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.

{Served at McNellie’s, on cask.} Pours a golden, burnt amber color with ruby highlights. A one finger+ head of creamy tan foam. Retention is fairly good. The lacing is great and leaves a ’wall’ almost all the way down the glass. A nice hoppy presence in the nose. Citrus and earthy hops notes are both plentiful. Also, a light touch of caramel toasted malts is here. A mild, but inviting nose. This has a mild, smooth flavor. It also has excellent balance. There is a nice, mild, malt sweetness. It is perfectly balanced by a nice hops kiss. Everything plays well with each other and no one trys to dominate. Medium bodied and very smooooth. A very nice, light creaminess to it. This has a low carbonation level with serves it greatly. This is one super-easy, smooth drinking brew. It has such great balance. The bottled and draft versions are easy enough to drink already. This cask version is a super-session brew. Marshall is kicking ass with the cask ales, definitely! Thank you, Eric & Company.

Bomber from Soonah - thanks for yet another beer, John! Lightly hazed, orange tinged amber with a big beige head. Odd nose, somewhat floral and earthy, a tad perfume like. Flavor is grassy hop and toasty malt, a bit earthy. Herbal finish, some pepper late. interesting and very sessionable brew.

22oz bomber topped in green wax, shared by Georgiabeer - thanks Robert! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a creamy beige head that shows impressive staying power and very good lacing. Great pour on this one. Aroma starts with some citrus and grassy hops and a decent toasted caramel malt presence as well. There are also hints of light fruits in there that lend a faint sweetness to the aroma. The taste again has an impressive hop presence up front, lots of citrus and some grassy undertones. The toasted malt presence forms a solid backbone and the finish is bitter with hops and lightly sweet with fruits. The mouthfeel is lively with strong carbonation and dry in the finish. Very, very impressed with this beer, especially as I’d never heard of the brewer before we cracked this bottle. A top tier bitter with an impressive hop profile and super high drinkability.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Pours a hazy golden brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is very nice with grassy hop smells as well as some malt. The flavor is malty sweetness with toffee and biscuit malt. There is a nice amount of hop bitterness to balance things out and you also get some spiciness towards the end. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.
