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.

500ml bottle. Pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma sweet and caramel malt. Hint of apple. Sweet start. Spicy caramel malt finish. Cloying aftertaste. Bit thin for the 6%.

austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Clear rubyish brown with basically no head, just a few sudsy soap bubbles (big ones). An extremely roasty, burnt ale, with lots of bitterness up front. Like chewing on a charred log that's been sitting in the embers of a fire. Overdone and massively disappointing. I would not drink this again.

imdownthepub (14791) - 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.

Absolutely no head. Some pretty dry hops, but mostly it just tastes flat. That said, its weirdly grainy flavor is still pretty good, just not great.

doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Dark red with creamy head. Notes of sweet malt and carmel. Fairly sweet flavour that is quite malty with some fruity notes. A bit carbonated; sweet in front and mild bitter finish.

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.
