Morland Old Speckled Hen


This is the less premium of the Morland’s beers. Old Speckled Hen is a classic beer, and rightly so. It’s got a lovely dark, ruby colour and a cracking head.

Can’t quite pin the taste down. But it is quite sweet and I get some appley tastes (old English apples)

It’s s proper good pint. 500ml is 5.2% so it’s quite strong.


Morland Old Crafty Hen


Picked this up in a bargain 4 for £5 offer, when the bottle alone was £2.80.

Claimed to be a vintage brew, has very vintage look to it, and a mean, crudish taste. Mind you, it is supposed to a premium version of Old Speckled Hen, and is 6.5%

I enjoyed it, but I doubt I would pay full price for it, it wasn’t “that” special.
