COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At McSorley’s ale is well. McSorley’s Irish Pale Ale is from the old house at home. Established in 1854 in NYC and brewed by McSorley’s Brewery in Wilks-Barre, PA. Brewed in the tradition of the historic walls of McSorley’s Old Ale House. It took 116 years, the pressure of public opinion and ultimately the authority of a court order for McSorley’s to surrender. By the mid 1970s, McSorley’s allowed woman inside the bar at 15 E. 7th St for the very first time. Ah, but the owners did not completely forgo tradition, women would wait until 1986 to get their own restroom.

10/06/2010: McSorley’s Irish Pale Ale... Aroma: Biscuit malt; floral and grassy hoppiness; edge of honey. Appearance: Very nice pour; rich golden color with a slight chill haze; fluffy and frothy heaf of beige-colored foam; moderate carbonation; lasting head. Flavor: Doughy honeycomb maltiness with a touch of toasty butterscotch in the middle; moderate floral and grassy hoppiness and bitterness; bright, leafy hops; dry, grassy and herbal finish; nicely balanced overall. Palate: Medium body; super smooth; slightly creamy; filling. Overall: Nice, enjoyable, mildly interesting; quite under-rated.

Caramel malt nose. Sweet malty flavor with little hops, dry alcohol finish. Does have a raw Irish character, but a bit too bland.

Not much. Tastes malty and watery. Macro tasting with a bit more flavor maybe nutty and grassy in there with the metallic sweet backbone.

hfmejias (784) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, copper in color with a nice off white head. Lots of lacing. Malty, caramel nose with some hints of hops... Taste is not great but it is a solid and drinkable malty (a bit too sweet) beer some hops are present but not that noticeable. OK Beer.

maekchu (2250) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 11, 2013
Bottle from Yamaya. Creamy, rounded whiskeyish malt nose. Copper color, fine tan head. Crisp, puckering pickled prunes initial / mid has a small carb burn and some harsh alc hits / finish is mild, with a touch of bitterness. Thin-medium body. Okay. Aroma promises a lot more than the flavors provide. Still, drinkable.

Pours copper color, very clear. Almost no head. What little head there is, is white. Aroma is nonexistent. What little scent I’m picking up is sweet wheat. Flavor is bland. Nearly no flavor at all. This beer is boring. Not sure why this beer is why wife’s favorite. It’s not that good. Palate, no taste at all. Very low carbonation. No lace.
