WHAT: Old Speckled Hen Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Suffolk, England
WHY: Look, nobody’s suggesting you try to drive a chicken. This nuanced, toasty, hoppy, full-flavoured ale is named after an “unusual speckled MG car.” Since it’s an English ale, treat it like a vintage car and let it warm up a bit before you start. The four-pack of cans gets you the best mileage per dollar.
PRICE: 4 x 500ml/$9.70
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #563601) and the Beer Store
