Old Speckled Hen

Type: Ale

Alcohol: 5.2%

Country: England

I remember seeing this on the shelves of the bigger supermarkets around Denmark for years. I had always meant to try, today seems like a good day since I got it on sale. According to the bottle this beer was brewed to commemorate an event at a car factory. It is a nice amber ale with a strong flavor but it is a nice smooth drink. It has a bit of a bitter aftertaste but not overpowering. I really enjoyed it grilling on a nice day.

“I believe that ‘Old Speckled Hen’ was first brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory. Named after an old MG car which was used as the factory run around, the chaps in the factory would park the old MG Featherweight Fabric Saloon outside the paint shop where it would normally get spattered in paint and so it became known as the ‘Owld Speckl’d Un’
