COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A libertine is someone living free of societyís restraints. Similarly, The Libertine doesnít constrain itself with preconceived notions of what a beer style should be. Loaded with malts that include the UKís 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 youíve 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?

Sampled on tap at Fulton. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, syrupy, malty flavors. Kinda flat and cardboardy.

Bottle. Pours a dark red with. Aroma is a malt and grain blend. Flavor is nice with the booze shining through. Much better than I expected.

750ml bottle from khoffman43. Pours ruby red with minimal head. Nose is muted with toffee and caramel. Taste starts with bits of citrus, mid stream toffee enters stage left and continues to the quick finish. Body is a bit thin.

Atom (1212) - 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. Itís almost drinkable, yet nothing special, until the end. Gross.

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!!

Sampled this at The Dabbler yesterday. A very pleasant beer and surprisingly easy drinking for an imperial red.

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.

Steasy66 (804) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2012
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.

Sweet malt with a rye spice in the background. Iím getting some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the finish. This is really smooth beer.

Murky brown. Sweet malt on the nose. Caramel malts balanced with prominent hops. Some dark fruit flavors too. Soft mouthfeel. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
