COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A libertine is someone living free of society’s restraints. Similarly, The Libertine doesn’t constrain itself with preconceived notions of what a beer style should be. Loaded with malts that include the UK’s premium Maris Otter and Caramel 60, and topped off with Rye to impart a distinct reddish hue, the Libertine is a malt-dominated red ale like none you’ve ever had before. It boasts a rich, indulgent body without being overly sweet. Conventional classifications fail The Libertine, but who really wants to play by the rules anyway?

Nsanders (1144) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
750 mL bottle. Red brown with a moderate orange tan head. Caramel, grainy alcohol, light rye dryness, malty and light vanilla. Taste is sweet, but fades to an alcohol dryness. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

Tap at Northbound Smokehouse. A better than average red ale with a strong amber appearance. Light on the lacing but still strikes a fresh visual. Tastes mild without much aggression. More malt than hops but decently balanced. Aftertaste not its strong point...definitely leads with its best foot forward. A good option from one of the best MN breweries.

Poured on tap at the brewery. Nice dark coloring. Rich malt flavors and lighter in hops than many Imperial Reds I have tried. I like the reduced hop presence. Overall my favorite beer from Fultons

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 23, 2015
On tap at Luce. Shared a few with Kurt after the Dead show at Target Center. Deep, muddy ruby pour. Generally sweet. A bit of scotch ale to it with a touch of rye sharpness. Nice.

3.4
Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2012
amber pour with a medium almost tan head. aroma is toasted malt. Fairly one note but not unpleasant. Flavour is sour-ish graininess combined with toasted malts, somewhat bready rye finish.
