Just like you, but different
Well more accurately – Liberty Uprising West Auckland Pale Ale – all rise… A present from the boy child, a very welcome one, he does go out of his way to find something I’ve not had before, I brought him up proper.
Canned Craft beer, 440ml, with 5.7% ABV, so that’s about 171 calories a serve size, this would be 2 standard drink units in NZ.
Brewed by Liberty Brewing Company this one is in the style that is an India Pale Ale (IPA) and they are local, being in Auckland, New Zealand
Our once grand old public houses now stand filled with flavourless brown froth.
A pitiful reward for our hard working West Auckland brethren!
The time has come for an uprising against this opression by scheming central city capitalist corporations who dribble Westies beer made by enslaved machines!
The uprising has started. This no nonsense pale ale is fresh, savoury and brimming with a healthy bite of spring onion.
Join the uprising! Prohopetarians unite! Save West Auckland from mediocrity, follow the true path to rewarding ales my comrades!
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Back to the hoppy beer, a burst of grass green goodness escapes from the can with a crack.
A lovely hazelnut brown rich colour of a pour of beer, aroma is bursting of grass hops.
Then I drink …. and I think it has one dimensional bitterness about it though, and could carry more malt middle. The bitterness although insistent isn’t big or over whelming
I’m not sure you’d lead a revolution with this though, it’s a bit safe, a bit mainstream.
Nice though, drinkable and enjoyable. Nice enough to find myself quaffing madly and enjoying without drama, and I’m trying to take it slowly. Perhaps there is something in the easy going nature of this, that if removed would start a ripple.
This has become a brewers staple and is widely available in cans and bottles, I don’t recall seeing it on tap anywhere, but then it’s not like I look all the time *
*I look all the time at the local tap bar places where they have an online notification, where they don’t I don’t visit, it’s pretty easy.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. It’s nice beer, but nice is all it is, I think that it could stand up to more malt in the middle, but that’s just me, and I’m not an expert. The mouthfeel could perhaps do with something though.

India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
