Old Speckled Hen

A distinctive rich malty taste bursting with toffee character, fruity aroma and deliciously smooth.

Auburn and copper on the eye; malty, toffee notes on the nose; and then a further lovely helping of malt in the taste, with distinctive hints of caramel balanced by a touch of fruit. As English as English can be.

The secret to its success? Crystal and pale malts first and foremost, plus our Master Brewer’s blend of Challenger, Pilgrim, First Gold and Goldings hops.

Tasting Notes
A high proportion of Crystal malt in Old Speckled Hen provides the key toffee/caramel flavor. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character – estery or banana/pear drop. This estery note provides the fruity and refreshing balance. The hops used add a palate cleansing herbal note and very slight orange citrus. A very malty, full bodied and warming ale.
