First off, Liberty Steakhouse is a great restaurant located in the Broadway at the Beach section of Myrtle Beach. My family went there recently and everyone enjoyed their food -- from kids meals to salads to steaks to burgers -- everyone went home happy. Picked up a growler of the Red Ale and polished it off quickly. The brew pours a deep red with a slight head -- the aroma of malt is excellent. It also has a slightly sweet smell to it. The taste is malty, slightly bitter, with a perfect amount of carbonation. REALLY easy to drink. Highly recommended. Growler cost $13.95 -- and at the time (October 2012) they had a $5 off deal on refills on Tuesdays.

Appearance: amber in color with a 1" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface foam. Bits of lace dot the glass.
Smell: very mild caramel and a hint of fruit sweetnes are all you can pull from the glass.
Taste: caramel, ripe red fruit sweetness, and a mellow bitterness make up a simple ale. There is a bit of graininess here too.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smooth at the finish. Aftertaste is very short.
Drinkability: an easy to quaff beer. Decent flavor profile, it hits the spot when you are looking for a red ale.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a one finger white head with very little lace. The aroma was faint and of caramel malt with a hint of floral sweetness. The taste has a carmel malt backbone with a hint of sweetness and a slight hop bite. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation. Overall it is simply but solid.

A - Pours a copper amber color, clear, mild carbonation, minimal lacing and head.
S - Mild nose composed of toasted malt, rye, and a slight nifty character.
T - Uneventful. Barely any roasted malt or barley flavor, some caramel, mildly earthy.
M - Watery thin body, smooth on the tongue, fairly clean finish.
O - I hate to trash any beer but this one did absolutely nothing for me, I ended up leaving a half a pint glass, sorry to say. Not much body, not much taste, not much more to say.

Poured a deep amber red color with a thin layer of khaki head. Good retention and some nice lacing. Smells of caramel, malt, grapes, grass, and a touch of pine. Tastes of citrus briefly up front, followed by lots of caramel sweetness, toasted malt, and bread. Finishes with a nice bitter grass and fresh pine notes. Medium in body with good carbonation. Sweet and malty with a nice bitter kick. Refreshing and easy to drink on a hot summer day.

On vacation in Myrtle Beach stopped by this steakhouse/brewpub and was pleasantly surprised. First off, food was fantastic at this lace, but the beers weren't too bad either. I got a 16 oz pint for $3.50 (not bad for a beer brewed on site). A bit on the boring side, wanted a tad more flavor. Had a nice caramel maltiness and the hops were decent, but seemed kind of lackluster and reserved. Would have like them to really open up on this red ale, but overall still an above average beer that is good transition for those going from BMC to craft.

Appearance: Cloudy, dark amber body with a thin, creamy off-white head.
Smell: Sorry, but the aroma on this one was nonexistent.
Taste: An Irish Ale that's as simple as they come, with a hint of caramel sweetness and a gentle hop bitterness. Truly a discouraging beer experience.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Somewhat watery.
Drinkability: "Full-bodied and malty..." is a rather dubious claim. I see what they're going for here; a light, refreshing beer that's more of a 'caricature' of the style.
