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.
