COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A libertine is someone living free of society’s restraints. Similarly, The Libertine doesn’t constrain itself with preconceived notions of what a beer style should be. Loaded with malts that include the UK’s premium Maris Otter and Caramel 60, and topped off with Rye to impart a distinct reddish hue, the Libertine is a malt-dominated red ale like none you’ve ever had before. It boasts a rich, indulgent body without being overly sweet. Conventional classifications fail The Libertine, but who really wants to play by the rules anyway?

Autumnal brown with small white head. Aroma is dominated by red fruity esters. Really eatery. Red fruit, a bit tart, a bit of malt. Really odd beer.

My favorite Fulton beer. I love these unique fusion brews. Had from bottle and tap at brewery. Prefer the tap. Intense flavors with the great red coloring.

bookman10 (638) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a reddish-yellow/orange with smallish head. Aroma is dominated by malt and grain. Flavor is malty, a bit sweet (though not too much), with a rather unpleasant aftertaste, almost like paper or cardboard. There’s a "boozy" undercurrent to the flavor as well. It’s interesting, but not something I’d want to buy another bottle of.

amber pour with a medium almost tan head. aroma is toasted malt. Fairly one note but not unpleasant. Flavour is sour-ish graininess combined with toasted malts, somewhat bready rye finish.

Bacterial (1523) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2012
On tap at Muffuleta's - boy is this nice. Dark ruby pour with a light white head. Malty nose, a heavy red ale that coats your mouth with a nice balance of malt and hops. Really nice! If this was $6 in the stores I would be buying a ton of it!!

Stopped in to my favorite store south of the river, (Hops & Vines) they are having a beer tasting event tonight. 750 ml bottle color light red/golden. Sweetness in the nose. Softly carbonated. Alcohol prevalent. Caramel notes with a hint of molasses. Noticeable pepper in the finish. Good beer, probably their best to date.

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Tap @ Northbound. Pours a clear, dark orange with a cream colored head. Toasty caramel, a bit sugary, toffee, herbal hoppy nose. Strong, somewhat boozy, caramel, grassy, herbal, sugary flavor. Pretty strong and sugary.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2012
750mL bottle pours a clear ruby/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of caramel malts, rye, with fruits and a slight sour aspect. Taste of sweet caramel malts, rye, grains, dark fruits, with a bitter alcohol finish. It’s almost drinkable, yet nothing special, until the end. Gross.

Tap at Northbound. Rich reddish pour with a large off white head. Syrupy palate. Rich caramel aroma. Alcohol is noticeable. Big and good, nice brew.

Draft at Fulton Taphouse near Target Field in Minneapolis. Sweetness in the nose. Softly carbonated. Higher alcohol prevalent. Caramel notes with a hint of molasses. A little harshness/pepper in the finish. Nice beer, probably their best to date.
