Old Speckled Hen


Old Speckled Hen

The Hen was first brewed to celebrate the 50the anniversary of the MG car factory.

Pours clear and deep amber. But the clear bottle does make me a little wary of skunk. None in the aroma, thankfully. That is rather inviting with toffee and fruit. Very crisp on the tongue. Toffee, apple, some cherries come through before grassy hops and a slightly bitter and dry finish. Goes down nice and smooth. Doesn’t pack a huge punch at 5.3% ABV, but a few of these would put you where you want to be.

Solid beer, this. Easy to drink, tasty enough.

Grade: B
