Our newest addition to our range is a Limited Edition Liberty Ale. We have designed it to show case one of our favourite hops. Created in America in 1983, cross between Hallertauer Mittlefrüh and downy mildew resistant male. A distinctive flavour that is spicy (cinnamon), resiny, and slightly sweet and lemony. It is an early ripening variety and delicious for summer. We use a little in our Golden Ale and have designed this beer to be a lighter malted version with full Liberty flavour and aroma. Limited availability in 500ml bottles and in cask.

Cask at the Duke of Wellington, London. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white foam head. Light aroma of delicate lemon and straw. Light swet flavor with dry pale malts, mild dough, some lemony citrus. Light of body and finely carbonated. Faintly drying to finish, light sweet with some further sun-kissed pale malts and lemon citrus. Basic and refreshing.

cask at the bow ... amber ... small white head ... soft floral peach nose ... lavander front... light but long bitterness ... soft fruit ... bitter linger kills this for me

Cask at the Duke Of Wellington beer festival. The pour’s slightly hazy gold in color with a tiny white head. The nose is lemony fresh hops, some straw and pear. Sugary shortbread biscuit. The taste is slightly syrupy sweet summer fruits. Notes of honeyed cereal. Creamy mouthfeel. Soft finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pleasant half!
