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.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2009
Cask (handpump) at the Plough, Worcester, May 2009. I only went for it because I thought I had only had it in bottle but it turned out to be one of those "I must have rated this before, oh no I haven’t moments". Ginger colour. Good condition. Quite fruity aroma. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Sweetish. Some medicinal herbal notes.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2009
Amber with medium white head. Aroma is malts, caramel, touch of smoke / tobacco. And a definite hint of cheap hot dog. More tobacco in flavour, more malts and caramel, some spice, little alcohol burn. Thin mouthfeel.

2.8
mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2009
Pours a chestnut amber with a thin and soon-forgotten head. Aroma is anglo-hops and pinched sweetness. Tastes like a slightly over-powered ESB. Good carbonation, thinnish body. Nothing to write home about.

3.2
Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009
The color is dark amber and the head is huge, creamy and lasting. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruit, malt, caramel, citrus, light licorice, alcohol and the finish is spicy and dry.

topherh (1928) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours coppery with a tiny beige head. Caramel and berries in the nose. Flavor is caramel, a bit of roast, and a long bitter finish.

3.3
Strykzone (7364) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Pour is a dark caramel brown with a small tan head that is noisy and very temporary. A pleasant aroma of dark fruit and caramel. That aroma stays pleasant throughout the bottle. Flavor is rye, spicy, fruity, and caramel. Throw in some more spice and this could be a nice Fall or Winter seasonable. Still, it is a nice beer with a classic feel to it.

3.3
AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - APR 2, 2009
0.5l - Copper color with light tan head, caramel and smoke on palate, more smokey than hoppy.

2.9
Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2009
Dark amber with a thin off white head. Slight aroma of malt with a taste of malt. Fairly smooth.
