Old Speckled Hen 4.5%

Born in 1979 to celebrate 50 years of MG cars and named after the motorworks run-around. This 4.5% amber ale has great toffee and caramel aroma and is perfect with food.

in more detail

A high proportion of crystal malt in Old Speckled Hen provides the key toffee/caramel flavour. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character - estery or banana/pear drop.
