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.

Draft at a bar in the DC Convention Center area. Pours golden orange with a small, super creamy head. Nice lightly floral aroma with a hint of citrus and bready malts. Flavor follows with light citrus, good bite for an APA, light caramel sweetness. Just a hint of weird aftertaste but not offputting or super unpleasant. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Good every day brew for the peeps inside the beltway.

Pours a murky orange-amber with an average head. Aroma is of hop; sap oozing out of fresh cut wood would be a little more correct, lol. A touch of citrus also. Taste has bitter hops, a little different than the aroma. Overall, good flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Hops come through pretty aggressively. Nice carbonation and feels good going down.
