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.

A bit heavy on crystal and/or amber malts, but good balance and drinkability overall. A fairly classic take on the american original.

OldMrCrow (2305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Airport bar at Reagan National

Quite a dark copper pour for a pale ale, decent hopping but well short of IPA territory, easy to drink but heavy on the caramel malt.

guzzler67 (1639) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Hazed, reddish amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Aroma of resinous hops and caramel malts. Taste focuses on citrus, more so than in the aroma, but remains nicely balanced by a rich malt backbone. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel leading to an average length finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Alexey’s place. Thanks guys. Hazy copper with huge frothy off-white head. Soapy aroma with notes of lemon, flowers and grassy hops. Very bitter flavor with grassy hops, citrus, some flowers, dry, lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied. Fun to drink.
