Old Speckled Hen – Moreland Brewery (ENG)

Old Speckled Hen is a much-respected English pale ale from the Greene King stable. Brewed in Bury St Edmunds by Moreland,  it’s available throughout much of the UK and now, I’m happy to say, in Australia and 46 other countries too

This is a beautiful bronze ale, sweet and malty on the nose. It’s very smooth with hints of flap jack and toffee-apple. Like most beers, it would be better from a cask but I’m not complaining. A fine example of a Great British beer. I had mine with slow-cooked beef with roasted pumpkin, runner beans and mash and I wished I’d bought a couple more.
