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.

I wasn’t awfully impressed with this. It was gold in colour, had very little aroma, flavour or body. One of those forgettable beers which, however worthy just doesn’t cut the mustard. Admittedly it was a long way from home, so I’ll give it the benefit of perhaps being a beer that doesn’t travel well...

Pours a slightly hazy orangey golden color, topped with a fairly small white head. Mild aroma, slightly malty with mild floral hops. Some biscuity notes as well. Taste is not really sweet. mild bitterness, grassy body throughout. Dry finish. Crisp and refreshing. Not bad.

On tap in London. Golden body with medium head. Nose of malts, caramel and sugar. Taste is quite hoppy with grains and slightly weak texture. Nice punch in the finish.
