This was a nice a simple style, suitable for all the men in uniform. Nice florals and hops on the nose. Amber color. Nice balanced taste. Not too thin on the palate. A good, drinkable pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Publick House. They call this a Double Pale Ale. Arrived a mostly clear gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with notes of citrus, apples and pears. The flavor begins with a solid dose of malt with just a bit of caramel. This is followed by an equally solid offering of fruity hops accompanied by mild-moderate bitterness. I especially like that the bitterness is not accompanied by the typical citrus pith and is instead flavorful. A bit of bread emerges in the aftertaste as the beer warms. Medium bodied. Great beer to have with a plate of wings.
