American Pale Ale (APA)
Limited (brewed once).
Time for a special Pennsylvania treat, beer made with fresh local hops! This year’s first batch will be “Greenaway’s Green Hop Ale I”. Charlie paired up with Dan Greenaway of Greenaway’s Gardens to supply us with some fresh picked, whole Cascade hops. This beer was wet-hopped, meaning the hops were used in their whole form, not processed into pellets, and will be served on our hand-pump.

Served on hand pull in a pint glass
Appearance –Served a clear orange-amber colored brew with a small fizzy white head. The head faded almost instantly leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell was light overall consisting mostly of a biscuit and bready aroma. Mixed with these smells were some lighter notes of a citrus and herbal hop smell as well as a tiny hint of caramel.
Taste – The taste begins with a dry cracker and biscuit flavor with a very tiny bit of a caramel taste. The biscuit and cracker tastes are rather light but overall act as a base for the beer. A light citrus and grassy hop taste joins the other flavors more toward the middle to the end of the taste with any light sweetness that may have been present upfront, largely gone. With the loss of any sweetness and the light hop that comes to the tongue at the end of the taste, a dry and crisp, but quite subdued and somewhat watery, very lightly hopped cracker malt taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin and crisp with a carbonation level that, as would be expected for a cask, is on the lower side. While the thinner body was decent for the weaker flavors of the brew and enhanced the refreshing and crispness of the beer, a higher carbonation level would have been much more appropriate for the flavor and abv. profile.
Overall – The body and flavors were a bit too weak, with very little presence of hop even in light of its wet hopped nature. A bolder body and heavy hop build are needed to step this beers game up and make it one worth taking down over Otto’s other brews.
