Blandford Fly


/ 5.2% ABV

With hints of toffee and ginger notes

Deep in the reeds of the River Stour, it lies in wait. Patiently. Ready for unsuspecting prey. Once feared by those who fish these waters, was the ferocious bite of the infamous Blandford Fly. Craftier fishermen know of a different Blandford Fly...

One with a sweeter side and refreshing notes of ginger (said to soothe the dastardly fly’s bite). And with hints of toffee to offset the spice, we think you’ll agree this unique golden ale is quite the catch.

    All the beers are great. I just love working my way through them when I enjoy sitting down to an ale on the weekend. Love the fact that when I am at my UK Home my favourite Pub in Somerset ‘Worlds End’ does the beers on tap/draught. Sorry for the US ‘on tap’ term.

    Great work guys. Get my weekend beers in Sainsburys.

    This is an absolutely cracking ale. Light, refreshing, with subtle spices and a punch of ginger. Great with food or on it’s own at any time of year.
