Low carbonation and an orangy amber glow can’t disguise how once this hits your lips its deficient structurally. it may be pure and soft but to be so gentle for a beer which is so named is to stretch the point a bit.
Had this on tap as part of a sampler at Henry House in Halifax. It was my favourite of the 4 Granite products in w sampler. I prefer a malty ale to one with a lot of hops & Peculiar hit the spot jksipa (956) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016

On cask tap at The Henry House in Halifax.
Copper body with good clarity topped by a durable, light tan head.
Sweet and roasted grains with faint hops in the aroma.
The flavor follows. A touch more bitter than sweet.
Smooth, near medium body.
Alcohol more obvious than it should be in both the taste and the feel; especially in the taste.
Some toffee up front and again in the aftertaste.

Right out of the bottle (650ml) lots of wet banana bread batter scents. Dark red tea water with a thick grayish off-white head that looks like frothy latte. Some spicy notes and a bit of cloves with a heavy yeasty base in the aroma. Wet or sweet taste and very fruity even dark raisin flavours. Upfront bold high gravity profile balance and refreshing.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark, clear, coppery-mahogany brown with a nicely retaining off-whtite head. Roasty-toasty nose and flavour, sour red berries and nuts, prunes, somewhat citric. Feels more bitter and strong than it actually is. Crisp. Lemon drop kind of finish. It’s quite nice.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small soapy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart, bitter, fruity and had touches of honey and toffee. The flavor was tart, bitter, sour caramel, vague fruits and citrus. Medium length finish. Medium body but a bit flat. Meh.

Pours dark brown with a small diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of light hops and caramel malt. Flavour starts off sweet and ends lightly bitter. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown colour with medium white head. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is same, with some hops. Got 6% ABV for this one. Peculiar (1) - Shipley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014 does not count
Pours clear brown with minimal head. Malt aroma, slightly sweet taste. When poured on tap at the Henry House it is served just slightly chilled - the perfect temperature for this beer. It is one of the most gulpable beers I have had. Two tips of the pint glass is all it takes before round two. cattaneopapa (401) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours an opaque dark brown half finger of white head. Aroma of roasted malts.
Light body with minimal carbonation.
Taste: Roasted malts with notes of hops and a little bit of coffee.
