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.

12 oz can at Marti and Ilde’s wedding in Maryland. Lots of nice fresh ingredients make this one of the better APA’s. Crisp and not too dry. Just the right amount of hops. Great wedding too.

Can into a glass. Pours a deep gold with a white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Light mouthfeel. Interesting, almost cheese-like maltiness. Not their best beer, but not terrible.

Decent beer. A little in the piney side but not bad. To me its more middle of the road then high

vlan1 (204) - 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.

AdamT (211) - North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2014
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.

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.

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