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 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.

Great amber brown appearance with solid head. Aroma of sweet, citrus hops with a bit of malt. Nice. Taste is like a subdued IPA, with a little bit of smokiness. Very smooth, creamy. Good one.

Draft. Amber with white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is similar with strong pine and grapefruit notes with citrus and orange in the background and a nice caramel backbone. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and bitter pine aftertaste.

skmikeg (1709) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Pours copper orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, bready malts, grass, and some light sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking, well balanced APA.

Fruity, flowery aroma. Malty, caramel flavor with a little fruit and pine. Dry, smooth finish. First thing Iíve tried from this brewery, and itís a good one.

Can. Pale and crisp, plenty of hop and just the right bitterness. An added sweet and smooth texture caps this as a fine pale ale.
