Hop tinged aroma that is more buttery than anything. Slick mouthfeel is anchored by caramel malts and nice bittering hops. I could see myself drinking a few of these.

Pours a nice copper colour, with a white fluffy head. Great lacing and retention. Aroma is citrussy as expected, and a fairly sweet malt. Nice hoppy bite, without overpowering the great malt complexity that this beer has. Smooth clean hoppy finish. Fantastic!

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Very solid beer. A friend has talked up Liberty brewing and this one does not disappoint. Nice hoppy flavor and copper color. Order me another, bartender!

Pours light orange with a tightly-beaded paper white head that is thin but stubborn. Rings of whitecap lace adorn the glass. Pepper, marigolds, diacetyl, citrus zest, pinesap, vanilla, and ripe mango delight the nose. Crisp, crackery malt flavor, gently carbonated, with notes of peach, strawberry, and chocolate mints. Medium bodied and silky. Pleasant pit fruity aftertaste with a chickory bitterness. Smooth and sublime.

Aroma is herbal with some yeast. Beautiful golden color with a golden head. Flavor is citrus like and peppery. With a quick bite of the hops. Finish is malt that quickly turns to bitter hops.

I love all of the anchor beer’s I’ve tried, and this is no exception. Very smooth, with great, well rounded flavor.

Bitter and spiced but yet quite soft. No wonder this is popular. Palate is a boost of bitter, complex flavors. Very nice.
