Granite Brewery-Peculiar

 Another Granite Brwery offering, Peculiar, is a nice brown ale that contains 5.6% alcohol. I enjoyed a pint at the brewpub. The beer had a hazy, ruddy brown colour, with a loose, off-white head that fades quickly.

There was a faint aroma that was sweet with molasses notes. Peculiar had a rich, well-balanced, and nuanced flavour. It moves from malty to bitter, and is toasty, nutty, and a touch smoky. The mouthfeel is pretty thin. The aftertaste is nicely bitter.

This was a really solid beer that I would love to try again. I have a feeling that if I lived closer to the Granite, this'd be a go-to brew. It had an interesting, solid flavour and is definitely worth tracking down.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
