Old Speckled Hen is popular with ale drinkers up and down the country and renowned for its unique character and consistent quality.

The great British ale was first brewed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. It was even named after the factory’s old run around car which was often parked outside the paint shop. Spattered in paint, the car became known as the “Owld Speckl’d Un”. The eagle-eyed might even see the resemblance between MG’s logo and the Old Speckled Hen label!

More than 35 years on, the great premium ale continues to be a finely balanced beer with a distinctive rich, malty taste and fruity aroma.

All's well that ends well ...

Everything was fine at the end of the day - my delivery was split over 2 days even though my original message from the couriers said it would all be delivered together. This made for a wee bit of hassle, though it is something I have come to expect nowadays, whoever the supplier and whichever the courier. As I say, it all ended very well and I am now stocked up and enjoying very fine Greene King Ales again. Greene King Ales simply cannot be bettered and so I shall keep returning for more stock to keep my "cellar" topped up. Definitely worth 5 Stars*****

QUALITY BEER

I thought that this beer is a superb drink. Some beers suffer when they are in a can but not this. Total quality.

A great beer that is really enjoyable.

I have been searching for old golden hen in Scottish supermarkets for a while without success, when I saw I could order it on line by the case it certainly gave me a an expectant feeling. I look forward to a couple of cans each evening and I’m never disappointed.

Greene King Online Shop

The web site was very easy to use in finding the beer I wanted. The ordering process and payment procedure was simple and easy to do with instant e-mail confirmation. I ordered on Thursday and received the beer early the following morning via DHL, who kept me informed of my delivery progress via text message. The overall service I experienced was faultless and therefore have no hesitation in recommending Greene King on-line shopping. I have ordered my favourite canned beer direct from Greene King on previous occasions and will continue to do so. A brilliant all-round service.
