Green King – Old Speckled Hen
Brewery : Greene King
Name : Old Speckled Hen
Country : England
Style : Ale
ABV/VOL/ALC : 5%
Note from brewery :
Old Speckled Hen has a full, smooth flavour and is very easy to drink. Its rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty tastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness, followed by a refreshingly dry finish.
Note from the taster :
An old favourite an ale you would got to if you didn’t know or couldn’t find anything else that fancied your tickle.
It was a bit weird to drink the Old Speckled Hen again after a year drinking mainly beers from the USA, New Zealand and Australia where they tend to have “sparkling ale”. I nearly send it back complaining it was flat.
A simple and somewhat boring label but it does looks good.
