COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
NOTE: The bottled version (at 4.9%) has a separate listing.
Rich ruby ale with a fruity aroma.
This ale is named after a deep red dragon fly found in local rivers and wetlands. The beer, the newest to the Andwell’s range, uses malted rye to create its characteristic ruby glow. The flavours and aromas derive from a combination of English hops.
