Beer of the Month: Old Speckled Hen
Old Speckled Hen Ale has a deliciously full and smooth toffee malt flavour with a fruity bitterness finish. An all occasion beer.
Old Speckled Hen took its name from an MG car which was used as a runaround for workers in the MG factory. Over years of service, the car became covered in flecks of paint, gaining it acclaim in the town and earned it the nickname “Owld Speckled ‘Un”, translated into Old Speckled Hen for the brown ale first brewed by Morland in 1979 when the brewery was asked by MG to create a commemorative beer for the factory’s 50th anniversary.
