Liberation Ale
A golden ale available in bottle and on draft in pubs on Jersey. Itís brewed using the maris otter & lager malt, golden hops provide bitterness while Syrian goldings and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops provide aroma. Itís has a hint of citrus on the nose. Itís a morish beer, with one often leading to two!

Liberation Ale
I wasnít 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 doesnít cut the mustard. Admittedly it was a long way from home, so Iíll give it the benefit of perhaps being a beer that doesnít travel well...

Liberation IPA (Cask)
At GBBF. Creamy, thickly lacing, yellowish white, clearly hops-enhanced head adorning a beautifully deep and pure amber colour with calm fizz, a bit hazy. Aroma of toasted bread, roasted pinenuts, caramel, fried egg but not unpleasantly so, flowers, some dried orange peel. Clean and crisp taste of dried berries with a soft, smooth, toasted and nutty maltiness underneath as well as a hint of clean and even refreshing, pure honey sweetishness; finish is florally hoppy, not thoroughly bitter but pleasantly fragrant retronasally, while the aftertaste remains juicily malty. Pleasant and well-balanced English style IPA.
