Dorothy Goodbody's Country Ale

It's English, it's strong, it's an ale. Do we need to say anything more?

Alluring artwork aside, the nose is also getting me going. Though faint, it has enough biscuit and caramel malts to let you guess what is ahead. Yes, it just what you were expecting. A strong English ale in all its glory: caramel/bready malts balanced with slightly spicy and floral hops. There was a slight citrus flavour that gave an astringent and dry ending. Don't forget the low carbonation and medium mouthfeel.
