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.

Great product, just in the wrong receptacle

I love Golden Hen, it’s a perfect IPA for warmer days and as a regular drink with or without food. I do order regularly from Greene King despite a slightly clunky shop and past problems with payment. This time I ordered cans, which easier to store and easier to hold in my dodgy hands. Imagine my surprise when I received the order in bottles. I’ve asked why but still have no reply. I know, a minor irritation but for me it was very frustrating. I’ll drink it of course, it’s delicious. Love the beer, not so great service delivery.

Why buy bottles?

Lovely beer, served slightly cold. Tastes just as good from cans, as from bottles.

This is one of my favourite beers, lots of hops, great taste and alcohol at 4.1% is just right.
