Beer Review
By Tim

Old Peculier Today we provide our first beer review from the new Ohio Home Office and official locale of the Second Annual Cider Off. Yes, we are only a few short months away from the next cider off, mark your calendars. In keeping with the odd feeling a person has when they sleep that first night in a new home, I am going to review a peculiar ale. In fact it is called Old Peculier. Old Peculier is imported from England and brewed by T and R Theakston LTD, in Marsham, England. The ale is imported by Scottish and Newcastle Importers in San Francisco, California.

I am sure that you are not surprised that I have chosen another ale to review. I have to admit, this was more by chance than by plan. I really liked the name and it fit into the whole buying a house deal. Buying a house leaves you feeling a little out of your element and peculiar. As far as ale's go this one is definitely different. OP is a dark ale but does not have many of the elements that make me really dislike dark beers. There is a mild coffee like taste but that is it. The drink enters the mouth smooth and leaves just as smooth with only a mild hint of bitterness. It is surprisingly sweet but heavier then the other ale's I have reviewed. The label and package is OK and has a peculiar seal on it, 'The Seal of the Official Of The Peculier Of Masham 1741.' I have no idea what that means and have not been able to locate anything on the web about it, or, this ale for that matter.

Overall I rate this ale 3 BB & B's. Enjoyable but too heavy and dark for me. Warning if you drink it while eating baked tortilla chips OP will have the flavor of Kentucky Bluegrass.

Ranking out of 5 BB&B's.
