Product information

A uniquely sweet and spicy golden ale.

A refreshingly different ginger taste is offset with hints of sweet toffee.

Don't just take our word for it, ask any fisherman and they'll attest - it's not only the trickle of trout that bites on the tranquil River Stour at Blandford. Should you wade these waters on a warm summer's night, beware the infamous Blandford Fly, whose bothersome bite can only be soothed with a spicy slice of fresh ginger.

My new fav

Usually like a hoppy aftertaste but I love the lingering sweet and spiciness of the ginger the Fly leaves. It's also got the alcohol to add to the kick. A real winner in my books but I can understand some of the negative reviews as it is so different from most other ales.

Reminds me of something: ... not beer

I love Badger Beers, but this is not a beer to me. I didn't read the small print, just the (wrong) image of the bottle saying "Golden Ale" and not showing the "Sweet and Spicy" which the actual bottle shows. It is a bit spicy/gingery, it certainly is very sweet. The combination somehow reminds me of some dessert, maybe of a really sweet Gingerbred Man? Not sure I can finish the glass right now...

As others have said too sweet - too fruity - tastes like pop and not like beer at all. Not for me

Too sweet and not pleasant

I was expecting to be able to taste ginger but couldn't. There is a kind of odd taste with it but not really ginger. On top of that it's incredibly sweet. I won't be buying again and wouldn't recommend it

Odd taste

I ordered Crabbies Ginger beer but got this instead, I personally find the taste odd and tastes nothing like ginger beer. I wouldn't order this again.
