I found this beer to be quite delicious. It had almost a fruity taste to it. It was not very expensive and the taste was quite satisfactory.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap- Served a black color with a nice tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt with a trace of caramel. There is also a bit of coffee and nut in the background. Taste of malt, coffee and some bittersweet chocolate. There is a nice bitterness throughout and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and smooth. Nice balance. Easy drinker, nice beer for the style. I think having this on tap at an Irish pub enhances the character of this beer.

Black color, with only a bit of light coming through. Light head and medium body. Modest aroma, but lots of roasted malt flavor---especially for a lager.

Lets face it, you’re only getting this beer because you’re actaully /AT/ McSorley’s! It’s the bar thats amazing. This is the dark beer there known only as "Light." It is definitely worth the 2 dollars a beer (and for New York City, thats amazing). It doesn’t have a strong flavor, but there is a great caramel flavor. This is a /VERY/ chuggable beer. Go to McSorley’s one night, you can easily kill a dozen of them in about 10 minutes!

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at McSorleys, where I think this is what the "light" beer is. Deep clear amber pour with a lasting two finger off-white head. Caramel and cereal grain aroma with mild earthy hoppiness. The flavor is big on caramel, grain, and bready notes. A little herbal too, not bad. Medium-bodied and slightly crisp with soft carbonation. A reasonable but not excitig beer.
