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.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2003
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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Pours a nice dark gold with lots of head and plenty of lace. Floral hops and citrus nose. Some malt in the flavor, again a nice floral taste, some fruits. A good dry finish. Pleasing pale ale.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
This one pours a decent head and has a light amber color to it. The flavor is slightly hoppy, but not as strong as most pale ales.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Pours a nice amber color, good head and lacing. Flowery, citrus aroma, but not the grapefruit. Tastes hoppy, with a slight malt middle and a bitter end. Although it has been eclipsed by some other excellent APA's recently, this is the grandaddy of them all and is still a quite quaffable example of the style.

JK (4350) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This ale looks like apple juice. Aromas of fruit, grass, and hops. Taste is all hops, with a sweet malt finish. Light. Refreshing.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Medium peach in color, with a large white head that slowly recedes to leave small amounts of lacing. Aroma is mainly dominated with cascade hops (pine needle & some citrus) with some bready maltiness and a bit of yeatiness hanging out. Taste is of piney hops, some sweet citrus, and hints of breadiness. Body is medium, flavor is very well balanced, and immensley drinkable.
