Poured goldish amber in color. Nice hoppiness, but not overly so. Clean on the palate with a touch of malt in flavor. Smooth. Very good.

The Liberty poured a golden color like honey with a thick head that left a bit of lace on the side of the glass. I expected a little darker color but it did pour beautifully. I didn't quite know what to think at first sniff. When I smelled again, one thing came to my mind- flowers. No, it wasn't like smelling a dozen roses, but there was a distinct flowery aroma. I would generally describe the aroma as clean and simple, like mountain air after a rain. The Liberty has a very crisp flavor with little aftertaste. There is a noticable bitter, hoppy flavor. I was expecting a larger, more dramatic flavor but the Liberty is a refreshing beer that I can imagine having more of in the future.

Pretty golden color with a large thick off-white head. The aroma isvery much like an IPA...lots of citrusy hops, some malty sweetness, slight caramel. The flavor is more balanced with citrusy tones...lemon, grapefruit...lots of caramel, malty sweetness, and some nice burnt wood tones. The feel is incredible...crisp, clean, bubbly, semi-dry finish. Great!

Honey sweet aroma with lots of hoppy headyness. Unimpressive look, however. Topaz color and very clear. Bitter attack, broad hoppy middle, quick finish.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2003 Colour is amber orange with a slight cloudy tinge. Nice subtle white head. Aroma is spicy with a nice biiter hint from the Cascade hops. The taste is hoppy with a slight spicy finish. Go paul go!

Dark golden ale with a fruity hopped ale aroma. The flavour to me is classically English beer hopped with a citric finish. Overall a reasonable attempt at an English ale.

Interesting smell. It tasted more like the Anchor Steam than a pale ale. Worth a try.

I didnt like this stuff. Golden colour with a thin to medium-thin head. Lots of hops, and that is what I didnt like about it. Too sharp for me.

Paid $8.99 for a six-pack (bottled). Golden-orange color with thin lacing. Fairly carbonated mouthfeel. Slightly hoppy with some fruity characteristics and noticable malt undertones.

Medium amber clear colour with a small medium lasting head. Attractive fruity nectar and floral hoppy aroma. Smooth to light cream lowish carb body. Intriguing tropical fruit (passionfruit pineapple) floral hops with hint of rosewater flavours. Medium to light dry bitter finish.
