Drop some thoughts on the beer's attributes (look, smell, taste, feel) plus your overall impression. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Whilst we endeavour to make sure that glass bottles are packed as well as possible we cannot send out replacement for any breakages. More than 40 years on, this unique and distinctive brew continues to be finely balanced with a rich, toffee-malt taste and fruity aroma. Whether you're a fan of traditional English ales or just looking for a delicious, full-flavored beer, Old Speckled Hen is an excellent choice.

Appearance: Clear beer with a thick white head, golden but a little darker than average lager for example. The latest addition to Greene King's range of Hen beers, this limited edition ale is bottle conditioned and brewed with malt, hops, pure water and yeast. Old Speckled Hen is popular with ale drinkers up and down the country and renowned for its unique character and consistent quality. I truly enjoy the bready notes and overall mildness this beer delivers and it's one of the easiest drinking beers I've had. The alcohol by volume of both the canned and bottled versions is 5%, [12] making it a relatively strong, premium ale, however, the cask version was reduced from 5.

Our Old Speckled Hen Style beer will have a full but smooth flavour which makes it very easy to drink. The ten-second adverts, which portray a "crafty fox" seeking out an "elusive hen" and feature the catchphrase "It's different, But it's not a hen", are shown eight times per hour after 9PM on weekdays. Marston’s Pedigree Ale 8 x 500ml The brewers only use natural Burton spring water and traditional varieties of barley and hops (Maris Otter Barley, Fuggles and Goldings hops), rather than less expensive, commercially grown, modern hybrids.The great British ale was first brewed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Please note that the allergens shown as present are those shown on the supplier’s packaging and do not refer to allergens that may be present in the same production environment. Within a few years, Morland began to re-explore ale production, reviving Old Speckled Hen and launching the draught version in 1990 with considerable success, with Old Speckled Hen proving to be a beer that Morland could market outside their own estate.

Since 2000, when Greene King bought Morland and closed down the Abingdon brewery, it has been made in Greene King's Bury St Edmunds brewery. From the IPA’s that were created to travel the seas to British colonies, to the porters enjoyed by 19th century transportation workers of London, it’s clear that England has a diverse history of beer production. What had been produced as a one-off celebration brew, proved so popular that a second batch had to be brewed in time for the main celebrations which were to be held in Abingdon over the weekend of the actual anniversary.Upon acquiring Morland, Greene King almost immediately decided to place emphasis on multi packs, rather than the sale of individual bottles and cans. All sizes and measurements are approximate but we do try to make sure that they are as accurate as possible.

In January 1993, Old Speckled Hen was featured as beer reviewer Michael Jackson's "Beer of the Month" in his regular column for The Independent. Items must be in a new and unused condition, complete with all packaging in the state in which it was delivered. Chemicals: Whilst the kit is complete you will need a good cleaner/steriliser like the Wineworks one.

Brewing Equipment: Many all grain brewers already have a kettle and suitable gas stove for boiling the wort. It is available in more than twenty different countries in bottles, cans and on tap from cask and keg. Black Sheep Ale is a traditional English ale with a unique blend of hops, malts and yeast that have been. Regardless of the flavor, Old Speckled Hen is always brewed to the highest standards, using only the finest ingredients, and remains one of the most popular ales in England today.
