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.

BierMeHoos (540) - Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Pint glass at 100 Montaditos in the Navy Yard, DC. Appearance is cloudy, almost medium color, full finger of white-head. The aroma is very aromatic, with strong, floral, aromas of grass, pine, citrus, and hops. Taste is similar to aroma, plus some bitter. Palate is medium-bodied. Overall this is a pretty good beer, Id definitely drink it again and again.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2015
12 oz at Jaleo in D.C. Pours a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is a little bit grassy and hops and a little malt. Taste is a little bit hoppy but really just kind of the standard pale ale.

Good citrus aroma. Taste is bitter and unbalanced for a pale. Flavor is okay at first, but lingering bitterness on the tongue is a problem. Probably not one Id buy again. (this was from a can, perhaps better in other forms).

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Can... Pours hazy and orange with zillions of brown floaties and a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Good retention. The nose is an assortment of citrusy grapefruit, spicy and grassy hops, and crunchy, cookie-like malts. Full-bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Pithy, dry, resiny bitterness in both the flavor and snappy finish. A bit tongue-numbing, but its washing down this pizza just fine. Can courtesy of ygtbsm94!

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a hazy deep gold. Little to no head at all. Aroma just smells like dust and old cardboard. Aroma mirrors the aroma but add yeast into it.

Big fluffy eggshell head from 12oz can. Big pine aroma, strong and pleasant. Background citrus. Orange color. Somewhat odd taste...some bitter in the finish, but the middle has some astringency and...? Faint cracker, some garlic, and...more pine?

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Draft at a bar in the DC Convention Center area. Pours golden orange with a small, super creamy head. Nice lightly floral aroma with a hint of citrus and bready malts. Flavor follows with light citrus, good bite for an APA, light caramel sweetness. Just a hint of weird aftertaste but not offputting or super unpleasant. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Good every day brew for the peeps inside the beltway.
