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.

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

33 cl can @ home. BBE 12/2017.
Pours dark amber color with a large head. Caramel and malty notes on the nose, some orange and mandarin notes, mild hops. Flavor is bitter malty with subtle caramel sweetness, orange and some nutty tones. More fruitier and less maltier Amber Ale, which is a good thing for me.

Bottle from Oddbins Rosemount. Pours cloudy amber-brown with a thick beige-white head. Aromas of candy floss, grassy hops and fresh orange juice. Flavour is a mild bitter, warming malt with a clean citrus hop and barley sugar sweetness. A nice soft, light mouthfeel with a gentle sparkle. A refreshing, warming and gently tart amber ale.

Heidbummer (649) - 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. Wouldn’t session it.
