McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 16 of 140: Bob Loblaw’s Blonde was one of six samples in the beer flight I tried at the McMenamins Queen Anne Pub in downtown Seattle, Washington. According to the brewer:
“This beer has no time for double-talk and gets that inspiration from Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog: a stalwart source for judicial musings. In that vein, this brew is simple, but has a strong personality. This light blonde ale has a remarkable maltiness, from rolled oats and Vienna malt, that balances well with a refreshing hop finish. It might just be the perfect summertime beer.” Measurements: 4.6% ABV • 19 IBUMy notes from that day read: “It’s kind of like a pilsner, on the boarder of watery, but not quite ... I like it, but maybe I wouldn’t get again ... a bit too weak.” 2 August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
