    Not too much of the barrel coming through, but plenty of saison tarty funky goodness. Hazy as fuck... Damn cans, cute pic, but can't tell how much crud is on the bottom, and if it's being disturbed by the pour.

    A little late, but I had a Theakston's Old Peculier ON TAP(!) at the Northern Git in thornbury on Sunday.
    An awesome dark ale, and reminded me why I've tried to clone this fecker a few times.
    Much, much better than out of the bottle at Dan murphy's - all the proper depth and flavours are there! "Typical" dark ale - (light) maltiness with a slight roast element, but the caramel and cherry-fruitiness that pops out is fantastic. Makes me wonder if maybe 1469 is the better yeast for a clone of this. A great beer. Need to do another clone one day soon...

    Was up to their usual standard.
    A solid effort.

    My local guy had a quartet of Hobos in his fridge. Never had much luck with anything described as 'session', and even less so with 3.5% IPA's..
    So that left the APA and PA. So I started with the most basic.
    Tasted like it began life as a half decent beer before the dealer cut it by a third with mineral water. 4.2%, balanced, and with a slight citrus waft. For the same coin you could get a slab of far more satisfying LCPA.

    Well, Hobo is owned by a cordial company. I guess they got a bit confused!
