An amber gemstone with a Dragonfly trapped inside is a highly prized and extremely valuable possession. We want you to feel the same way about this amber ale.
Crafted using a blend of six malts and lots of American C hops it is deep amber in colour with a floral/citrus hop aroma upfront. The initial flavour hit is resinous, citrus and pine followed by a rich biscuit and caramel maltiness and finishing with a lingering bitterness.
Dragonfly tastes great on its own or with lightly spiced pasta dishes, pizza or strong cheddars. Serve at 4C to emphasise the hops or at 12C for a fuller bodied, fuller flavoured experience. No additives, no adjuncts; just four top quality, natural ingredients: malt, hops, yeast and water.
Specifications: Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal, Vienna, Biscuit, Melanoidin, Flaked Barley
Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Columbus, Chinook
IBU: 40
OG: 1.046
ABV: 4.6%

Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

Heidbummer (358) - SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Pint at the Windsor. Pours muddy amber, lacy off-white head. Aroma of toffee and rubber. Lots of malt on the taste, burnt toffee, something a bit odd and musty which is on the border of interesting or horrible. Overall good but something weird in there. Wouldnt session it.

Cask @ Victorian Craft Beer Caf, Halifax. Bright clear copper-amber with a thin head. Has a mildish but tasty enough tropical fruit aroma and taste with a hint of grainy malts involved.

imdownthepub (13713) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from House of Trembling Madness, York. Amber with white head. There is a sweetish hoppy character to this, a light toffee malt background then citru, resinous notes to the fore. Lasting palate. Pleasant.

TEJA (2624) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle sampled at Bjrn, thanks. Small beighe head. Light opaque light amber color. Piny and citrus aroma that draws towards detergent. Hoppy taste that blends well with a balanced bitterness. Big drinkabillity.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. My first from this brewery. Bronze with a small head. Pleasant citrus and hoppy flavour. A bit thin but apart from that this is a pretty impressive beer.

Pours bright hazy copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is quite floral and zesty. Plenty of citrus flavours, orange, pine, light spice, moderate sweetness, decent malt backbone, bittersweet finish. Really nice.
