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.

Fruity (tangerine-ish?) and floral hop flavor and aroma. Some herbal flavor in finish. Fairly sweet malt flavor, with really light bread. Nice malt flavor; could maybe use a little more of it, though.

Bottle via trade sampled at home. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium to large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland, pale malts, somewhat grainy, mild floral and earthy hops, grass, and a light orange fruity note, a slight mineral note, not really anything bad, just not much of anything at all.

Bottle @ Motel 6 SLC. High quality livin. Copper in color with a sticky white head. Mostly just smells like sweet caramel malts and bread. It’s kind of citrusy and grassy, I suppose. Light fruity esters, perhaps, too. Has kind of a sticky, sweet flavor to it, which I don’t really care for. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Some woody, piney, and grassy hop bitterness on the finish. Not great, but I did buy this at a gas station in the middle of the night.

The first few pulls start out a little hoppy, but it doesn’t stick around. Good strong hoppy aroma plenty of malty flavor finishes smooth. Very drinkable would recommend.

Salt Lake City bottle. Slightly hazy good and orange color with a long lasting foamy head. Aroma is sap and pink grapefruit. Flavor starts out a little hoppy but finishes thin. Not bad.

I am not going to watch the laceing of the beer or sip it in between perfect bottled water. Sniff if it is floral or does not fart hydrogen sulfates at me. It is another good beer to have a few of with a meal. For 4% and a American pale ale I am glad I was not overwhelmed with the hop notes. Please try it when you are in the Utah grocery markets.

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?

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.
