Public Ale by Community Beer Co. is being evaluated as a Strong Bitter (Category 11C) according to the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

This beer pours a light amber color with a slightly hazy clarity. A moderate, off-white, sudsy head is sustained. The aroma of this beer consists of moderate floral and low earthy hops and moderate apricot fruit esters at the forefront. Moderately intense bready and biscuity malt with moderate-low caramel follow behind the hops and esters. Very light alcohol is present in the aroma as well. On the sip, moderately high malt sweetness is evident and on the swallow moderate bready, biscuit and nutty malt and moderately low caramel are very quickly balanced out by moderate hop bitterness. The herbal and floral hop flavors are slightly noticeable but get lost in the malt sweetness and hop bitterness. The apricot esters are moderately low in the flavor. A low alcohol presence helps the beer finish medium-dry with a lingering graininess in the aftertaste. This beer has a medium (almost medium-full) body with moderate carbonation.  There is a very light alcohol warmth that is present after the sip. The body and carbonation coupled together add a nice creaminess in the mouth. Overall, this is a malty Strong Bitter that is balanced out by a nice, traditional English hopping. I found this beer to be quite drinkable, enjoyable and a proper British pint.
