COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
This cask conditioned traditional real ale is quite light golden in colour with an EBC of 17 (most lagers are 8-10 and ales 20+) and is brewed at 4.0% ABV. It is brewed with Maris Otter Pale Ale malt and a low percentage of crystal and wheat malt, for flavour and head retention qualities. The bitterness, which is not too high at 25 is derived from English Goldings hops, whilst the floral, citric (orange/grapefruit) hop aroma comes from the use of two continental varieties, namely Hallertau Hersbrucker and Styrian Goldings.
Liberation Ale is now available throughout the Channel Islands and has been extremely well received since its launch in time for the annual Liberation Day celebrations; the overall flavour and zesty nature of the beer has proved very popular. Liberation Ale will now be the flagship traditional ale in all of our outlets.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2014
Cask pint at the Ship & Crown, St. Peter’s Port, Guernsey. Golden colour, low white head. Very moderate aroma, not as hoppy as expected. Decent hops throughout in the flavour, some malts too. Smooth to drink.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Cask @ Ship & Crown, St. Peter Port. Smooth and mild in the beginning. Hints of grain, tends to be watery, easy to drink. Fresh and smooth. Slightly bitter to the aftertaste, nice ale aroma, but still quite watery. On the tongue remains a fresh, smooth ale aroma with a quite watery /thirst-quenching touch! Highly drinkable Real Ale, but not very deep. Hints of sweetness.

foxo82 (692) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Country #91. Hand pulled at The Red Lion, Kings Heath, Birmingham. Golden ale with a nice, dense head. Slight citrus aroma followed by a smooth, crisp feel and citrus tang reminiscent of Harvest Pale. Excellent ale, this - not entirely down to the brisk half hour walk to get here.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a cloudy copper colour with no head. Funky aroma of wet grass and caramel. Flavours were stale and not very pleasant. Might have been toward the end of the barrel, but I’d drunk quite a few sub-parr cask conditioned beers at this year’s festival.

Cask at GBBF ’13, 15/08/13. Clear golden with a thin off white head. Nose is a little subdued, light floral hop notes, citrus, orange. Taste comprises toasted malts, popcorn, orange, grassy, light vanilla, a hint papery. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok golden blonde.
