COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At McSorleys ale is well. McSorleys Irish Pale Ale is from the old house at home. Established in 1854 in NYC and brewed by McSorleys Brewery in Wilks-Barre, PA. Brewed in the tradition of the historic walls of McSorleys Old Ale House. It took 116 years, the pressure of public opinion and ultimately the authority of a court order for McSorleys to surrender. By the mid 1970s, McSorleys allowed woman inside the bar at 15 E. 7th St for the very first time. Ah, but the owners did not completely forgo tradition, women would wait until 1986 to get their own restroom.

Bottle sample from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, light caramel, earthy hops, doughy malt, light herbal notes, just not much to get excited about.

Transfer from BA review on 10-22-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Pours a clear copper color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave a lighter level of lacing. Smell The aroma is heaviest of a bready and caramel smell with some lighter citrus and pine. Taste The flavor starts out of a malty taste with a good caramel backbone. As the taste moves on some of the citrus and pine hop flavors come to the tongue. They are rather light in nature but balance some of the sweet and malt quite well. In the end, some of the sweet fades and leaves a crisper flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that is average as well. Decent of the style and makes it rather drinkable. Overall A decently tasty and quite easy to drink brew. While not the best it is quite drinkable.

The body has a deep golden amber color with a small one finger thick head on top. The head is very light and soapy. It fades out quickly and makes no lacing at all. There is a light sweetness with a touch of light roasted malt and grain. There are some light hop notes too which add light herbal and metallic notes. Its flavor pretty much walks the same line as its aroma. Mildly sweet grainy malt hooks up with herbal/metallic hop bitterness for balance. It finishes with some of the odd tangy metallic hop notes hanging on to the tongue. Its light to medium bodied with light carbonation and a boring feel.

Reviewed from notes. This was always poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-decent looking pale golden amber color with a decent half finger-ed white foamy head that barely lasted for twenty seconds. Lacing, uh...what lacing, there wasnt any. The smell, well, it had that soapy/British malts that doesnt bother me like it does most people, fuggles (earthy) hops. The taste was semi-sweet through the British malts. The palate sat about a light to medium and tried to show somewhat of decent sessionability but I found myself really only having about one in a time period. Carbonation seemed fairly clean and crisp and slightly smooth. Overall, uh...for the most part, just another regular English Pale Ale that doesnt excite but still shows its worth if one happens to put this with some fish n chips.

Standard bulk brew ale. Nothing special, but still better than the big three offerings.

355 ml bottle, paid only 178 yen for this one @ Jiyugaoka Garden. Pours dark amber, a bit hazy with a nice foam top - that is gone in minutes. Aroma is nice and fruity, melon. First sip reveals quite high carbonation that this beer has, along with a nice bitter aftertaste. Good session beer.
