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?

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.

Nsanders (833) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
750 mL bottle. Red brown with a moderate orange tan head. Caramel, grainy alcohol, light rye dryness, malty and light vanilla. Taste is sweet, but fades to an alcohol dryness. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

Tap at Northbound Smokehouse. A better than average red ale with a strong amber appearance. Light on the lacing but still strikes a fresh visual. Tastes mild without much aggression. More malt than hops but decently balanced. Aftertaste not its strong point...definitely leads with its best foot forward. A good option from one of the best MN breweries.

Poured on tap at the brewery. Nice dark coloring. Rich malt flavors and lighter in hops than many Imperial Reds I have tried. I like the reduced hop presence. Overall my favorite beer from Fultons

GJF (1397) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 23, 2015
On tap at Luce. Shared a few with Kurt after the Dead show at Target Center. Deep, muddy ruby pour. Generally sweet. A bit of scotch ale to it with a touch of rye sharpness. Nice.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2012
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.

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
