UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 April 2007 - Bottle from the LCBO, shared by Mabel, Date code 6NR. Golden yellow body witha good sized creamy off white head. Hoppy aroma of grass, straw, mild citrus and resin. Citrus comes out a bit more as the beer warms in the glass. Flavour is fairly bitter, lightly astringent lemon citrus. Not as complex as I recalled, but quite pleasant. Average palate. Quaffable. 7-8/4/7-8/3/16 - 3.8 <P>July 2005 - Re-rate, bottle of indeterminate age from LCBO. Orangey amber body, moderate white head. Resiny aroma, small amounts of hops not much citrus. Similar flavour - moderate malt and decent helping of resin. Decent bitterness. Medium bodied palate. I suspect this bottle was on the older side as it lacked the fresh hoppiness of previous samples. A tastey but dissappointing return to a nice beer. 6/3/6/3+/13 - 3.2<P>April 2001 - Picked up two big bottles from the LCBO, and my (now ex)gf surprised me with another! Woohoo! The first one I polished off a little quickly... Seemed more bitter and citrusy than I remembered it being. I will have to be a little slower with the other two bottles. 7/3/7/3/16 - 3.6

Pours a cloudy light orange/yellow with a small but lasting head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. Flavor is surprisingly mild for an IPA. Hop bitterness starts out quite subdued but becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Quite expensive compared to other IPA's available in my part of Georgia but well worth the extra cost.

Amber color. Thick white head with lace all the way down. Floral, perfumy odor. Floral, perfumy, tangy, very bitter taste. Don't like the perfume or extreme bitterness. Not for me. Very bitter aftertaste.

VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Liberty ale is copper colored, slightly cloudy, and somewhat bubbly with a frothy white head. Crisp, hoppy aroma. Starts off mild for an IPA with a blend of mild floral hoppiness and malt. Finishes with a pleasing bitter flavor. This beer is lighter on the hops than most IPA(which also means that it is less overpowering on the tastebuds).

Hysteria (38) - USA - JUL 1, 2003
Medium copper color, slightly cloudy. Nice hoppy aroma. First taste is medium hops, not piney, quickly followed by pleasant malt flavor. Malt is ever so slightly sour and metallic but not objectionable at all. Have had this at the brewery in San Francisco and it makes the bottled stuff pale by comparison. Nevertheless, it's a great brew and I buy a few six packs a year.

I like the Anchor Brewery stuff. This Liberty ale is pretty awesome. I never knew it was an IPA, though. Now I know why I like it so much.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2003
On tap. Bright orange color. Nice floral hop aroma; the taste is well balanced, medium hoppy, citrus, full body. A quality IPA, not too over the top hoppy.

bowen008 (134) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Quite tame really. I really don't know what to think about this. I don't think I would drink this again. Its too mild to be an IPA but too hoppy to be on the level with "Steam"

Kind of mild for a IPA. It does have a nice bitter finish. I do like the cascade hops thereis a very good balance to this beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Theres a light haze to the peach skin hued body and a thin cap of a frothy, white head. The aroma has a pleasant balance between bread & caramel malts and orange & spruce hops. Light banana and hop dankness are also present. Simple, yet fragrant. Banana bread sweetness initially leading into a citric-spruce hop finish. Hanging minty aftertaste. Loose, watery texture of medium-light body along with moderate carbonation. A classic, certainly but its no longer pushing any boundaries. Still, clean and drinkable. 12oz bottle, pilsener flute, bbe May 09.
