A truly British beer, I introduce you to Old Peculier by Theakstons. Noted as one of the world’s great beers with it’s smooth, strong and mellow flavour, Old Peculier is nothing short of a beautifully crafted and well thought about beer.
Made in Masham, home of not only Theakstons but @blacksheepbrewery also, Old Peculiar is dark and rich ruby coloured beer with very traditional characteristics. Brewed using Fuggle hops, Old Peculier has a distinctive banana and blackcherry aroma to it, with a complimentary taste of banana, chocolate and toffee with a tannic bitterness similar to that found in red wine.
To be honest, it’s not really a beer that has ever been on my beer list but it seems to have surpassed my expectations by a country mile and a beer that shall now be in my session list! I will certainly by visiting Masham in the near future.
