A high proportion of Crystal malt in Old Speckled Hen provides the key toffee/caramel flavour. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character – estery or banana/pear drop. This estery note provides the fruity and refreshing balance. The hops used add a palate cleansing herbal note and very slight orange citrus. A very malty, full bodied and warming ale.

Perfectly complements tasteful, quality British foods, premium pies, gravies, sausages and weekend BBQ’s. Works perfectly with Sticky Toffee Pudding too!
