Pours medium amber with small head. Smells very sweet and hoppy - one of the nicest and balances aromas from a liht ale. Taste balances sweet and bitter fairly well, although there is a bit of a medicine taste which becomes evident. Aftertaste is pleasent.

Draft at Toad in the Hole. Keg kicked mid-pint; beer is slightly hazy deep gold with tenacious meringue head. Light tangerine, floral, pine, and biscuit nose. Grapefruit is the dominant flavor note; I think one could nearly replicate this flavor profile with pink grapefruit juice and a spot of honey or malt extract. Carbonation feels especially refined, but finish has a touch of.. gastric.. acidity that precludes perfection.

12 fl oz bottle. Clear yellow-orange with creamy white head. Some lacings on the glass. Fruity aroma of lemon, orange, mango and grapefruit. Low carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a good beer. Very refreshing, easy to drink.

"not as big with the citrusy hop aroma or flavor as i’d expect. pretty thin on the palate, but not a bad beer. there are just much more intriguing pales out there"

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.

radzik5555 (368) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
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.

cattaneopapa (189) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
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.
