COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tesco Challenge bottled beer challenge winner (pasteurised). Has also been available on cask at 4.5%.
Hop variety is as fundamental to the flavour of a beer as grape type is to a wine. In "Liberation" we have used Liberty and Willamette varieties to give an outstanding hop character - clean, refreshing and flowery with a lingering aftertaste.

Bottled. Dark golden colour with nice foamy white head. Very fruity aroma with hints of caramel. Flavour was more hoppy than I expected, but still very wellbalanced. The finish was quite sweet and left the mouth a bit sticky. Had the fortune to find one bottle of this in a local small shop. Would buy more if they happen to get more, the shopowner didn’t know by the point I bought this.

This possess a sharp bitter taste that was in danger of overpowering me.Lovely gold appearance but overall it lacks the complexity and pure class of their wonderful Bitter and Twisted.

rauchbier (3940) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2002
You have to get your nose right in the glass to spot the hop resin aroma hanging like a thick fog just above this beer. Lots more hop flavour but very little bitterness which combined with the fruity hops makes it taste like a sweetened grapefruit drink. Dry and stlightly astringent but still too sweet in the finish. A little more bitterness hops and this would be a very good beer.
