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.

12 oz can. Canned on 09/09/14. (Chevy Chase Liquor) Washington, DC.
Clear amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. Fresh hop cone aroma with some caramel malty sweetness. The flavour is a bit dark hopped with piney and resiny notes, mild bitterness and sweet caramel maltiness. A bit thin.

flying_pig (1419) - SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2014
355ml Can from Virginia, USA as a gift:
Hoppy with some pine & tropical fruits, there is some strong citrus too & lots of bitterness. Grapefruit, orange & lemon zest come through with faint malts & caramel.
Hazy, red tinged amber with a 1.5cm, bubbly white head that leaves some lacing on the sides of the glass as it slowly reduces to a fine lacing with some build up on the sides.
Bitter with plenty of grapefruit, resinous pine & tropical fruits. There’s some citrus before some pale malts come through. The hops definitely come through most with this one & it’s quite refreshing.
Very bitter with a medium body, maybe a touch lighter. Carbonation is good & it’s quite dry, particularly at the end. I enjoyed the balance here & there was just the faintest touch of alcohol but it’s a very drinkable beer.

Not a bad first beer from Washington DC, this one was very enjoyable without going down as a classic. The taste and smell were certainly hop filled & well balanced with the pine and tropical flavours offset by the pale, sweet malts which could have been stronger but were pleasant ones nonetheless.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Can from Drake - thanks Dan for the throw-in, hitting a DC brew for me! Pours orangey amber with an off-white head leaving spongy lace. Aroma has citrus, caramel and pine, with some woodiness. Orange juice, light pineapple, a huge caramel malty back-end and some earth/wood bring the flavor. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes more sweet than bitter. Solid, tasty, pale. 13.9

A@ SBWF 2014: rätt fräsch, tydlig humle, fin bitterhet men lite för enkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
