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.

bottle. Nasty ass beer. Pale ale with minimal hops and rotting garbage flavor. Wtf?

An interesting bit of nostalgia, that starts off okay (although not much more than some malt and generic hops) but then descends into an empty palate, and spirals out of control with a horrible aftertaste that reminded me of the formaldehyde smell from the frogs we dissected in Mr. DiTurno’s 7th grade biology class back in ’84. Yuck.

pivnizub (8765) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle(von Max sein Vatter): Golden to orangey coloured, hazy, small but stable creamy off-white head, mild to moderate herbal to medical and slightly fruity nose, light bodied; dryish mild bitter-sweet flavour; the medical impressions return, a certain fruitiness included, in the shorter dry finish. Average, but not unpleasant ale…

Bottle. Deep copper caramel colored brew with a long lasting khaki head. An almond and caramel nose. There is also some nice dough. This tastes like grapefruit and raw dough. This also has a woody soapy finish. Meh.

Bricks (589) - Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Brownish, caramel.. super carbonation on the appearance with bubbly head. Aroma of some hops, copper and a bit of paper. Reminds me of a nut brown ale. Light, pleasant, a bit of hops and caramel.. not much else. Not bad.

On tap at McSorley’s (New York, New York)
Aroma: Some resin maybe, but not much character beyond a base malt aroma.
Appearance: Light gold, with a thin white head.
Taste: Very light bitterness, otherwise there’s not much else going on.
Palate: Light bodied, with a soft carbonation.
The lesser of the two offerings at McSorley’s. It’s pretty boring overall.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
1/11/13. 12oz bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a film. Caramel, hay, metal, and stomach acid fill the aroma and flavor. Ugh.

This is a nice cornucopia of off-flavors. Aluminum, butter, sourness, what doesn’t it have? Some pluses are the palate, which is smooth, and its appearance (what you’d expect).
