A lighter style ale brewed using Maris Otter barley, named for the rare carnivorous wetland flower, the Great Sundew (Drosera anglica), which experienced a revival when this beer was first brewed.

The plant this beer is named after has a sticky gel-like substance on the tips of tentacles that cover the leaves, given them the Appearance of having morning dew on them all-day long. Unsuspecting insects become stuck to the gel and the plant then slowly devours them.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/03/2012


Clear, orange golden with wafer thin white head.


Fairly restrained pale malt and floral hop nose with tinned peaches and citrus fruit.


Light grassy hops dominate a subdued, moderately bitter palate with sweet dried apricot fruit.


Faint lingering bitterness but little lasting flavour.
