McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 20 of 100: I had some Confessional Kölsch at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“Brewed in honor of the Old Church’s birthday, Confessional Kölsch boasts a light malt body, a mild hop spice and dry grainy finish. Great by itself or paired with your favorite entrée or appetizer, this light refreshing ale is a great alternative for those seeking the light color of a domestic lager with the flavor and richness of a craft brew. It’s not a sin to like something light, so go ahead and confess your love of thirst-quenching and crisp beer with a pint of Confessional Kölsch!” Measurements: 5.3% ABV • 28 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Really good ... nice taste, and not watery at all. It was so good that I got a whole growler for a special birthday (theirs, not mine!) price of $8.” I forgot to take a picture at the bar so I took one at home of a generous pour of the growler into a 21 oz. glass.
