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.

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.

Cloudy pour. Malty aroma. Hoppy feel. Medium lacing. Typical of a pub ale. Should go well with everything. Very British.

MartzMimic (52) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a very cloudy dark amber with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malt, bread and tobacco. Malt follows through on taste with a bit of bitter caramel. A bit of oil on the tongue with some carbonation. Very quaffable beer. Nothing spectacular, just solid.

BOSSbrewer (1312) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pours a clear amber, from a bottle. Creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel malt and wet card board. Taste is slightly bitter with slight caramel. Medium bodied. This is a very nice and smooth drinking beer.

rosenbergh (6086) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Cloudy dark red colour with a tiny tan head. Floral hops, sweetness, mild bitterness and malt in the aroma. The flavour is bitter hoppy. Dark hops, strong bitterness and sweet maltiness. Strongly hopped ESB if not IPA... I guess...

jake65 (2532) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle: Pours a muddy caramel orange color with a small beige head. Faint aroma is seemingly faded florals... taste is rather mild too. Ever so slight floral bitters and modest citrus. Light bready malt. The theme here is mild...

artmcd8 (1300) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a murky brownish orange with a quickly diminishing head. Looks kinda gross actually. The aroma has some hops but majority is malts. Taste is malty sweet in the front and bitter at the end. Oily texture.

popery (1231) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours a darkened amber color, a nice, heavy wood tone. Quite cloudy. I can just see the shadows of my fingers through the full glass. The head is cream-colored and creamy. It’s a medium-thick blanket of foam that sticks on top of the beer for a good long time. Solid lacing. A doughy, rich malt flavor comes out as the strongest note in the aroma. There’s also a good dose of caramel and some light, earthy hops. The hops make a stronger showing in the taste with a gentle bitterness and a mix of floral, earthy and grassy flavors with a touch of citrus peel. The beer is drier than expected, which is a pleasant surprise. It has a clean, rich malt character that steps aside to let the hops balance things out. Very easy to drink. Relatively low carbonation. Smooth, creamy feel. It manages to hit a rather British-y balance, which is generally hard to find among American takes on British ales. Good stuff.

jsquire (3337) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Murky amber color with a quickly disappearing off white head. Light nose with some green hop notes. This is a fruity ale with apple, grassy hops, some pine and grapefruit. Long bitter finish. This is a nice full flavored session beer.

jkwood04 (3403) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours cloudy copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts plus some light, floral hops. Flavor the same, with a nice maltiness. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.
