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.
I have enjoyed speckled hen for year's and have now found the different styles, as in golden hen and crafty hen. Each made for different occasions. So one made for every party or BBQ.
