Re: What beer is in your fridge?

Badger Brewery's, "Blandford Fly"................. (apparently named after a locally famous bitey insect from around Dorset's River Stour!, an interesting, but ultimately useless factoid for most of you!).

Never tried it, but am about to! thumbsup

'Blandford Fly' sounds like something from Wodehouse story.

Let us know how you got on with that one,haven't tried that myself either but have tried several other Badger beers. Golden Glory is first class!  yummy

(prefer the lighter real ales myself,not quite gone fully into the 'darkside' just yet!)

I have a couple of bottels of Canadian in my fridge for my boyfriend, I don't like beer myself but worship my margharita blender instead  thumbsup
also I always keep some guinness around for the occasional steak and guinness pie.

Re: "Blandford Fly"

A light, golden ale. Sweetish top notes, fruity, slightly spicy (says on the label "ginger flavours" but am not so sure), bitter final note.

Definately a "lighter" drink & quite moreish. 5.2% abv............will buy it again (& its on discount at Sainsbury's).

Tonight we share a "Tiger Beer"(its midweek so we don't go mad!)

Re: What beer is in your fridge?

Just reading back, I have to agree with Ashen's assessment of St.Peter's Winter Ale..................ghastly stuff! but has anyone tried their Grapefruit Beer? At least I think it was brewed by St.Peter's..............I had it once, loved it & have never seen it again!

Re: What beer is in your fridge?

grapefruit beer?  sounds interesting... for a time i was hooked on Kawartha Lakes Brewery(KLB) Raspberry Wheat beer... It's a nice drinking beer but it really added something special when you cooked with it. I made a braised beef short rib with it once that was insanely good.  yummy

Re: What beer is in your fridge?

Hey there!

Amazing thread big_smile

As I come from Bavaria I risk to say that my (though not me) culture is very proud on their beer (Beer is taxed as a staple food).

I for instance prefer a beer sort similar to lager. It's called "Märzenbier". It's full bodied sort with about 5.9% Vol.

I don't like the bitter beer sorts such as Pils I rather tend to drink malty sorts. I also like Guinness smile
