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.

Poured a nice clear copper with a hint of red from a can into a pint glass. The smell was surprisingly floral and hoppy reminiscent of Imperials. The taste is mild of citrus fruit with nutty notes similar to an amber. The mouthfeel was quite dry with alcohol warmth. I felt it touched the front of the palate more than the middle. Nice malty aftertaste though.

Overall, I think DC Brau did a very nice American pale ale and would certainly try this beer again.
