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.

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 (807) - 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 (2931) - 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.

topherh (1907) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Pours brownish amber with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel and biscuity malt. Flavor is sweet and malty, toasted malt, light toffee, and a hint of bitterness.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours a hazy dark copper color with a two finger, frothy beige head that slowly fades into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Subtle floral hop aroma with an earthy/ herbal character along with some faint spice and dark malt. Hints of pine an grass along with some carmael, cocoa and toffee. Medium bodied with a decent balance of dry, earthy hops and slightly roasted malt notes. Piny and herbal bitterness but not too dry countered by a sweet malt backbone with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. Pretty quaffable but not something that I would want to have more than one glass of in a sitting.

Bottle - Strong caramel aroma and color, OK flavor, not quite what I was expecting from a British style bitter, but not bad
