McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 137 of 140: A pint of Winter’s Hollow Nut Brown which I enjoyed at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This familiar seasonal boasts a rich chestnut color and lacy off-white head. The extensive malts provide an aroma of graham crackers and hazelnuts, with flavors of toffee and a slight roastiness. The hops contribute a lightly spicy floral aroma, and balance for the malty sweetness. This easy-drinking English-style Brown Ale has a clean, crisp finish that may create a warm desire to order another.” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 14 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Pretty good ... a typical brown, thankfully without much coffee taste ... not sure how this is different from Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown.” March 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
