Liberty came about in 1983 as part of the same USDA program that produced its half-sisters Crystal, Mt. Hood, and Ultra. Designed as a substitute for Hallertau, Liberty makes an excellent domestic stand-in for European noble hops in German pils, Bavarian-style lagers, Kolsch, Hefeweizen, Biere de Garde, and Belgian ales. Mild and refined, Libertys aroma is spicy, sweet, grassy and haylike.
