McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 25 of 140: A sample of Cascades on the Horizon Irish Red I tried at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This Irish Red Ale uses Maris Otter Pale Malt to impart a bready biscuit sweetness to the flavor profile while Melanoidin Malt provides notes of honey and toffee. Cascade and Horizon hops contribute a nice mild spice that complements the malty sweetness in this beer.” Measurements: 5.4% ABV • 42 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Not so great ... too hoppy or fruity or bready or sweet or something ... I couldn’t quite identify it.” March 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
