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.

12oz can. Pours a dark brown with orange hues. Over an inch of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is piney hops with some light sweet citrus. Lightly buttered bread and some floral hop notes. The taste is pine with some wheat bread. Floral hop bitterness towards the end with some more malts. Flowery and piney at the finish. Medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. Overall, a decent Pale Ale that works perfectly in a can. I'd buy this again.
