This is the first time I've tried the old speckled 'un since GK closed the Abingdon brewery and transferred the brewing to St. Edmundsbury.

It was bland when Morlands brewed it, it's bland now (although it was just slightly better when I had it on cask in Oxford a dozen years ago).

If offered the choice (as I was) between the Hen and Stella, I'd choose the Hen any day. However, give me just about any Brit import or most NA microbrews.
