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.

Beese (1099) - 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 handpump at the Plough, Chelmsford. Golden brown colour with a small slightly off-white head. Nice aroma of hops, straw and grass, floral with a touch of citrus. Medium body, slightly bitter finish pitched at right level. A very nice couple of pints enjoyed whilst watching the Cricket.

Gold pour with thin white head. Not much aroma apart from malt and a little citrus. Taste is a bit bland..sweet, slight caramel but not much to it. Easy drinking but not anything too exciting

Decent golden ale that is a nicely balanced ale with malts most evident in the flavour.
