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.

Now this a good pale ale. Enough hops that they donít get lost in the malts. Enough malts that the hops donít overwhelm. Could drink many of these with a variety of foods.

Pours a cloudy orange with average head and lacing. Aromas of lemon, honey, citrus, and grapefruit. Itís hoppy, with sweet fruit notes on the head. Not bad.

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.

Very nice, hoppy aroma. Crisp, lightly bitter hops, light malt, earthy, pine. A very nice and full finish. Not too bitter or dry, the end of this one is very nice.

Thanks to deadCATAtlanta for bringing this back for my DC tick. Pours dark amber and clear with thin white head. Scent is wonderful. Taste is overly bitter for an APA. Bit of chalkiness to mouthfeel. Can - Gift from deadCATAtlanta
