Brewed for McSorley’s Ale House, the oldest continuously operating pub in New York City. We brew McSorley’s Ale with carefully malted barley and European style hops to create a light-bodied, aromatic, Irish-style specialty ale. Craft-brewed with the same care and attention to detail that has made McSorley’s a regional favorite since John McSorley’s 1854 arrival in the United States.

Draft, at Comiskey Park, that's right, on tap at Comiskey Park. A great find among the too many taps of Miller Gangster Disciples and Lite. Has a nice fruity hop nose on a decently amber body. A sweet caramel malt taste with a banana flavor (or is that phenol?). Balanced with milder northern hops. A good beer to enjoy, even in a plastic cup, while watching the Sox "Mess with Texas" to the tune of 7-1! And on Elvis Night, to boot!

From old tasting notes. Labeled as "McSorley’s Cream Ale". Clear amber gold colorwith a whitish, yellow head and a few bubbles. Spicy malt/hop aroma has a touch of fragrance. Foretaste is a fine balance of sweet and spicy malt and bitter hops. Middle is sweet and complex. Finish is of medium dry hops and reminiscent of ginger ale. Light dry aftertaste is brief.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 On tap. Clear amber with a creamy long lasting head. Acidic malty aroma of commercial ale. Taste is fully malty, no carbonation, medium bitter, some notes of caramel. Ok with a burger.

Pours a clear light orange. A watered down and very faint grain aroma. A pilsner like taste full of grains and some malts. Lingering dry grain aftertaste. Very simple beer.

Tan pour, quick head.. Malt nose. Sweet. Middle is light caramel malt. smooth but unassuming finish. Good with conversation, weak on it’s own.

From the bar. Yellow orange. Foamy. Some grains. Nothing special here. Designed in bulk.

A la pression. Bière blonde trouble, facile à boire. Une pointe d’amertume, un peu de houblon mais une rondeur globale plutôt agréable. La boire au Mc Sorley’s à NYC lui donne tout son intérêt.

Brings back good memories of hanging in NYC when underage. Love this place if only for the memories of a wild night. Motto of this place, if you aren’t drinking, you need to give up your seat and leave. Don’t remember much about the beer.

brings back memories of 2007 and 2008. Certainly not very tasty but not bad either, very good for a really really drunk session as the dive of a bar macsorleys is. Does down easily in a pub where the beer is not really the best thing about it
