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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2004
[Bottle 289 - the one pictured] An unclear dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of hops, grass, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy and grassy, so much that it bites the tongue. A very nice beer. Thanks to Jeppe (Bierkönig) for sharing this bottle.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Bottle #95/500. Hazy, amber golden with a small, rough, off-white head. Fat aroma of overripe fruit and caramel. Very solid body with plenty of caramel, overripe fruit and an almost burning alcohol. Spicy, vanilla-like finish with the alcohol really shining. 051007

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
Hazy amber color. Powerful malty aroma, with caramel, wood, light apples and lately some alcohol too. Good body strength, with powerful malty flavor and caramel/toffee, strong bitterness too; well balanced; the alcohol warms the mouth just a bit. The final too is well balanced, with a lot of sticky sugars and enough bitterness. Excellent.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. (#95/500, 2005?) Poured an unclear, flat, copper body, with a minimal, beige head. Rich malty nose, some alcohol, a nice sweetish touch, and some dried fruits. There’s also a piney hoppyness, and a hint of flour. The flavor is on the sweet side, with alcohol, pine and some citrus. There’s some oak-like notes as well. The finish has a little oxidation, as well as a lovely bitterness. Full, warming mouthfeel. A really lovely, mature barley wine. Why they brew so little of it I don’t understand. (071005)

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2002
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!

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 3, 2008
(Bottle #454, 2005 vintage) Pours a cloudy amber body with a spare bubbly head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel, plastic, cherry, and oak. Flavor of bread, toffee, caramel malt, light spruce/herbal, and cherry.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2004
(2004, bottle #431) Hazy copper body topped by a small beige head. Aroma is first and foremost that which I associate with barleywine. Individual components include medium sweet, caramel, plum/raisin, grapefruit, some orange peel, vanilla, alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, caramel/toffee, grapefruit, some herbal/spice. The finish is grapefruit and some pine, along with medium alcohol warming. Medium-full body, some stickiness. Good stuff.

12oz -thanks to hbmason for trading-pours a dissipating light tan head and amber color. Aroma is medium malt-toffee/bready, some spice. Taste is spice/herbal hops, medium malt-toffee/bready, alcohol. OK effervescence.
