COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 Iím admittedly not wild about.

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.

In the time Iíve been interested in craft beer, Iíve gotten over most of the common beer myths I once believed - that dark beers were "heavy," that skunkiness was just part of an imported beerís taste profile, etc. However, one I just canít get over is that a beer thatís on cask in a brewpub must be that brewpubís best offering. I walked into Titletown, saw a beer engine with this beer on it, and immediately assumed it must be something special. I was wrong in this assumption, and not for the first time. This beer is weird. It had a red color...like Kool Aid red. It had an extremely floral aroma. "Floral" usually describes something pleasant and hoppy. This "floral" is more scented lotion. And flavor was very much like juice of some sort. "Fruity," but like "floral," I donít mean this in a complimentary way. Mouthfeel was OK; it came off the beer engine - that means mouthfeel has to be at least OK, doesnít it? This beer was not very good. I had a Hop Monster after it, which was terrific, and made me pretty pissed that Iíd fallen into the "the beer on the beer engine must be goodí trap.

Draft at the brewpub. Dark amber color with a frothy, off white head. Sweet fruity bread aroma. Lots of caramel and malt flavor with a hint of some bitterness to help balance things out. Medium bodied with a dry texture. Very good representation of the style.

Had this one on draught as part of WinTour 3 at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Clear, dark amber pour with a malty, pearlike nose and a bit of spice, mild, but sessionable, and a mild finish. Very nice.

Crushed with Jakebra and co. at the brewery. Nothing. Compare it to Rogue St. Rogue, there is a world of difference. Not even close. Barely a hint of hops.

Draft at the brewpub. Toffee and subdued dark fruits came out in the nose. Poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. Sweet and medium bodied with light caramel and brown sugary malt flavors.

Usually after a few IPAs i might switch to a blood. Pours a dark copper colour with a full light brown head. Nice nutty taste from start to finish, smooth, not very rich. Another one of my favorite beers.
