Publican House Square Nail Pale Ale

Ontario, 5.9% alc./vol.
Style: American pale ale

Peterborough’s The Publican House Brewery opened its doors to thirsty locals in late 2008, and they did us a great favour back in 2010 by personally driving some of their kegs over to us in Toronto. Now it's back, and we think they even hired a delivery guy. Dominated by Cascade hops, the aromas are the classic one-two punch of grapefruit and pine, but the taste is restrained, with toasted malt, nuts and fruit backed by moderate bitterness.
