Bottled (355ml). I didn't realise until I started pouring that this hadn't quite settled out after transportation, so I had to proceed ultra-carefully. Result - no head and a slight suspension of very fine particles. That did not interfere with my enjoyment on iota. Pale copper/orange colour. Cascade aroma - zingy grapefruit and spicy lychee. Low carbonation - a slight prickle on the tongue. Floral hoppy palate with a fruit cocktail of flavours - maily citrus - and just a tinge of underlying sweetness. Clean, crisp finish. Some find this type of beer a bit in-yer-face, but I like it.

This used to be a standard, but I haven't had it in years now. Light copper, stirred up the sediment in this one, great head. Aroma is a popping grapefruit and pine aroma, with some biscuity notes. Flavor is mostly a straight match, although the malt is somewhat more forward in the mix. Hint of a vegetal quality is the only thing that detracts from this beer. Rightfully holds a place as one of the beers that changed the landscape here in the US.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
A very nicely balanced Ale with good Cascade hop aromas and enough of a malt profile to keep it interesting. However, I thought the finish was a little too watery for me. Nice brown/orange tint with a pleasant nose. A bit overrated.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Draft: Medium golden color with a thin white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some light pale malt. Body is lightly sweet and well hopped, with a dryish finish and some floral aspects. Has decent balance, but could be a little thicker and sweeter.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Clear light orange body, off-white head. Flowery citrus aroma. Flavor is medium bitter hops and grapefruit up front, then a lot of biscuit malty flavors. Much more balanced then many of the brews it inspired. Finish is very dry and the flavors linger for a little while before completely.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 This beer has become a classic because of it's well balanced flavor and aroma. Thirst quenching smooth bitterness you can count on. Sample all the boutique beers you want and come back and try Liberty again and it still holds it's own nicely.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Small head on a golden orange colored body. Sweet nose of fruit and flowers. Delicate! Hoppy aroma with a fruity touch. Good hoppy aftertaste. Another great beer from Anchor!! It is rare to find beers this balanced!!

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours a cloudy beverage with huge amounts of citrus/apricot/orange/ manderine flavour. Malty scents with more citrus. Wouldn't drink more than one!

A hoppy flavor, yet somehow not as good as most hoppy beers. Lacks any real zing or bite. Normal Anchor is still the best in my book.
