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.

Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is citrus, fruit, pine. Nice.

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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Bottle: so this beer is much better and quite good now. A rich fruity nose of oranges and lemon. The flavor is smooth and clean, fruity hops, light biscuit. A very good Pale Ale. On tap at the Bayou. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head with some lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma is comes in like a Golden Ale- some sweet banana esters, light biscuit. The flavor is similar; a dry palate, earthy sweet banana esters, light bitterness throughout, some mellow biscuty malt. Easy drinking for sure, a bit different for a Pale Ale.

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?

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 ReRate from a 22oz bottle from the brewery
They have really fine tuned this beer since last time I had it. Aroma and taste is fruity, bisquity, light caramel and citrus. It is very smooth and easy to drink.

8/22/11: 6-3-6-3-13 3.1: On tap at The Bayou
Appearance: Clear golden with a nice sized white head and spotty lacing
Aroma: Banana eaters and citrus
Taste: Banana, yeast and citrus
A nice beer, but is pretty light for a pale ale. Crisp and clean mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A LOT of foam that is off white. Super thick lacing. The beer is clear golden amber. An aroma of citrus that is gentle and kind of generic. Some caramel and cereal malts. Feel is on the thin side. That citrus is tasted along with cinnamon and some tropical fruit. Light melon. Not a lot of flavor but, hey, its a 4% pale ale.

Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2012
Draft at Slackwater. Moderate amber color, thin head. Earthy character with a woodsy bite yet topped with a citrus flourish. Nice full body and fully flavored finish. (#4562, 4/9/2012)

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 This second time this tastes soured. A weird old paint aroma. This is a comprimise score betwewn the two tastings. First go round 3.3 This was a pretty nice 4% pale ale. Light with some hops, it suffers like many of these Utah beers in the finish, in that it trails away, which is certainly a result of the Limited alcohol content.

Huge thanks to griffon, Very light, pale malts, crisp, sessionable, very tasty
