BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DC Brau Brewing Co.
District of Columbia, United States
dcbrau.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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 from a can into a tulip glass. Very average pale, wasn't blown away. Made my way to go out and get this when I heard some were left behind after EBF because DC Brau is not distributed in MA, but this was underwhelming.
