Name change in August 2011 from Blandford Fly
With the hot summer sun beating down, the patient fly-fishermen of the Dorset Stour await their catch. These ’Flyers’ are celebrated in this warming ale with ginger overtones, rumoured to be originally included to remedy the bites of the infamous Blandford Fly. The rounded sweetness of this medium-bodied brew makes it an ideal and refreshing accompaniment to a hot lamb biryani or spicy crispy chilli beef.

Decent refreshing ale.
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Moderate ginger intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Malty, herbal and ginger in the flavor.

Butelka. Miedziane z ladna biala piana. W zapachu lekkie cytrusy nuty orzechowe ciastka i chmiel. W smaku podobnie. Dosc plytkie. Goryczkowy finisz. Nic wielkiego

thirstyrabbit (1692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle. Golden body with a small head. Aroma has sharp ginger and not much else. Taste has sweet malt with plenty of ginger. I don’t detect hoppy parts behind this spicy ginger. Too much ginger and not enough hops for me. It’s clean and drinkable but I generally don’t enjoy ginger beers that much. Not something I would want to have again.

Boa cerveja. Gostosa e saborosa, muito próxima a uma boa pilsen, mas não chega a ser sensacional não. Vale tomar num bom preço.

En lettere sød øl, der har en MEGET stærk smag af ingefær! den brænder helt i munden efter en slurk. Hvis man gerne vil smage hvad en øl med krydderi er, så er dette et godt valg.

PintjeFritz (102) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle: beautiful two labels but no information in detail about the hops and malts Golden amber beer with a beautiful white head, heavy sweetness, no bitterness, I can taste the ginger, perhaps too much, clear body, flat carbonation (I have a 0.5l bottle with batch 12:59 L5008H and best-before date Jan 2016)

midovark (347) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from England. Dark golden-amber colored. Sweet ginger and a hint of chocolate in aroma. Medium bodied, low carbonated. Not bad, but wasn’t meant for me.
