My favourite best-ever English ale. Not for everyday drink, but reserved for the finer moments in life. I found this in Argentina at a pub in Buenos Aires where my friend was working. They were trying to introduce it into the South American market. Also had it in 2 pubs in New York City. At Sainsburys around the after-holidays you can get two bottles of OSH with a nice Old Speckled Hen Pilsner glass for a fiver. BOOOOOONNNNGGGGGG!

Excellent beer! Very flavorful. If you have a chance to try this one, do try it and you will not be sorry.

A beautiful amber bitter with full creamy head. Very smooth drinking and full cream and chocolate flavor, absolutely delicious.
