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 into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy copper color. Thereís a nice three finger pale yellow head here, however it doesnít retain itself that well. Lacing, on the other hand, is good. S: Pretty typical of the style: grapefruit, pine resin, and floral notes come from the hops, while there are touches of biscuity malt. Key word being ítouchesí - this isnít over-malted, thankfully. T: This one is pretty floral in terms of hoppiness. Only a touch of citrusy character comes through near the back end, along side a minor surge of caramel maltiness. Iíd reckon the general bitterness is moderate; thereís just enough malt here to balance out any annoying harshness without coming off excessively sugary. M: The feel has a decent crispness to it, but is perhaps a touch too astringent finishing. Still, I canít complain about its drinkability or carbonation levels. O: A well made, easy drinking pale, just one that isnít particularly remarkable or exciting. To be fair, though, floral, piny pale ales donít really excite me in the first place. Worth a try.

Draft at Dulles. Hazy dark amber pour with a decent foam head. Aromas grassy and very hoppy. Fruit Loop flavors with more hoppy grass and bitterness. Very good for an American Pale

can - from sampler pack. Deep copper color -cloudy with things floating. Slightly roasty/malty with hoppy aroma. Pretty hoppy but not the best flavored hops. Decent enough. Slightly low carbonation.

chinchill (3012) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2015
12 oz can in Wash., D.C. - May 2015 canning. Looks great, with a slightly hazy, dark copper body topped by a durable, creamy tan head. Bold for style; as hoppy as many IPAs but with more balancing malt than they usually have. Moderate bitterness. Nice fruity and slightly floral aroma.

Can. Deep orange with perfect clarity and a dense, long-lasting khaki head. The aroma blends lemon zest, orange juice and mild biscuits; the flavor exhibits a lovely blend between bitter citrus and flowers. The finish is a bit weak, but the flavorís are balanced and bitterness is at the perfect level. As solid as a pale ale gets, but also very forgettable.
