Named in honor of the legendary Packer Johnny "Blood" McNally, this beer is a hybrid between and American Amber Ale and an Irish Ale. Ruby red in color, this brew expresses a complex and lightly roasty malt flavor resolving into a subdued sweetness that is complemented via the use of East Kent Golding hops for both flavor and aroma.

tmoreau (3266) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2011
On tap at the brewpub bar, and served to an imperial pint glass with a clear, deep copper/brown hue, a decent amount of light tan, frothy head foam, and some wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was toasty, with light caramel, and just a hint of sweetness. The flavor was similar, adding a moderate but firm amount of hop bitterness to complement the smooth malt. Medium bodied and pleasantly flavorful.

On tap at GABF, of course we all know Pittsburgh is title town. Anyway, pours a deep amber color with a medium white head. A sweet earthy caramel nose. A flavor of light citrus and dominated by sweet caramel malts and toast. Decent.

Scubatrip (609) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear dark amber, no nose to speak of. Smooth, sweetly malty taste, pretty good for a "red" ale at a brewpub.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2010
On tap at Fox Cities Brewfest. Aroma was of light caramel, some biscuit, and sweet malt. Flavors were bready with a nice balance of low hop to mellow out the malt. Decent brew.

nuplastikk (5370) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the OF. Deep brown-amber color. Amber malt aroma. Amber malt taste, with a slight soapy, spicy, hop edge. Medium to full bodied. A nice Amber, pretty right on for a style Im admittedly not wild about.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2009
On tap at Titletown Brewing Company. Amber with some red tints and a thin tan head that leaves sparse lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, a touch of roasted malt and mild floral hops. Taste of toffee, mild floral hops, sweet malt and some nuttiness. Smooth and malty, not a bad brew.

tap - dark amber pour with small white head. Had this many times and forgot to rate it. Aroma - malt and floral hops. Flavor - very drinkable, somewhat sweet malt with decent hop flavor. Palate - medium bodied with below average carbonation. Finish is smooth and has no aftertaste. Overall - I liked this beer, easy to drink and very simple. Reminds me of a homemade amber ale.
