The Public is a delicious easy drinking pale ale made from a simple recipe of quality grain and top notch American hops. Tawny hues of caramel and amber are a trademark of the Public ale as well as a delicious spruce crispness resulting from a beautiful abundance of hops! Truly an American style ale for the public.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy copper color. Theres a nice three finger pale yellow head here, however it doesnt retain itself that well. Lacing, on the other hand, is good. S: Pretty typical of the style: grapefruit, pine resin, and floral notes come from the hops, while there are touches of biscuity malt. Key word being touches - this isnt over-malted, thankfully. T: This one is pretty floral in terms of hoppiness. Only a touch of citrusy character comes through near the back end, along side a minor surge of caramel maltiness. Id reckon the general bitterness is moderate; theres just enough malt here to balance out any annoying harshness without coming off excessively sugary. M: The feel has a decent crispness to it, but is perhaps a touch too astringent finishing. Still, I cant complain about its drinkability or carbonation levels. O: A well made, easy drinking pale, just one that isnt particularly remarkable or exciting. To be fair, though, floral, piny pale ales dont really excite me in the first place. Worth a try.

Draft at the Fillmore Silver Spring. Pours clear bright copper with a thick, creamy beige head. Tastes like toffee, bready malt, vegetable, and grassy hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like toffee, bready malt, vegetable, and grassy hops.

This is a not so hoppy APA. Great color, malty, with a hint of citrus aroma. Goes down smooth and crisp. If you're looking for hops, you probably won't like this. However, if you want an APA that is more of a drinkable beverage than an event, you'll like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing remarkable or memorable. Clean going down. Metallic aftertaste. Not particularly hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malvrich (277) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Can: DOB 2/22/16 so 2 weeks out of date. IPA glass. A: Seemingly thick, syrupy pour with almost no head. Tawny dark and hazy orange. S: Tangerine and faint honeysuckle. T: Malty and sweet flavors of slight roast and toffee although piney hops are there to offer some balance. Very underwhelming and nondescript though this can is quite old. M: Again, thick syrupy and flatly carbonated. Almost cloying finish. O: This may be pretty good when fresh but this can has showed nothing to make me buy again.

Bricks (1043) - Delaware, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Great amber brown appearance with solid head. Aroma of sweet, citrus hops with a bit of malt. Nice. Taste is like a subdued IPA, with a little bit of smokiness. Very smooth, creamy. Good one.
