Brewed for McSorley’s Ale House, the oldest continuously operating pub in New York City. We brew McSorley’s Ale with carefully malted barley and European style hops to create a light-bodied, aromatic, Irish-style specialty ale. Craft-brewed with the same care and attention to detail that has made McSorley’s a regional favorite since John McSorley’s 1854 arrival in the United States.

A la pression. Bière blonde trouble, facile à boire. Une pointe d’amertume, un peu de houblon mais une rondeur globale plutôt agréable. La boire au Mc Sorley’s à NYC lui donne tout son intérêt.

Brings back good memories of hanging in NYC when underage. Love this place if only for the memories of a wild night. Motto of this place, if you aren’t drinking, you need to give up your seat and leave. Don’t remember much about the beer.

brings back memories of 2007 and 2008. Certainly not very tasty but not bad either, very good for a really really drunk session as the dive of a bar macsorleys is. Does down easily in a pub where the beer is not really the best thing about it

On tap. Pours golden color with fluffy white head. Smells like malts. Taste is malty and dry hopped. Balance, light, not bad.

Guessing this was the ’light’ beer at the NYC pub. A very drinkable session beer with more of a malty base. I preferred the dark.

Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.my God its only barely a month since i went alone to New York City and what a beautiful,unique,great blast i had myself,and since good memories are savoured with great moments and a great drink,i must warn you all that my review may be partial because of my experience.Well here we go,the beer didnt had much aroma but had a quite sticky and sweet -malty palate ,yeap vainilla and/or butterscotch may be fair to its description ,very little carbonation,beautiful tan body and white head when poured at the typical mug at that pub.What can i say? A masterpiece....pure and simple.

On tap at McSorley’s NYC on 29th July 2011. Quite mild-flavoured, light hoppy and slightly caramelly in aroma and in mouth, refreshing zingy texture but shortlived bittersweet end. A quencher on a day when it was 32C in the shade.

Kind of meh....had this on tap at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. But of a sour taste to it. No head to speak of....oh well
