Bagdad Ale is a benchmark beer for McMenamins. Inspired by the Pilsner style, our Bagdad Ale is one for the lager lovers.

A regular at McMenamins. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet fruity nose. A light crisp beer, fruitier than a traditional pils, biscuit, oranges, some spruce. Decent.

Had off tap at the Power Station Pub in Troutdale. Thin head with a hazy, copper colored body. The aroma is clean grain. Pretty straightforward. The taste is mild bitterness with a bit of lemon. Soft texture with low carbonation and medium body. Good and worth a few pints.

Somewhat of a hybrid ale. Pilsener body, but strong hop back. One of my favorite ales from McMenamins.

Draft at Edgefiled, hazy a bit on the orange side, it was light to taste with accompanying flavors to match.

Draft at the Edgefield location. A hazy golden-orange beer wtih a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet wtih notes of butter and diacethyl. The flavor is sweet again with notes of butter and diacethyl, as well as some oranges, leading to a dry bitter finish. I my opinion this shouldn’t have been served.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 Tap... Poured a light amber with a medium off-white head. Faint, leafy malt aroma. Mild palate, strong malt with caramelly hops to balance. Nice punch for the style.

Pours light orange with a small white head. Very watery on the palate with just a touch of flavor. This was one of the more bland beers i’ve had from McMenamins. Light caramel flavors balance citrus hops. They just need to boost this beer up a bit to give it some flavor.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2006
This reminds me of something from Saxer. Way too light in body, with some grainy toasted malt, and some very light lemon zest acidity.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Medium yellow. Light lemon, crisp light flavor... though not much going on. Decent body, but unexciting with dull wheat and grain flavors.

BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 9, 2004
On-Tap @ McMenamins Edgefield
Hazy golden color with sticky head & a little lacing. The aroma is citrusy & lightly hoppy. Flavor is full of 2-row and grainy malt. Tangy finish with more malts. eh.
