Liberty Ale

Tonight*, Wheels is serving me Liberty Ale, by the Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco. The label claims it’s a “strong ale”.

It’s pleasant on balance. The first few sips had sort of a bitter “core” to them, but it’s settled down. The further down I get into the beer, the less unpleasantly strong it gets, though it doesn’t get bland by any means. Not a flavour I’m going to seek out, but it’s pleasant enough now that I have it.

I was drinking half a beer – the bottle was huge, so Wheels and I split it. The glass I had had no noticeable dregs, except for the last sip, which was a last, diabolical grasp of bitterness.
