McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 86 of 140: A sample of Pau Hana Gold which I tried at the Inagural Edgefield Brewfest on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“Pau Hana, meaning ‘work is finished’ in Hawaiian, is the very first brew to come out of the Kalama Harbor Lodge Brewery now that construction is officially over! This light, balanced Gold is crisp, easy-drinking and perfect for whatever you have planned when the day is done. Or is your adventure just beginning? Whatever your plan, this beer is sure to keep you balanced on the path you travel.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 5 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Not very hoppy .. a bit fruity, but not overly much ... a bit bland ... fairly good but not great ... average.” June 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
