The 1st Beer of Christmas
On a bit of a budget this year.
Bear with me here it gets better. Every year the twelve beers are always a bit of a challenge, this year I have a bit less time and a baby to look after. But any how, here goes.
Those that know Greene King's Old Speckled Hen will know it for its rounded sweet fruit and caramel-toffee like malt front. Interestingly here the combination of more carbonation and cold serving temperature seems to counter the syrupy sticky sweet nature of the beer. All in all nothing fancy here, but if offered one again I wouldn't turn it down.
