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.

Somewhat hazy copper with an off-white head. Aroma floral and grassy with a crystal/oxidation note, not pronounced, but there. Taste bitter, floral, some subdued orange marmalade notes. A few years ago this would have been called an ipa, and I think that frame of mind was still prevalent when this was brewed. Not crisp enough for a pale ale, not quite hoppy enough for an ipa, this is a tweener... Not bad, but a little unsure of where it wants to be

On tap @ Tortilla Coast Washington DC. Pours a clear light Amber with a medium white head. Aromas are pine resin primarily with some tropical fruit. Tastes are similar but a little more balanced. Medium body, creamy with a long resin finish. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours golden clear, lacy head. Aroma is lightly fruity, spicy. Taste citrus, some pine, some malt. A very middle of the road beer.

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.
