A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #279 – Liberty / Brothers – Oh Brother Pale Ale

I picked a litre of this today (yesterday, the day before this post), on my shopping trip – a Liberty / Brothers Oh Brother Pale Ale, from a tap, Brewed by Liberty Brewing Co in the style of an American Pale Ale and they so that in Auckland, New Zealand not far away actually up the road.

OH Brother1

In special fuzzy-o-vision……

This is a 5.1% ABV , 153 calories a serve beer, making this about 4.18 standard drink units.

I was watching the cricket, and had to wait until 13 overs, thats about an hour, had passed before I could have my self-imposed no drink until the first wicket falls. This could have been 3 minutes though, cricket is like that.

Lightly hoppy when I popped the top on the growler, gorgeous orange golden colour, nice carbonation, and a smallish head, the days of the big head appear behind me and I didn’t bring the lucky timber home from the beach

This is a lovely mildly hoppy beer, with some nice floor notes, and the soft carbonation makes it a really easy drinking beer which I could probably have a lot of.

I really wouldn’t describe this as a high bitter beer, and if you’d been a bit gun-shy about APA this could change your mind.

I still have it.

I still have it.

The pdubyah-o-meter has this at 7.5 which makes it somewhat better than good. It’s downfall is that this, although easy drinking is that it doesn’t have enough of a profile to keep you engaged, and a session whilst possible might end up with a bit of indifference.

It’s alright.


An hour later (he tried to convince you) as this warmed up the bitterness became a bit sharper, which isn’t a bad thing, but it means that for me the mellow sweetness moves backwards. This doesn’t change the way I think about this beer, but it was fair to mention it.

I drink this of course at whatever it comes out of the fridge at temperature, I might invest in a thermometer and that would mean more investigation about the temperature the brewer wants to serve this at, which means the right glass, and so it goes on. I think I’ll stick to the addendum method.


American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma.This is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads
