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.

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 14, 2012
Hopfiger, dunkel bitterer Beginn. Die Bitterkeit steigt, die blumigen Noten bleiben z.T. darunter verborgen. Dies bleibt für eine längere Zeit so, spät dann leicht hefig, die Bitterkeit sinkt zugunsten der Hopfigkeit. Nett! 8/10/11/10/10/10

MiP (15193) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
Cask, 6.0% dry hopped with citra. Good caramelly hop aroma. Almost clear red copper colour. Very small frothy white head. The flavour is nicely hoppy, caramelly and slightly piney. Also quite alcoholic, tastes of more than 6%. Must be the hops biting. Late bitterness, quite distinct and a bit rough. A bit flat, would have liked more carbonation even though it is cask.
