Palo Alto Brewing Co. Hoppy Ending Pale Ale
A- Sweet head! Thick head retention, 1 ½ inch thick, delicate lacing. Yellow amber color, not completely clear

S- I don’t smell anything! Even after trying desperately to find something distinctive.

T- Just flat. Okay mouth, definitely not what you’d hope for from a pale ale.

Poured minimal head on a hazy, straw colored body.
The aroma is faint, but a little grain and lemon is there.
The taste is disjointed. Starts with mild lemon bitterness, moves to a strong, metallic bitterness at the end. Not particularly enjoyable.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The bitterness at the finish lacked balance. Not sure I'm going to finish it.

Clear amber colored ale with just a little chill haze. Small white colored head, pretty average looking.

The scent is light Northwestern style hop. Grapefruit and pine with a grassy scent you would expect from a noble hop variety. Mild toasted grain.

Starts out woody and dry with a mainly toasted grain flavor. Faint sweetness and medium level of bitterness. Pretty basic pale ale here, but it doesn't really standout as being something special.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall this is an OK APA. The problem with that is it just doesn't standout in anyway.

12 oz bought from "Lifesource" in Salem. $1.69 Poured into my favourite Santiam brewing nonic. Darker golden coloured body with a half inch white frothy head atop. Strange sort of composted soil aroma, some citrus hop..strange but not unpleasant. Taste has also some of the earthiness but its balanced by a bright citrus hoppiness..it actually works! Mouthfeel is fine honey smooth and long wet. A strange beer that was OK but might have been past its best
