* McNELLIES PUB ALE Inspired by the house ales found in the pubs of Great Britain and Ireland, McNellies Pub Ale is a traditional ale brewed in the style of a Best Bitter. Various maltings of two-row barley are joined with American Glacier hops to give this beer its color, complexity, and a bit of a New World twist. The Old World character present in this ale is largely influenced by its yeast, which originates in the port city of Hull, East Yorkshire, England.

{Served at McNellies, on cask.} Pours a golden, burnt amber color with ruby highlights. A one finger+ head of creamy tan foam. Retention is fairly good. The lacing is great and leaves a wall almost all the way down the glass. A nice hoppy presence in the nose. Citrus and earthy hops notes are both plentiful. Also, a light touch of caramel toasted malts is here. A mild, but inviting nose. This has a mild, smooth flavor. It also has excellent balance. There is a nice, mild, malt sweetness. It is perfectly balanced by a nice hops kiss. Everything plays well with each other and no one trys to dominate. Medium bodied and very smooooth. A very nice, light creaminess to it. This has a low carbonation level with serves it greatly. This is one super-easy, smooth drinking brew. It has such great balance. The bottled and draft versions are easy enough to drink already. This cask version is a super-session brew. Marshall is kicking ass with the cask ales, definitely! Thank you, Eric & Company.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Malt aroma. Golden bronze coloured and a little rich on the palate. Some bitterness and smoked malt flavour in the finish.

Ive had better bitters. Aroma and flavor are pretty muddled. Bitter finish, but not much else.

[Tap] Pours a translucent copper color with a nice white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, and crisp malts. Taste is pleasantly spicy. I get some peppercorn in here. Sweet malts and clean hop bite at the end. Good palate for an Oklahoma beer. A very good session beer for sure.

Light copper pour with an amber tint. Good sized white colored head and some spots of lacing. Faint malty aroma of bread, flowers, and nuts. Biscuity taste along with a mild fruitiness and a faint bitter hoppiness. Mild to lighter in body, a session beer for sure. Overall not bad, but it left me wanting more in the flavor department.

Bottle Green wax from Weskbob. Thanks. Pours a hazy copper with a decent off white head. The head is frothy and seems to last. Produces some good lacing. Aroma is of yeast, spices, and drywall dust. Has an okay carbonation. The flavor is of subtle sweet malts. Not bad taste. Has an oily texture. Has an average finish with a nice aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

22oz bomber topped in green wax, shared by Georgiabeer - thanks Robert! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a creamy beige head that shows impressive staying power and very good lacing. Great pour on this one. Aroma starts with some citrus and grassy hops and a decent toasted caramel malt presence as well. There are also hints of light fruits in there that lend a faint sweetness to the aroma. The taste again has an impressive hop presence up front, lots of citrus and some grassy undertones. The toasted malt presence forms a solid backbone and the finish is bitter with hops and lightly sweet with fruits. The mouthfeel is lively with strong carbonation and dry in the finish. Very, very impressed with this beer, especially as Id never heard of the brewer before we cracked this bottle. A top tier bitter with an impressive hop profile and super high drinkability.

Traded bottle topped with green wax. Thanks to ericandersnavy. Slightly hazy bronze pour with a small offwhite head. Aroma and flavour were spot on for the type and would make this a great session beer. For me, this knocks OK off my list too!

Caramel malts with some spiciness to it. Peppery and smooth. Delicious and goes down easy. Very sessionable.
