Well balanced and extremely tasty! A little bit more residual sweetness is the only thing keeping it from a near perfect score.

Liberty ale is a classic, however compared to other American pale ales I didn’t find it so exciting. Maybe it was revolutionary when it came out, but now its hop profile seems quite subdued. Shared bottle at Plonk.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wygląd: Złote, klarowne z iskrą. Piana biała, obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała i ładnie firankuje na ściankach szkła.
Aromat: Aromat chmielowy słodki: dojrzałe mango, pieczone jabłko, żywica do tego toffee. Bardzo przyjemny.
Smak: Delikatne, głównie słodowo, biszkoptowe, lekko owocowe z niewielką grejpfrutową goryczką. Minimalnie metaliczne.
Odczucie: Nasycenie CO2 powyżej średniego, faktura kremowa, ciało poniżej średniego.
Całość: Bardzo delikatne piwo, klasyczne APA, co na obecne standardy bardzo mało chmielowe. Wybitnie pijalne.

Pours a slightly hazy golden. Smells earthy with a mixture of fruits. Pretty carbonated. Somewhat bitter and dry. Tastes are similar to the aromas, but more muted.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
355ml bottle from LCBO, Toronto, ON. Pours a hazy dark gold colour with one finger of foamy white head. Flowery aroma with notes of spice and some oranges. A very pleasent IPA-like taste. Not as bitter and spicy as your average American Pale Ale. It’s smooth and refreshing. Lacing clings to the side of the glass. Moderate carbonation.

Transfer from BA review from10-12-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a quite hazy orange-amber color with a two finger, thick and creamy white head. The head very slowly fades, leaving a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is of a citrus nature overall with a good dose of sweet orange and some aromas of a more grapefruit like nature. Along with these aromas, were other smells of fruit, with apple, mango and pear all present. Some bready aromas and a bit of an earthy hop smell round out the aroma profile, producing a rather sweet and balanced IPA smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and grapefruit hop taste. There is a little bit of a caramel sweetness upfront, but this is rather light with it growing even lighter as the taste advances further. While the caramel fades, some fruit flavors of lighter fruits comes to the tongue. Along with the fruit flavors, so too comes more hop with more grapefruit as well as an earthy hop flavor coming to the tongue. At the end, a nice floral flavor come to the tongue, rounding out the flavors nicely and producing a drier and nicely moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for the drier and moderately hopped flavors of the brew, making for a very easy drinking beer.
Overall – A very enjoyable and easy drinking, moderately hopped brew. Quite tasty overall.
