First Gold. A clean, fresh, distinctive ale with hints of orange and spice from the hop, perfect with traditional English roasts. Poacher's Choice. This rich, smooth brew has a softly spiced sweetness with dark liquorice notes and a fruity damson aroma. A gutsy ruby ale that is well matched with hearty game pie or a tangy mature cheese. England's Own. This award-winning brew's spirited origin is reflected in its zippy flavours of white grape and melon. A fitting accompaniment to Sunday roast chicken or a whole baked trout with a squeeze of lemon. Blandford 'Flyer'. A medium-bodied brew with warm ginger notes and a rounded sweetness; it makes a refreshing accompaniment to a hot lamb biryani or spicy crispy chilli beef. Badger ales have been brewed in the heart of the Dorset countryside since 1777. We combine hops and malted barley with pure spring water filtered naturally though the Cretaceous chalk downs of Dorset, to create the distinctive character of our Badger ales. There is a wide range of Badger ales; each inspired by traditional recipes and flavours from the countryside. We hope you enjoy discovering a different character in every bottle.
