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.

Clean malt aroma with a light fresh alcohol aroma.Dark orange color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning getting stronger in the finish. Malt plays a large role in the end.

Black pour with a nice tan head. Long lasting head with plenty of lacing left behind. Malt and chocolate aroma. Creamy mouth with a nice presence of malt. Some chocolate in there for good measure. Nice beer.

Bottle 50cl. Foggy bronze colour. Big and stable ivory head. The aroma is modest. Vague caramel, esters and hops. Medium to full body. Creamy texture. The taste is medium dry. Caramel, nuts, floral hops. Light bitterness. Decent.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Draft at Max's - This beer was "pulled" English style, served at room temp. It had very little carbonation, but seemed to be the right amount for the style. A tasty English Beer that I would get again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle: Pours a murky amber color with very little head or lacing. The nose has a very robust caramelly note, missing a bit of co2, but it has a light fruit and sherry note to it. I like the body and mouthfeel with the rich caramelly malts. Finishes with a light snappy acidict. Classic english strong ale with that characteristic atlantic voyage age to it.

3.3
OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pint bottle pours pale brown with a short offwhite head that stays well. Aromas of slight caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is caramel, slight brown sugar, and slight bitterness at the finish. Palate is smooth and easy to drink. Pretty decent for a session brew and easy to drink. Somewhat dry at the finish.

Ungstrup (37574) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2007
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a thin head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of spices and caramel, leading to a dry bitter finish with a light touch of roasted malt.

jsquire (4489) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Out of the Our Glass bottle. Copper color with a thin white head. Some cereal grains and citrus hops in the nose. Bready malts and caramel sweetness with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish.

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.

3.3
Strykzone (7356) - 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.
