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.

A- Medium amber body with a hint of haze to it. Some light shines through to show carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Huge, frothy cream-colored head that hangs around for the duration of the beer.

S- Piney hops, hints of orange and citrus, toasted malt aroma.

T- More malt comes through than the nose would indicate with lots of biscuity malt flavors. Some pine from beginning to end, with a blast of herbal hop flavors at the end.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth.

O- A solid pale ale with an interesting malt flavor. Full flavored, especially for the abv.
