Liberty Ale

Liberty Ale is a product of San Francisco's Anchor Steam Brewing Co. According to the label, it was originally brewed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Paul Revere's ride. It comes in Anchor Steam's distinctively shaped 355mL bottle and clocks in at 5.9% alcohol.
Liberty Ale pours a hazy, golden orange colour. It's comfortably carbonated and is topped by a thick off-white head. It has a bready, caramel aroma that is balanced against a hoppy base. The flavour moves from sweet to bitter. Considerably maltiness gives this beer a full, complex flavour. The body has buttery, caramel notes and the aftertaste is hoppy and floral.
This is a quality brew with a slightly elevated alcoholic blast and an interesting flavour. It's well-balanced and quite delicious.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
