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.

On tap. Lovely deep red pour w/beige head. Aroma was caramel and grain. Flavor was sweet, but a strange twinge of sour in the backdrop. Not as hopped as I expected. Barely mediocre.

Tap. Red/amber pour with cream colored head. Smells of malt and slight hops. Tastes of toffee, slight hops with a slightly sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4oz pour at the brewpub. A red that lives up to its name. Clear deep red color. Rich malty smells the malts come on first then slight hops come on.

Had a sample as part of the epic 14-beer sample flight at the brewpub. Solid for a red ale. Smooth, malty, round, slightly simple, but tasty enough.
