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

Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

On cask at the Anderson, Fortrose. Cheers Jim! US hop led amber ale in the modern style. Big malt body with a finger of tight creamy head. I had suspected rye in the grist but has been assured there is not, must be the mix of the melanoidin and biscuit, as it has a bit of a pleasant malty pepper-y-ness which is full and astringent. Full fruit and spice body. Lightly bitter and extremely well balanced. Very good, I’ll be seeking out more of his brews
