A slightly smoked seasonal ale from Southern Vermont.

Comment: A deep red beer with a thick head, that has in both scent and taste both smokiness and fruitiness.  Both sweet and spicy, this is a unique beer taste worth trying.

Beer Review: Anchor Liberty Ale


A San Francisco treat!

Beer: Anchor Brewing

Comments: A golden, bubbly beer like champagne in a pint glass.  It offers a smooth, wheaty aroma and slightly bitter, nutty and tangy taste.  After sitting in the glass for a bit the ale loses it’s head and carbonation and leaves little lace on the glass.  Overall a good beer.
