Blandford Flyer (an Interesting beer)

Blandford Flyer

I was wandering around Sainsbury’s the other day when as a keen fly fisherman my attention was automatically drawn to a bottle of beer called Blandford Flyer. I purchased a couple of bottles out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised with its taste, if you like whisky and ginger ale then you will probably like this. It has a subtle warm ginger flavour with an element of maple syrup sweetness.

The beer is brewed by Badger to celebrate the infamous biting insect of Dorset’s River Stour; folklore claims the inspired inclusion of ginger was a remedy to the fly bite.
