1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear dark gold. Thin, dense white foam. Slight carbonation. Weak, mushy malt aroma, sweet hints. Bland, artificially sweet and loaded with wet paper notes. Medium light body. Not very crisp or clean for a Lager. Oppressively falsified flavors. Mild bitterness. Zero hop aroma and flavor. Finishes sticky and just...oh why bother. Totally vapid.

Applely overtures in taste. Can I use a word like overture in McSorely’s? Sure I can. On draft. Delicious beer you can bite.

Easy drinking malt driven beer. Aroma is sweet malts, appearence is dark amber, bordering on copper. Flavour is relatively straightforward sweet malts followed by a slight bitterness. On tap at McSorleys NYC.

Nice amber color with no head. Aroma is faint. Taste is average. There really isn't much to say. Good party beer.

Pours straw gold into the glass with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet and corny. Taste is much the asme with plenty of sweet and not enough bitterness to counter.

It’s hard not to be biased when the pub this is served in is so delightful. Pretty decent for a pale lager. Thin, but a a bit more estery and hoppy than your typical pale lager. Not overly carbonated and biting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a very nice dark gold color, but this beer is terribly average in all other departments. On the watery side. Malt and hops are downplayed here in favor of the chuggability factor.

Bottle...glad I tried it but it was a little watery for my taste. Good when compared with the mainstream beers, like Bud, and Coors.

On draft at the NYC Ale house. Good malt flavor, nicely hopped with a lingering aftertaste. I liked it, but perhaps my rating gained a few points from the environment. A great two hour experience, at a must go-to-place for any social beer drinker.
