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!

Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Poured and opaque reddish orange with a large white head. Aroma was a tad metallic and tasted malty (which I like). This is a decent English Ale, not super bitter, and has the makings for a long night if one had six more of these. Nothing great...but would never say no.

Sjohnh (837) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Medium brown colour with red tint. Decent white head leaving some lacing. Medium body, low carb. Flavours of water biscuits, toffee and red apple. Balance isn’t great.

Davros IX (19) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
A typical strong bitter, but with a pungent flavour of yeast from the bottle conditioning. It was an enjoyable pint, but it didn’t have the smoothness that we are now getting with the modern ESBs.

uckelman (712) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Pours hazy copper colored. Thick cream colored head, small bubbles. Aroma of hay, cut grass. Very sweet and alcoholic right on the front. Has some biscuity flavors, along with raisins. Acidic.

sarauckelman (464) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Hazy red brown with small tan head. Malty aroma of crackers. Strong malty/sort of sweet flavor right at the front and a real kick of alcohol. Definitely unusual. Finishes strongly with a bit of burn.

matstrange (143) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Wow, what a hit of malt. Satisfyingly caramel flavours linger on the tongue. Packs a mean punch at 6.5% too. Rare as a hens tooth but worth a buy!

Hullaledrinker (24) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Normally like all Moreland ale but was disappointed with Hen’s tooth. Brewed by Greene King I thought it tasted closer to a Greene King type ale then a Moreland, The ale is strong but lacked character to me, found it very average & forgettable, much prefer an Old Speckled Hen any day of the week to this.
