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.

Draft, at Comiskey Park, that's right, on tap at Comiskey Park. A great find among the too many taps of Miller Gangster Disciples and Lite. Has a nice fruity hop nose on a decently amber body. A sweet caramel malt taste with a banana flavor (or is that phenol?). Balanced with milder northern hops. A good beer to enjoy, even in a plastic cup, while watching the Sox "Mess with Texas" to the tune of 7-1! And on Elvis Night, to boot!

Tan pour, quick head.. Malt nose. Sweet. Middle is light caramel malt. smooth but unassuming finish. Good with conversation, weak on it’s own.

From the bar. Yellow orange. Foamy. Some grains. Nothing special here. Designed in bulk.

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.
