COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
* McNELLIE’S PUB ALE Inspired by the house ales found in the pubs of Great Britain and Ireland, McNellie’s Pub Ale is a traditional ale brewed in the style of a Best Bitter. Various maltings of two-row barley are joined with American Glacier hops to give this beer its color, complexity, and a bit of a New World twist. The Old World character present in this ale is largely influenced by its yeast, which originates in the port city of Hull, East Yorkshire, England.

12oz bottle pours a hazy garnet amber with some wispy, white head. Nose of malt, crackers, bread crust, yeast, some light orange zest. Flavor is very similar, mostly malt, bread, cracker, biscuit, some light orange. Clean finish. No surprises here, but well made.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A - Slightly brown amber color, 1 finger white head. Nice retention with spotted lacing throughout. S - Toasted caramel, rich malt, dusty muted fruit, T - Smooth bready malt with toffee note swimming throughout, earthy... and I mean earthy hops swim over the palate, a flirty sweetness plays with the creamy body. Hints of subtle fruit add acidity. The hops start earthy and perk up perfectly for the finale. An incredibly silky feel. This beer is bursting with character, like it has a story to tell.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Sampled from the tap at rePUBlic. Pours a clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of nuttiness and a bit of smoke and backing earthy grains. Flavor has notes of earthy grains and nuts but finish has a bit of a monkey note. A bit odd.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Into a snifter. Thin head, deep copper colored body. Rich smell of caramel, fresh bread and grain. Rich taste as well. Caramel, mildly bitter with a malt backbone. Sticky feeling, medium body with low carbonation. A genuine good beer. The smell is outstanding and it has a great taste to follow.

Onionkid (359) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of malts and caramel. But there’s something kinda funky about the aroma, not sure what. Floral taste with malts and hops, some chalkiness to it and a watery mouthfeel. Pretty decent overall. 5% alcohol.

Marshall McNellie’s Pub Ale - Pours copper with smallish head and minor lacing. Fresh, mild aroma of bready malts and slight fruit. Some caramel malts, fresh wheat bread crust, and a tiny bit of hops in the flavor. Finish is clean and light as is to be expected in the Bitter style, and a bit dry. Good refreshing beer - very easy to drink and session. Comparable to Goose Island’s Honkers Ale.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and florals. Taste is malt, fruit, grain, hops, and spices. Enjoyable.
