COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Southampton Publick House now occupies the space that was once Herb McCarthy's Bowden Square Restaurant. Herb McCarthy's was the place to be in the Hamptons for more than two generations. Those who remember him still speak fondly of "old Herb", who held court at Bowden Square from 1936-1986. He was rarely seen without his Chef's coat and trademark kerchief.

Fiery amber; slightly hazy. Lots of bitterness. Hop juice style, but a good dose of thick chewy malt. Could be a good one, but it’s young now. $9 US for a 341ml bottle- yikes!

Sweet malty nose, hints of chocolate. Soft mouthfeel with touches of iron poking through. Finishes very rich and malty and could stand for a few years.

Neat strong head that lasted long. Ruby amber color. Fresh, smooth, refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 Batch 161: Mighty strong, probably like Old Herb himself back in his day. Herb ran a restaurant in Southampton from 1936-1986. I'm guessing he's dead now. This beer had some fizz, but was very much in the barleywine style. Fairly good.
