Smooth & refreshing. Bursting with flavour. Twin malt four hop brew. Creating beers of distinction. ...Owes its name not to a bird, but to a car: a paint-spattered Featherweight Fabric Saloon, the MG factory runaround, fondly referred to as the 'Owld Speckl'd Un' thanks to its mottled appearance. Our famous beer, with its distinctive and delicious toffee-malt character, was first brewed in 1979 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic MG factory.
