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.

Christpuncher (2899) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
A pale ale with a lot of bite. Not very hoppy and kind of fruity. Not very smooth and is a beer I would not get again. Pours dark orange ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (3544) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 11, 2013
Bottle from Yamaya. Creamy, rounded whiskeyish malt nose. Copper color, fine tan head. Crisp, puckering pickled prunes initial / mid has a small carb burn and some harsh alc hits / finish is mild, with a touch of bitterness. Thin-medium body. Okay. Aroma promises a lot more than the flavors provide. Still, drinkable.

Pours copper color, very clear. Almost no head. What little head there is, is white. Aroma is nonexistent. What little scent Im picking up is sweet wheat. Flavor is bland. Nearly no flavor at all. This beer is boring. Not sure why this beer is why wifes favorite. Its not that good. Palate, no taste at all. Very low carbonation. No lace.

ryecatcher (1362) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2013
An interesting bit of nostalgia, that starts off okay (although not much more than some malt and generic hops) but then descends into an empty palate, and spirals out of control with a horrible aftertaste that reminded me of the formaldehyde smell from the frogs we dissected in Mr. DiTurnos 7th grade biology class back in 84. Yuck.

pivnizub (10245) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle(von Max sein Vatter): Golden to orangey coloured, hazy, small but stable creamy off-white head, mild to moderate herbal to medical and slightly fruity nose, light bodied; dryish mild bitter-sweet flavour; the medical impressions return, a certain fruitiness included, in the shorter dry finish. Average, but not unpleasant ale

heemer77 (5310) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep copper caramel colored brew with a long lasting khaki head. An almond and caramel nose. There is also some nice dough. This tastes like grapefruit and raw dough. This also has a woody soapy finish. Meh.

Bricks (1017) - Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Brownish, caramel.. super carbonation on the appearance with bubbly head. Aroma of some hops, copper and a bit of paper. Reminds me of a nut brown ale. Light, pleasant, a bit of hops and caramel.. not much else. Not bad.

n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On tap at McSorleys (New York, New York)
Aroma: Some resin maybe, but not much character beyond a base malt aroma.
Appearance: Light gold, with a thin white head.
Taste: Very light bitterness, otherwise theres not much else going on.
Palate: Light bodied, with a soft carbonation.
The lesser of the two offerings at McSorleys. Its pretty boring overall.
