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.

yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle at John Bull, Aalborg. It pours a clear, dark amber body and a small, dense, off-white to beige head. The aroma is weak and caramel scented, with some roasted, coffee aromas. Full body, slightly over-carbonated. Medium dry. The flavor has coffee, dark chocolate, some dried fruits and a bitter touch. Bitter finish. Pleasant, tasteful and interesting. Would like to have more of this one. 101204

4.3
rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pint .9oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. The label has a very brief description of the beer plus serving temp. It also has the abv listed at 6%.

Appearance: The body has a deep amber color with a burnt orange to reddish highlight. It has tons of visible carbonation rushing up to its thick and creamy head. The tightly packed off white head leaves lots of cool lace patterns and rings on the glass.

Smell: It’s malty and sweet with notes of caramel and toffee. Underneath the maltiness is a mild dried leafy/herbal and slightly mineral like hop presence.

Taste/Palate: Meeting on the tongue are wonderful malty bready notes with hints of bready yeast, caramel and toffee with mellow fruitiness. Light leafy and herbal hops add a pleasant balance of mild bitterness to the finish. Its mouth feel is a solid medium to full and smooth as silk with mellow carbonation.

Notes: This beer has a brilliant flavor, balance and excellent drinkability. Cheers!!!
