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.

bhensonb (13821) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Bottle as Our Glass. Earthy malty aroma. Amber color with a two finger beige head. An old ale aroma for sure. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is malt with something like medium dark or dried light stone fruit. This is great stuff. The mildly roasted malt is set off by some bitter hop. I can’t describe it, so you must just try it. It is very, very good.
