ben4321 (4260) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/30/14

Aroma: The nose is lightly sweet, with a bit of caramel, earth, and some light, clean hop notes
Appearance: The color is dark orange-brown, with a small tan head and some streaky lacing
Flavor: The flavor is a bit on the thin side, clean malty sweetness, with a lightly bitter close
Palate: The body is fairly light, it leans thin, with a decent mid-palate, and a short, watery finish
Overall Impression: First beer from Public Works! Not sure this is something that would make me rush out for a bunch more of their beers, but not something that would turn me off the brewery either. It’s a fine beer, but not memorable. Gets too watery in the finish, which leaves a bad closing impression.

Travlr (13741) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber color, medium white head. Aroma of lightly spiced caramel. Taste is earthy, balanced, average, drinkable.

EithCubes (5104) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Nose is hoppy, fresh and grassy (and pretty green), good lively and bright citrus, little touches of crystal and toffee. Pours deep blood red with a noisy sudsy beige head. Taste off-dry with light resin, clean and stripping with little to no mineral character, hops are short and aggressive, malt thin but lasts longer. Medium body refreshes. A little unsure what to make of this, has some very good elements and a good ’red ale’ character that doesn’t come out in most ambers, but there’s some unwelcome twee and I’m not sure I’d reach for a second bottle despite good drinkability.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
murky maroon sepia, lasting thin cream film, decent lacing. citrus and chocolate nose, minty and sawdust dominate. Soft malt profile, almond and pumpernickel with faint sugar in the thin, low carbonated finish. Needs more expression, malt dominates.

annunz123 (893) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Nuts, grassy hops, and some caramel in the aroma. Some caramel sweetness and nuts in the flavor, with a little grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing spectacular, but a good, solid, drinkable amber.

Holdwine (1096) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2013
A nice enough effort. Pretty to type with a balanced malt approach. First beer from these guys. Hoping for bigger and better from this local brewery.
