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.

Served a nice dark red with a decent head that slowly faded to lace. Aroma was malts and grassy hops. Taste was of malts with a slightly grassy hop finish. Palate was pretty good. Overall, a nice red/amber ale.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2012
This was a particularly nice sample from Titletown. And all around a nice Irish red ale. Pours, as you’d expect, a deep red. Aroma and flavor are sweet, but balanced.

You can’t brew it any more generically than this. The epitome of ho-hum red ale.

tmoreau (3695) - 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.

douglas88 (8394) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2011
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.

Nice malty toffee caramel hints in both aroma and flavor. Would go great with food.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Reddish pour with little head. Nose of roasty malts and nuts. Flavor is nutty roasted malts with dry finish.

Scubatrip (610) - 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.
