COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Publican is an American Pale Ale with moderate bitterness. It has a strong floral nose and a well rounded hop profile that travels from the tip to the back of the toungue with every sip.

Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is citrus, fruit, pine. Nice.

22oz bomber picked up at Smiths in Herriman, UT. Pours with a clear copper body and then gold edges supporting a semi creamy semi cobweb-y tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up sweet malts and some light citrus candy that seem a bit gummy bear like. The taste of this 4%-er is light and on the thin side with malt sweetness, light soft and not at all bitter citrus hops and a faint earthy hoppiness. It attempts to gain an IBU or two towards the finish. Not great but when you’re hampered by the Mormon’s and their silly beer laws, what are you gonna do?

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Bottle: so this beer is much better and quite good now. A rich fruity nose of oranges and lemon. The flavor is smooth and clean, fruity hops, light biscuit. A very good Pale Ale. On tap at the Bayou. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head with some lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma is comes in like a Golden Ale- some sweet banana esters, light biscuit. The flavor is similar; a dry palate, earthy sweet banana esters, light bitterness throughout, some mellow biscuty malt. Easy drinking for sure, a bit different for a Pale Ale.

Draft at Slackwater. Moderate amber color, thin head. Earthy character with a woodsy bite yet topped with a citrus flourish. Nice full body and fully flavored finish. (#4562, 4/9/2012)

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 ReRate from a 22oz bottle from the brewery
They have really fine tuned this beer since last time I had it. Aroma and taste is fruity, bisquity, light caramel and citrus. It is very smooth and easy to drink.

A nice beer, but is pretty light for a pale ale. Crisp and clean mouthfeel.

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a huge, uncontrollable white head. Crushed grain nose with some light orange notes. Grainy malts with some coarse bread, light toast and orange peel. Long orange zest bitterness in the finish. Okay APA.

Bottle from While Foods Trolley Square. . Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. Not a lot of hop flavor on the tongue finishes clean. Eh!

Bottle from a trade with Gription79. Pours hazy burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, sweet fruit and biscuit malts. Pale malt and citrus flavors. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Thanks Dallas.

Poured from a bomber thanks to Craig. This is a pleasant surprise, a great hop aroma right when I opened the bottle. The flavor is fruity, slight caramel sweetness, bready, and citrus. This is a well made pale ale. Well done Shades of Pale.
