftertaste.

From Morrison, Feel quite strong alcohol 모리슨에서 구매, 소맥맛나는 맥주. 뒷맛이 깔끔하다! 바디감은 가벼운 편

From bottle. Small off-white head, dark brown/ruby colour, fair lacing. Aroma: roasted malts, roasted bread, grain. Lightly acidic with bitter aftertaste. Medium body, long finish, soft carbonation. Quite nice, smooth and balanced.

Love this beer. Just had it for the first time in a visit with my family in England and couldn’t get enough!!

500ml bottle into shaker glass. Pours a mahogany red with a frothy cream-coloured head. Nice lacing. Slight smell of grain and malt.. Flat smooth mouthfeel. Notes of banana and aniseed. Finish is slightly sour grain. Pleasant old-fashioned sipper.

Wonderful and full-bodied flavour!!! Intense fruity smell and a really good persistence... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is black with a red tinge to an extent no carbonation really. Smell is of dark fruits and brown sugar, may be a hint of vanilla. Taste is sweet, a lot of dark fruit and sugar again, it's sweet but not in a caramel way. Must be the brown sugar in itself. A good beer and worth a try. I personally think Black Sheep Riggwelter is better but this is a good beer

Still a nice ale, but I have a long memory of when I first tried it, from a counter mounted wooden cask, at the Norfolk Arms in Arundel, in 1976. Then, it was a more powerful brew at 6.3% with a little more body. First taste, I was hooked!

From a bottle it is clear dark Amber color with a thin tan head. The Aroma is sweet malts and the taste is sweet flavor of banana Light bodied and tasty.
