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.

A hazy, dark amber beer with a cream-colored head. Head retention is wonderful and a nice lacing is left behind.

Aromas are a very pleasant blanket of pine and citrus hops, with some bready malt undertones.

Sharp hop bitterness in the taste, but it's not overdone. The citrus and pine are the highlights as was in the nose. All-around a great tasting pale ale that could also be called an IPA.

Mouthfeel has a body I'd call medium. The finish is pretty dry and also hoppy, but has enough malt presence to keep the bitterness from being overbearing.

Overall a fine product that be suitable by itself or paired with a meal. Call me impressed!

Thanks go to Treyliff for the beer!
