Morland's Old Speckled Hen bitter ale is clear brown, and pours with a little bit of suds that quckly vanishes completely. The aroma is slight, but it reminded me a little bit of pencil erasers. The flavor is a little better than that. A lot more malt than hops, a little apple-butter, a little smoke. And then a synthetic kind of finish that almost put me off it, but not quite. Not too bad. And at 3.5% ABV, you could probably drink this all day long.
