American Pale Ale (APA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The Public Pale Ale is brewed in the classic American Pale Ale style. Assertive bitterness backed by C-60 and Vienna malts which lend notes of rich, yet semi-dry caramel. Then followed up with a nice white grapefruit and citrus aroma that begs for a follow up sip.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - cloudy and slightly orange in color. there was not much in the way of a head but there was some nice lacing along the sides of the glass

S- A very robust hop aroma. There is also a slight fruit/citrus smell to the beer

T- There are some biting hops at the front of the beer followed by a nice malt taste and a bitter end.

M - Medium bodied, good mouth feel.

This is a great beer. it is now one of my favorites as it stands out above the pack for its distinct flavor profile.
