Nice golden color. Good foam retention. Pronounced hop aroma, not over the top. Very nice malt is lightly sweet but comes clean and dry. Combined with the hops of this nice ale (cascade and northern brewer I would say) reminds me of grapefruit juice. Bright fruity flavor enhanced by that wonderful natural carbonation makes for a soft ride on the palate. Well balanced. A very fine traditional American ale.

I wanted a Sierra Nevada Celebration..The bartender said “sorry sold out in December” He gave me two choices “ Flying Dog Doggie style or Anchor Liberty” feeling more patriotic then frisky I chose Liberty. My draught is served in a pub glass the pale ale has a nice tight 1”head… the evidence of Dry hopping citrus, grapefruit aromas are fantastic . The flavor is hop bitterness with enough malt to balance it nicely. The medium mouthfeel and carbonation make for a easy drinking hoppy ale .Its was the right choice

Kind of wants to be an IPA but not quite there yet. Big floral boquet but not without the pronounced major high notes such as rosemary or pine. Silky smooth on the tounge, a bite of a sharp aftertaste.

Pours clear amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma is clean floral hops. Taste is of hops but not especially complex or aggressive. Some toffee character.

Very bready, i think it was a bit skunky. light brown/amber color, clear with tall tan head. very hoppy and spicy with very little sweet finish. I was a bit disappointed . I bet there are better anchor liberty ales out there. perhaps another in the fridge will be better

Ah, Anchor Liberty. A magnificent shrine to the Cascade. Pours shiny copper with fine white head and some nice lingering lace. Wonderful citrus, pine and flowery hop aromas. Smooth rounded mouthfeel. Perfect crisp hop bitterness and a warm malt finish that sneaks up on you and puts a period at the end of every sip. There are bigger IPAs, but not many that pull off such superb poise and balance. This was one of the first IPAs I tasted, and now, many IPAs later, it is every bit as impressive.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle; Hazy orange with excellent tight head dragging belgian laze down the sides of the glass. As you pour you get an agreeable sweet almost candylike aroma - I do not realy smell the cascade here. The flavour is dominated by spicy hops with a long dry bitterness. I feel it could use some more malt to back up the powerful bitterness. A bit of alcohol can be tasted. But still a great beer. The carbonation is perfect and the mouthfeel is big and filling.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle. Copper colored with a foamy white head. Nose is floral hops, toffee and lemon. Taste is malty and slightly fruity with a strong citrus and piney hop background. Probably one of the first American IPAs, and IMHO still one of the best.

Pour is a dark yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is nice an hoppy. Flavor is aslo hoppy but very mild. Prob not a IPA. Its still tasty and smooth. Could be your every day beer.
