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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden with a bit of off-white foam. Aroma of stale malt, cardboard, minerals and light fruitiness. Flavor is quite dry, stale, with minerals - very-hard-water-like - and light fruitiness. Quite light-bodied with strong carbonation.

Scopey (7875) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Cask at the Cock & Bottle, St Helier. It pours clear gold with small white head. The nose is soft, grainy, oatcakes, grainy and mild spice. The taste is sweetish, grainy, cereal, biscuity malt, mild lemon with a short, dryish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Nothing much of note. Fairly basic by all accounts. Meh.

Flaske, 50 cl, tak Papsø. Klar gylden, hvidt skum. Maltet næse, let karamel og milde noter af nødder. En mild brise af sommerblomster. Let krop, harmløs, meget britisk og totalt uinteressant.
