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.

The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as Liberation Ale, a Jersey-brewer. Pours a golden dark yellow, totally clear and still with a creamy grey-beige head that leaves full lacing. Aroma is light, touch eggy, white crispbread, maybe like someone's sweaty Lycra after a long cycle. Body is smooth with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is thin, white bread and glue, little pale gravel or sand and pale wood shavings, fairly watery. Just enough bitterness to round out the end without really being a feature of the beer. Pretty wishy washy. Drinkable enough and nothing particularly wrong with it, but wouldn't order this one again. (4-4-5-3-12=2.8)

wheresthepath (2371) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. It's a deep gold colour with a thin white head and a light but prickly fizz. Served in superb condition - this 'Spoons seems to be taking great care with its ales at the moment. Floral notes up front develop into a decent orange flavour with a little lemon, vanilla and caramel. It's slightly sweet with a tiny hint of dry bitterness in the finish. It's far from being a memorable brew - it is what it is, a lightweight session beer. However, the great condition it's been served in allows the subtle nuances to shine through, and I rather enjoyed it.

BeardedAvenger (1030) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Gift from the sister-in-law. Weak honey floral aroma. Light gold. Lively white head. Light bitter. Something malty drifting about. Does develop some sugary sweetness. Peach. Light bodied. Thin. Fizzy carbon. Abrupt finish. Has slighly more character than the previous beer from the same brewery, however it's just bland as...

Can. Strength according to the can was 4.2 per cent. Quite lively upon opening with a medium head.Slightly citrus flavour with a dry malty finish.Above average but only just. A new brewery for me and country number 95.

Itstasty (112) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Cask in one of St Heliers pubs. (Can’t remember it’s name). Light orange in colour with a small white head. Plenty of malt, slight fruit present and decent length of finish. Not bad at all

fintansbrewbook (5) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017 does not count
Being a beer lover, with a particular zeal for less well-known ales, I was delighted to discover that, despite its small size, Jersey can boast not one, but two delicious beers. Chilling in the hotel bar with my fiancée on our first evening in Jersey listening to an excellent local jazz band, I discovered the very tasty Liberation Ale. Light and zesty, with an appealing aroma and a slightly bitter aftertaste, Liberation is a must-try for beer-enthusiasts visiting the island. www.fintansbrewbook.com

lokis333 (563) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - FEB 25, 2017
Clear deep golden color with small white foam. Aromas of grassy and lightly floral hops, lightly citrusy, with light malty notes. Palate, light body, smooth texture leaving lightly bitter finish. Taste, lightly bitter of hops with sweet maltines and grassy/herbal notes. Overall, nice herbal/grassy hoppy beer with nice sweet malty touch, simple in a sense but refreshing and nice.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Nov 2010 - Golden in colour. Fruity; mild citrus orange. Malty; sweet malts. Hoppy; slight grassy hops. Sweet mildly fruity malty throughout. Easy drinking. (2010-11)

Jerseyislandbeer (10) - JERSEY - MAY 12, 2016
A golden ale available in bottle and on draft in pubs on Jersey. It’s brewed using the maris otter & lager malt, golden hops provide bitterness while Syrian goldings and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops provide aroma. It’s has a hint of citrus on the nose. It’s a morish beer, with one often leading to two!
