COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Ingredients: Pipkin pale malt; Crystal malt; brewers sugar; Bittering hops: Challenger; Aroma hops: Goldings and Challenger; Morland yeast.
New beer introduced in Aug 2006 to replace the original 5.2% Morland Old Speckled Hen.
It’s 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.

The_Osprey (8442) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Morland Old Speckled Hen, 4.5%. Dark amber orange, clear and still with a dense creamy beige head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is airy, light toffee and biscuit. Body is pretty smooth, slightly frothy, soft carbonation. Taste is biscuity, soggy wholemeal bread, traditional British hop tang with a little apple and wood shavings. Touch nutty. Good condition. Possible involvement of a sparkler though. A tasty malty beer. I can see why it's popular. (5-4-6-4-13=3.2)

Cask at the Farmhouse, Kesgrave. Backlog rating from historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating. Better than bottled version.

as with most casked variants of british real ale, the only thing this offers over the bottled or canned variety is a creamy addition to the consistency and a smoothness on the palate. old speckled's body flavours of fruit and nuts can be more noticeable here, as the hoppy aftertaste is somewhat lesser prominent than the bottled variety. however, i have never had the experience of trying this brew in a can.

BeardedAvenger (950) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Cask at the Wyvern, Church Crookham. Negligible sweet and malty aroma. Light chestnut. Good creamy head. Sweet bitter hints. Light and soft bodied. Middling finish, However it is totally bland. The taste is just lacking.

Mortlach (2435) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 16, 2017
Cask @Le Bon Bock (Rome). Ambrata carica con schiuma pannosa morbida abbondante e molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, caramella mou, nocciola, lievi note erbacee e di mela verde. In bocca è morbida ed equilibrata all’Inglese, attacco maltato dolce con finale appena amaro. Corpo leggero, watery, carbonazione soft. Si beve.

Clear amber, off white head. Light malty aroma. Flavour is light malt, some sour fruit, a bit of hop. It’s pretty watery. Meh.

Draft at Earl Haig. Murky amber pour with small, sparse creamy head. General malty character, bready notes. Creamy consistency. Another drinkable but forgettable bitter.
