McMenamins Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 264 of 269: A pint of Golden Autumn Wheat I had at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This American Wheat ale uses 2-Row and pale wheat to provide a golden color and haze to the beer, almost like that of a German Hefeweizen. These malts provide a light malty flavor with a bit of sweetness. It was brewed with Chinook, Sterling and Tettnanger hops to provide a slightly citrusy hop flavor. Fall is in the air, and what better way to enjoy the leaves falling than with a crisp fall beer?” Measurements: 4.8% ABV • 24 IBUMy notes from that day read: “OK, but not great ... a bit watery ... would probably not get it again. There are better wheats, like Widmer.” December 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
