2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

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.
