Old Speckled Hen
4.5% ABV - cask and brewery conditioned
5.0% ABV - in bottles and cans

A finely balanced beer with a distinctive rich malty taste and fruity aroma, Old Speckled Hen has attracted many fans, including the fox, who is always on the hunt for his hen!

First brewed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and affectionately named after an old MG car used as a factory runaround, 'the owld speckled un'. This turned into Old Speckled Hen when the beer was unveiled.
