Terry Symonds, head of RPG Design, designed the new label which was based on the MG Octagon to show the link between MG and Morland. The hops used to make Old Speckled Hen are carefully selected to provide a delicate balance of bitterness and aroma, while the malt gives the beer its rich, full flavor. Please note that the allergens shown as present are those shown on the supplier’s packaging and do not refer to allergens that may be present in the same production environment. Terry and his team were responsible for rebranding bitter as 1711 (the year of Morland's foundation) and best bitter as 'Old Masters' (a nod to George Morland, a renowned artist and painter). It has a rich amber colour and distinct fruity aromas which are complemented by a delicious blend of malty tastes.Typical jobs: hospital/ward nurse, waitressing in a busy restaurant, cleaner, porter, labourer/construction worker, gardener, farm worker. After the MG factory closed in 1980, production declined and Old Speckled Hen was almost exclusively available only in pubs operated by Morland due to financial constraints and a different direction being taken by the brewery, which believed its future lay in the production of lager.
Brewing Equipment: Many all grain brewers already have a kettle and suitable gas stove for boiling the wort. The gluten free beer is brewed with its usual quality ingredients and to its normal recipe, with the reduction in gluten content achieved through an innovation in the brewing process. It is often described as a "well-rounded" beer, with a mild bitterness and a light fruitiness that makes it a popular choice for both casual drinkers and beer connoisseurs.
