venom666 (346) - Alicante, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2014
Hazy amber color with rich white mediaum-lasting head. Medium carbonation. Aroma rich is fruits and floral hops, with citrus and sweet malts. Taste is very fruity and citric, spicy and hoppy. Dry finish with a slightly bitterness. Very balanced and refreshing.

Ljusgul klar vätska med vit medelstor bestående krona.Frisk ganska söt doft. Smaken är ren och klar med vissa gräsiga inslag. Mycket välbalanserad med en lätt efterbeska. En bra ale

Aroma of mango and other exotic fruits, fruity, light sweet taste, some weeds in there too. Not bad, not great either.

tfredvik (1126) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2014
So, this is the famous Anchor Liberty Ale? The original hoppy American pale ale? The beginning of the craft beer revolution? This sweet, sugary, pale malt infested, lager-like stuff? You’re kidding me, right? Ok, so the aroma has some citric notes blended in with the generic fruits and the wet paper, but to call this "heavily hopped" and mean it, you’d probably need a time machine set to 1975. The flavour is a tad more interesting, there are some stingy floral and herbal stuff in the finish, and the citrus is more evident. The finish is also moderate bitter, and back in the good old days that was probably what it took. This one might have been a great beer once, but today if feels under-hopped and totally and utterly uninteresting.

355ml bottle from the LCBO. Gold body, slight amber tint, with a thin off-white head. Citrus and peach are present in the aroma, noble hop floral aroma as well. Medium-light bitterness. Thin body, very sessionable compared to many pale ales. Medium carbonation.

355ml bottle. Pours a solid amber with an off-white head. Pine aroma. Robust hops to taste but reasonably smooth with a nice bitter finish. Nice beer.

Bottle. Slightly bitter with only mild hops. A good flavor, just very weak overall. I guess I’m spoiled by Victory brews. Unimpressive.

ZacM612 (140) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Clear dark golden with white lacing head. Faint aroma, a little citrus, and some sweet fruit. Decent hoppy flavor and a mild bitterness in the finish.

Xavalias (154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with thin off-white head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy, fruity, flowery nose. Taste likewise, peaches, green apples, a bit of pine, grassy, some malty caramel, chemicals. Taste is light sweet to dry, medium bitter. Light astringency on the palate, medium high carbonation, watery. Long chemical bitter finish. Weird.
