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.

Daytonbeer (665) - Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Beautiful pour. Amber with off-white head and tons of lacing. Moderate to heavy carbonation. Aroma is light...grain and floral hops. Taste is very well balance and smooth with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Good easy drinking brew.

EithCubes (5090) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2014
12 oz can. Nose is very woody, dry with light citrus, caramel. Pours amber-orange with red highlights throughout, avg carb and a lacing, rocky beige head. Watery light body with caramel, lots of soapy / cleansing hops, low resin and bitterness, juicy citrus, plenty of earth and dull (decomposing) pine [actually, spruce does seem to be more on the money somehow], some spice. There’s some depressing sag in the caramel and woody/earthy hop character, but clean and easily-downed. Just wouldn’t want a second.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Can. 9/16/14. Pours hazy amber with a fluffy, dense off-white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, grass, spruce, juicy, slightly sweet, caramel; crisp and hoppy (as advertised!). Taste is a lot bigger than expected, huge up front flavor explosion; citrus, lemon peel, grapefruit, spruce, pine, hint of dry pineapple, bitter caramel, some roastiness; finish is long and bitter, grapefruit rind and a hint of roast malt. Nice lacing throughout. Full bodied and chewy mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Incredibly well-crafted.

Poured from can. Pours a coppery color with 1 finger off-white head. Aroma is pine/resin with some malty sweetness. Taste follows suit, with initial bitterness which fades out. I get a little metallic note near finish.
