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.

12oz can sent from Drake for free when he noticed the DC tick we traded for in 2009 didn’t count any longer – thanks so much Dan! Pours hazy orange with a one finger thick beige head that left delicate lacing. The nose is caramel, ripe citrus and light tropical fruit. The taste is grapefruit and pine with some faint caramel malt followed by a nice lingering resin finish. Medium bodied. Nice and hoppy solid APA – thanks again Dan!

Pours a hazy deep gold. Little to no head at all. Aroma just smells like dust and old cardboard. Aroma mirrors the aroma but add yeast into it.

Big fluffy eggshell head from 12oz can. Big pine aroma, strong and pleasant. Background citrus. Orange color. Somewhat odd taste...some bitter in the finish, but the middle has some astringency and...? Faint cracker, some garlic, and...more pine?

BMMillsy (1512) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Draft at a bar in the DC Convention Center area. Pours golden orange with a small, super creamy head. Nice lightly floral aroma with a hint of citrus and bready malts. Flavor follows with light citrus, good bite for an APA, light caramel sweetness. Just a hint of weird aftertaste but not offputting or super unpleasant. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Good every day brew for the peeps inside the beltway.

Douberd (2584) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
(DC Brau The Public) Can 355 ml from trade with vipinvelp, thanks! Served into a tulip, ABV 6% Dark orange colour on the body,almost light amber, tall and thick off-white head, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, light citrus, cookie dough, light orange peel. light perfume. Tasty, with some light malts and then hops, biscuit, orange zest, some light pine on the finish, quite bitter aftertaste with long duration. Medium thin body with a biting carbonation and satisfying dryness on the palate. Very good!
