Non-McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 43 of 72: A pint of Occidental Brewing’s Kölsch which I enjoyed at Ken’s Artisan Pizza, on SE 28th Avenue in the Kerns neighborhood of inner Southeast Portland. According to the brewer:
“This is Occidental’s homage to the delicious ale of Cologne, Germany. Crisp and dry, it is clean and lager-like, with a pleasant, slightly spicy hop profile supplied by German Perle. Very sessionable.” Measurements: 4.5% ABV • 25 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This is a pretty good beer, it has a nice taste, but is perhaps a teeny bit watery. There are better Kölsches out there, and there are definitely worse!” September 2016.
