A high proportion of Crystal malt in Old Speckled Hen provides the key toffee/caramel flavour. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character – estery or banana/pear drop. This estery note provides the fruity and refreshing balance. The hops used add a palate cleansing herbal note and very slight orange citrus. A very malty, full bodied and warming ale.
Perfectly complements tasteful, quality British foods, premium pies, gravies, sausages and weekend BBQ’s. Works perfectly with Sticky Toffee Pudding too!
Greene King IPA is characterised by its hoppy taste and aroma that comes from the use of challenger and first gold hops, which are combined with pale and crystal malts.

Nowadays, Greene King IPA is enjoyed in over 30 countries worldwide.
Greene King IPA is a perfectly-balanced ale, characterised by its fresh, hoppy taste and clean, bitter finish. This hoppy taste and aroma come from two varieties of English hops – Challenger and First Gold – which are combined with pale and crystal malts. A great beer to enjoy with curry, Mexican and other spicy food, or simply on its own.
