COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Public is a delicious easy drinking pale ale made from a simple recipe of quality grain and top notch American hops. Tawny hues of caramel and amber are a trademark of the Public ale as well as a delicious spruce crispness resulting from a beautiful abundance of hops! Truly an American style ale for the public.

Can from a trade. Solid APA here that reminded me of Dales Pale Ale - good balance of malt and hops.

Can from Whole Foods PM. Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose is pale malt, piney hops, mild fruit. Tastes hoppy, juicy, with some fruity and floral finishing flavors.

Now this a good pale ale. Enough hops that they don’t get lost in the malts. Enough malts that the hops don’t overwhelm. Could drink many of these with a variety of foods.

12oz can courtesy of Greg G. Dark orange pour, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white head. Good lacing. Moderate citrus hop (grapefruit) and lemon on the nose. Heavy bitter dry citrus hop up front with a light dry citrus finish. More malt on the finish once this warmed a bit. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation.

Can from HOTB. Light citrus bready notes. Pours a golden reddish brown with an off white head. Taste is slightly bitter but mostly balanced. Medium light body. Easy drinker.

A little dark of a beer for me. Has some floral hints and sweetness at the start, but ends with a heavier, stronger lasting hit.

solidfunk (3016) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2014
There is definitely a note of spruce here, as described. Good hoppy head with nice follow through of malt. Medium bitter finish. Very nice for style. Can at Solly’s.

DrinkinWell (174) - - MAR 4, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange with average head and lacing. Aromas of lemon, honey, citrus, and grapefruit. It’s hoppy, with sweet fruit notes on the head. Not bad.

vlan1 (154) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2014
Draft. Light amber/copper color with a fluffy offwhite head. Resinous pine dominates the nose on this guy. Taste is pine forward with a solid caramel undertone that doesnt outshine the pine. Very quaffable.

Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Grapefruit, lemon, pine, and caramel flavor. Very nice beer.
