COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available bottle conditioned. Occasionally available on cask.
The fields of barley ripening in the sunshine; the hops climbing up the bines in late summer... It was sights like these that inspired Dorothy to create her Country Ale.
Made with all-natural ingredients, it’s a must for any discerning drinker who savours the summer and cares about the countryside.
This strong, full-bodied ruby ale can be enjoyed on its own or as a partner to red meat dishes, cheeses and even rich steamed puddings.

500 ml bottle. A malty beer. Some fruit notes, caramel. The body is thick and sweet. This beer did not hold my interest.

reebtogi (3842) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
500ml bottle poured a reddish-brown color with a small off-white head and some fine lacing. Aroma is mostly toasted malts. Taste is a pleasant malty sweetness with a mild hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. This is a nice representation of the style and was an enjoyable tasting experience.

Cloudy dark amber with medium head and full lacing. Taste is a nice balance between caramel malt and light hop bittering. A good session beer.

Clean malt aroma with a light fresh alcohol aroma.Dark orange color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning getting stronger in the finish. Malt plays a large role in the end.
