McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 92 of 140: A pint of Raging Leprechaun Irish Red ale I had at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“Just in time for St. Patty’s Day, this malt-​forward ale displays notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee and a hint of rum raisin before fading to a dry, crisp finish. Behind this rich malty foreground dances the faint notes of Goldings hops, while a robust white head hides a radiant amber-colored body below. Thanks to the use of brewing salts, Raging Leprechaun Red uses the same brewing water as Dublin, Ireland to simulate the authentic taste of a true Irish ale! Sure to calm even the angriest imp, expect this malty¬†easy-drinking delight to pair well with any variety of savory¬†Irish dishes.” Measurements: 6.5% ABV • 25 IBU
My notes from that day read: “With the way it is described and how it tastes, this seems closer to a porter than other red ales I have had. It was OK, but not great ... I don’t think I would order it again. There are better red ales, and better porters.” April 22, 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
