New beer introduced in Aug 2006 to replace the original 5.2% Morland Old Speckled Hen.
Itís rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Rozemalt (2) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016 does not count
Bottle 50cl, bittere nasmaak, helder en oranjebruine kleur, ijzerachtig en droog in de mond, niet een biertje dat makkelijk wegdrinkt.

Magela (124) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 27, 2016
A good beer. Has nothing to get too exited about. It has a well balanced aroma of caramel and hops. Itís taste is a combination of malts, hop and caramel. All of it light in concentratio and complementing eachother.

Good colour, thick head, on tap, darker colour, a bit of iron in taste, medium bitter. Not enough taste of beer and too much "watery" taste

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Cask at Durham Castle Undercroft Bar, £2/pint. Brownish amber beer with a fair sized, off-white head. Itís so sugary and has the candied, floral sweetness that seems to run through many GK beers. Thereís biscuity, toffee flavours pleasant that are pleasant enough but on the whole itís too sweet to be a really good bitter.

Holmen2 (2636) - NORWAY - DEC 1, 2015
Backlog. From cask at Prince of Wales, Aberdeen, 04.08.12. Copper in colour with off-white head. Superb aroma of caramel and toffee. Round moutfield, with bitterness, hops, sweetness and caramel balancing perfectly. Served at the temperature such an excellent ale deserves to be served at. Significantly better than the keg version. Slightly bitter aftertaste balancing the sweetness of the middletaste. Sublime, excellent, fantastic, gorgeous. Worth the travel to UK on its own.
