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.

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.

mrbeer75 (2) - bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - APR 14, 2012 does not count
Aromas of a slight, fruity complexity. The perfect color of deep amber almost a red ale. Tastes, roasty and nutty, nice hop bitterness on the finish, over all great style, well done.

jrodooo5 (1019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 1, 2012
Aroma is full of malts. Appearance is a murky copper with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Moderate carbonation. A very nice, drinkable, well balanced beer. There’s nothing particularly special about this ale to me but it’s simply a solid beer. It has some bitterness up front & finishes clean and smooth. I could certainly kick back and have a few of these in a sitting. Nice job!

ReggieDunlap (3078) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours a clear amber/ruby colow with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty...lightly fruity and wheaty. Flavor is nicely balanced with earthy, spicy hop notes and wheaty, bready, and lightly fruity malts. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and lingers with earthy notes.
