McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 65 of 140: A sample of It’s a Brown Ale which I tried McMenamins Cloud Bar, one of four venues for eating and drinking at their new Kalama Harbor Lodge, on the east bank of the Columbia River in Kalama, Washington. According to the brewer:
“Hey. You like Browns? I got a Brown. It’s tasty. It’s rich, decadent and bone warming for cold spring days. It has a touch of lactose that contributes a candy bar sweetness and a light citrus flavor from the Norwegian yeast that we used. Give it a try. Don’t say we never gave you nothing.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 20 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Pretty much along the lines of other brown ales I’ve had ... too much coffee taste for me.” May 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
