Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 5 of 96: When I went to Roscoe’s for lunch on St. Patrick’s Day 2016, I had a glass of Royale Pilsner, made in Portland, Oregon by Royale Brewing. The beer was tasty, and not watery like some pilsners. I really enjoyed it, and would order it again. According to the brewer:
“Royale Pilsner is a Bohemian inspired beer. It brings Weyermann Pilsner malted spring barley from Germany, with subtle additions of Tettnanger and Galena hops together in the soft water of the Pacific Northwest. It is truly cold-conditioned, allowing for a beautifully balanced floral hop flavor and aroma, with a crisp, clean and refreshing bitterness up front, and still a refreshing malty sweetness that carries all the way through the finish, but doesn’t outlast its welcome.” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 28 IBURoscoe’s is located on the corner of SE Stark Street and SE 81st Avenue in Portland’s eastern Montavilla neighborhood, right next door to The Observatory where I had an awesome goat-cheese lamb burger the week before. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
