COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Pipkin pale malt, Crystal malt and maltose syrup. Challenger and Goldings hops. Morland’s original yeast.
A quite unique, strong, bottle-conditioned ale with an original gravity of 1059, full of flavour and character with a richly malted aroma and a nice, smooth finish. From a blend of Pale Ale and Crystal malts, this is a rich and satisfying beer with good presentation. A strongish beer in terms of alcohol, but there’s no bite from this Hen’s Tooth!

Towey1989 (4779) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2019 Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of bready malts, fruit, some toasted grain, slight yeast, a hint of nuts, caramel, ginger and subtle spicy hops. Taste of bready malts, toasted grain, slight nuts, caramel, fruit and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, spicy fruit and toasted malt bitterness in the finish. Expecting a lot worse to be honest. Very malty, traditional, sweet on the tongue. Then some English hops, spice and fruits. Not bad actually.

Piana obfita o średnich i dużych oczkach, utrzymuje sie. Kolor klarowny bursztyn. Aromat słodowy owocowy przyjemny. Smak uderza wysokie nasycenie i żelazo. Jest słodowośc karmel, lekko owocowe. Klasyczne angielskie ALE z średnią do wysokiej goryczką lekko wyczuwalnym alkoholem. Przyjemne dobre. Ciekawe, warto spróbować choć zachwytów nie ma.

NotABeerFan (108) - GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2017
Very nice strong ale. Pours golden caramel with strong cloud, or maybe my glass was dirty. Yates if vanilla and toffee apple with strong malt flavour and a little hop bitter on the end. Not bad, is to Old Speckled Hen what KingGoblin is to Hobgoblin. Essentially the same but stronger.
