It’s a popular classic. Any ale fan has had a pint of Old Peculiar in their time.
It’s not often you get a drink describing itself as both rich and mellow, but this one somehow pulls it off. It goes down easily, while still giving every one of your taste buds a treat. Though it’s certainly not the fruitiest of tastes, nor the most refreshing.
I do find there’s something about full bodied ales that makes you feel like you’re having a proper drink, a little extra satisfaction after a hard day.
Old Peculier is nothing spectacular, but you can always rely on it to do the job.
