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.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces well. Citrus and floral hops on the aroma, a nice malt balance to back it up. Good flavor, some citrus hops, a touch of bitterness and resin, good balance of dough and caramel. Not bad!

Can: Copper/amber color with a small beige head. Decent retention and a little bit of sheet lacing. Aroma is ripe with citrus and florals; just a little bready and caramel malt to balance. The hops are more prevalent in the flavor than a lot of the APAs I’ve had lately... really refreshing. Citrus, floral, and resin. Malt is there, but in the background. Good stuff.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Can purchased at Total Wine springfield, VA July 2013 Pours deep orange hue with a small fizzy white head and no lacing. nose of earthy hops, lite pine, some medicinal notes, floral hops and some toasted and caramel malt tones, Very well balanced nose. Flavors of lite herbal hops, lite pine, toasted bread, biscuty malt tones, with some lite mango notes. A very well balanced pale ale here. Again, i think this sample maybe a bit old however, it has held up pretty well. i will update this rating if i get another fresh sample. Short finish with not much bitterness-lingering toasted notes with lite grapefruity hops. Palate is soft and very sessionable. Solid APA.

At Kramerbooks in Washington DC, on tap , pours a rusty orange amber color with a small head. Nose is a beautiful deep pleasant citrus. Taste is full of citrus and pine, and very drinkable. Finish is sweet and ends on the same tasting notes. Great lacing. Quaff Score 8 / 10
