McMenamins Edgefield Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 98 of 98: A pint of seasonal Copper Moon ale which I enjoyed at the Black Rabbit House bar, one of eleven venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“Copper Moon has a coppery-orange luminescence radiating out of the pint glass, originating from three different organic malts that impart a flavorful yet summery smooth sweetness that quenches your thirst while tantalizing your taste buds. The upfront hop bitterness of Copper Moon is relatively low, complementing the malts without being overpowering. The hop flavor and aroma are another matter, as the Perle and Chinook hops used in the latter stages of each batch intermingle to generate a dazzling, citrusy, floral experience, in addition to slightly spicy notes. All of these qualities blend into a refreshing, flavorful organic summer pale ale.” Measurements: 5% ABV • 44 IBUMy notes from that day read: “pretty good beer ... could be worth another try.” Summer solstice, 2016. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
