McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 128 of 140: A sample of The Middle Bell Wheat that I tried on National Beer Day at McMenamins Monroe Brewpub in Corvallis, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“The middle bell rings out, bekoning you to sit back and relax, unwind and enjoy a pint. This light American style wheat beer is the perfect choice for any occasion, a touch of floral hop aroma intertwines with fruit and fresh baked bread. A light body that is easy to drink but not bland, truely a splendid light beer.” Measurements: 4.5% ABV • 12 IBUMy notes from that day read: “As the description says, it’s definitely light. But contrary to the description, I would say a it’s a bit bland as well. No Wheat beats my favorite Widmer Hefe! It probably wouldn’t be worth getting again.” April 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
