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 hazy amber with a medium off white head, with very good lacing through out. Aroma of citrus and pine hops upfront with a good dose of caramel malt and yeast, which slowly intensify as it warms up. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast with a good dose of citrus pine hops, some distant notes of grapefruit, orange peel flavor as well. Palate is a medium body, smooth with a slightly sticky mouth feel, good carbonation. Finishes same as taste with some lingering caramel malt and hops bitterness. Overall this is a very good tasty and full flavored brew, very nice.
