More aggressively hopped than I had expected. Very good. Strong grapefruity hop presence but still well balanced with a nice mild malt foundation. Finished clean and fast. Beautiful clear dark amber with little head.

Maybe this should not be had draft on the East Coast. I found it pleasant, but not as impressive as the other reviewers seem to have. An adequate golden ale, no more. Not unpleasant in any way. Sweet malt, floral and aromatic hops, with a bitter finish. But I got none of the characteristics of a Cascade hop, no citrus, no pine.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Pale Amber coloured, slightly hazy. Fine white head, long-lasting, heavier than average carbonation. Classic cascade hop smell, but not totally killing the malt. Moderatly sweet in mouth, medium bodied, slightly acidic with its grapefruit and lemon notes, cascade hops make for a moderatly to heavy bitter finish, but biscuity malt never fails to keep it balanced. Thanks CapFlu!

Pours a light amber with moderate white head, nice lacing. The hop taste is nothing like I remember it, it has been a few years since I've had this beer and the California brewers have since gone crazy, moderating this beer somewhat. A very nice APA though.

A nice American IPA, not overly hopped like some west coast IPAs but done tomeet more commercial tastes. Clean and refreshing on a hot summer day. My favorite Anchor brew.

The inital smell was unpleasant. It smelled like my grandma dropped her perfumed sachet in it,extremely flowery. The taste was ok, fruity malty sweetish taste, not to much bitterness,good drinking beer, but couldn't get over the shock of that intial whiff

Liberty Ale is a hazy, orange tinted amber beer that pours with a solid white head, that slowly dissipates to a thin film of foam. Strong citrus notes in the aroma, with a definite hop spiciness. I can smell hints of the aroma as it sits on my desk. This is a complex beer, with malt, citrus, and peppery flavors intermingling. The finish is heavy on the citrus notes. The mouthfeel is very full and solid, as to be expected by the film left by the head.

Pours a golden brown with a small tan head and lots of hop in the nose. The taste is hoppy with malt notes but is very crisp. Smooth but with a weakened bitter finish. Good stuff!

Nice cloudy amber color with a light/medium body and a mild plesent smell. Hoppy and sour good beer with some nice flavors. Acidity after taste.
