3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with dissapearing head. Sharp and complex at first. The finish is quite bitter and it’s a little too carbonated for me. Tases better as it warms and looses a little fizz. Excellent beer to have with spicy food.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, lager-like aroma. Pale clear copper color. The creamy white head disappeared almost before I looked at it. Crisp and bitter up front like a good pale ale with a clean malty finish. Hints of floral hops in the aftertaste. Truly a classic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - Light toasted malt notes with some fruity esters. Rustic hop notes. Light diacetyl? Not sure on that.
Color - copper color with a creamy white head that dissipates rather quickly
Flavor - Bitterness upfront, woody, with a caramel sweetness. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. Diacetyl is evident in the flavor. Must be an either old or mishandled bottle, not uncommon in OK.
Mouthfeel - High carbonation with some astringent character from the hops.
This beer reminds me of something between an Alt and an APA, overall a very good beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color and bright, white head. Dry malt and sugary aroma. Very bitter and dry, but still flavorful hoppines. Taste and palate are slightly fruity, with a bubbly finish. Medium bodied for a lagar - I guess from the warmer brewing and storage during creating this beer. Not as good as their pale ale, which is insanely good. This is nonetheless a fantastic beer.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Pours a light amber with a white head. Malty sweetness. Hight bitterness. Aromas of bitter hops and a hint of prunes. Medium bodied. Dry, bitter finish. Not very complex beer.

Not my first choice from Liberty. The low alcohol content makes it drinkable over the course of a day.

On tap. Light amber color with a decent white head. Pleasant aroma of hops. Nice combination of malt and hops in the flavor. Not a complicated beer by any means, but very pleasant and enjoyable.

Something about this beer just made it go down so nicely, and the bitterness just seemed ideal. Not a lot of complexity, and I’m only guessing on the appearence as I never got around to pouring it out of the bottle, but just went down too perfectly to rate poorly.
