Its not mentioned anywhere on Ratebeer or on http://www.theakstons.co.uk/ ??

Sure you dont mean Theaksons Old Peculier, or as TDA mentioned, Marstons Owd Rodger ?

NO - but will have that recipe too.

I have a friend who used to live in London.
He told me that this beer was the first beer he had every drunk.

Hence my interest in trying to brew a clone one for him.

I think hes probably mixed up :) Unless "old roger" is slang for old peculier over there.

"Theaksons Old Roger" reveals nothing on www.google.com, which is pretty rare for a beer.

I've just looked around and I cant find a clone for Owd Rodger anywhere. It seems like its a pretty standard ESA though. The RB guys mostly note its malty dark fruit aroma, and balanced finish. I'd go for an old peculiar clone with more ale malt, and less darker malts (to bring it up to 7.6%).

Theakstons Old Peculier.

OG1057, ABV 5.7%
A dark, strong beer, Old Peculier is justifiably famous for its rich and complete character, it's sheer strength - and for being a beer with a long history. And please note the strength - Old Peculier is not to be messed with. The message is "handle with care". Available all year round.

Tasting notes: its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculier's fermentation process.

Old Peculier recently took the silver medal in CAMRA's Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2000 competition
Should be in the CAMRA book Brew Real Ales at home.

Anyone got that book ?

Beers,
Doc

Doh. Just read your original post again GMK. I must be going dislexic. Read Old Roger but thought Peculier.

Thanks JWB

What does it taste like.

I am trying to get a couple of books:
"Beer Captured"
"The Brewers Bible"


Any one have a spare copy or can lay their hands on it for me?
