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.

12oz can from Spirits Middletown. Poured an ugly cloudy orange/amber with some visible floaties and a large foamy off white head. Aroma is nice with old citrus, caramel, wet toast, and a hint of toffee. Palate is a little thin with strong carbonation and a dry lingering bitter finish. Flavor is great, bitter yellow grapefruit, dry toast, citrus rind, grains. Good stuff.

Light hazy amber color out of the can with a foamy off white head. Nose of pine and grapefruit rind hops. This is a very tasty pale ale, with strong bready malts and plenty of pine and grapefruit rind hop burn. Long bitter finish that is quite pleasant. If I could get this beer I would.

Pours a clear caramel/amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of floral hops and caramel. Flavor has tea and caramel with some earthy bitterness...a bit of a leafy/floral hop quality. Mouthfeel is medium with a bitter/earthy dry finish.

Last state for all 51. Can thanks to a friend. Crisp amber with a cream head. Nose is fresh, citrusy, slight grapefruit, and faintly bitter. Very smooth on the palate, hops are very floral, light melon, and a clean finish.
