To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory in Abingdon, this was named after a paint-spattered MG used as the factory run-around. Known affectionately as 'Owld Speckl'd Un', it became 'Old Speckled Hen' when the beer was unveiled. There are fruity notes with toffee and shortbread malt complexity.
Original rich & distinctive fine ale."Old Speckled Hen"...owes its name not to a bird, but to a car, a paint-spattered Featherweight Fabric Saloon. Back in the day, this was the MG factory run-around, fondly referred to as the 'Owld Speckl'd Un' due to its mottled appearance after several years parked under the paint shop. The beer itself was first brewed in 1979 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this iconic factory. Our Master Brewer uses crystal and pale malts with Challenger, Pilgrim, First Gold and Goldings hops to deliver a beautifully malty ale with subtle notes of toffee and fruit. Especially fine with English roasts, sausages and pies. Aroma: Malty, toffee lightly roasted Taste: Abundance of malts and distinctive toffee character
