With a coppery gold colour, great presentation, head and lacing, this is a beer that delivers. Dry, but not too much, lightly bitter with a slight burnt wheat flavour and a fresh hot nose. This is a moreish beer which, at 5.2% doesn't know its strength!
Speckled Sussex have everything: they are great layers of tinted or light brown eggs--and they lay right through the coldest weather. They are dual purpose birds, though: fat-bodied and not prone to flying when mature, so they are easily fenced. In England, they used to be THE standard table bird, before the modern Cornish Crosses came along. They forage well and are economical eaters that are friendly and easily handled.
