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.

Bottle. Dark amber with small off-white head. Flavour is malt, caramel, fruit, hops and a little bitter.

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

Benzai (16919) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Slightly hazy amber colored beer, small slightly off-white head. Don’t smell much. Taste malts, slight coffee, slight hops and fruits. Low carbonation, low to medium body.

bhensonb (15967) - 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.

imdownthepub (15519) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. Redish brown beer with mid head, low condition. Strong dark flavoured beer with a toffeeish undercurrent. Some boiled hop notes with a vegetable, cabbagy note. Nothing special despite the ABV.
