COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At McSorley’s ale is well. McSorley’s Irish Pale Ale is from the old house at home. Established in 1854 in NYC and brewed by McSorley’s Brewery in Wilks-Barre, PA. Brewed in the tradition of the historic walls of McSorley’s Old Ale House. It took 116 years, the pressure of public opinion and ultimately the authority of a court order for McSorley’s to surrender. By the mid 1970s, McSorley’s 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.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white micro head with excellent retention. Sweet and sour caramel aromas. Soft with sour malt front to back. Lasting vegetal finish.

Bottle at M’Coul’s. Pours copper amber with a nice beige head leaving some lacing. Aroma is sweet, toasted malty, some caramel and fruity. Flavor malty, a bit roasted, caramel, medium bitter hoppy, a bit grassy and fruity with the bitterness coming more out towards the end. Finishes bitter and sweet.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a white ring head. Nose is floral hops. Moderate palate, and the taste is kind of a muted floral hop with some grassy elements. Pretty good, and I bet I could session the crap out of this.

imo, i havent had a better, commercially available beer. I found it to be slightly better on tap than out of a bottle, but I’m a fan of tap beer so maybe it’s just me.

kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is slightly grainy and toasted malt with just a light hint of floral hops. The flavor is pretty mild, fairly bland toasted malt with a little huskiness and almost zero bitterness. Fairly dry at least. Light bodied and fizzy with a fairly short finish. Not bad, but pretty boring.

Very slight haze in a medium amber brew with a decent head covering and good lace. The taste isn’t the usual malt; more like corn (or who knows what?). Nothing changes through the finish. What bittering there is comes from light carbonation. The bottle label holds a little promise, but it isn’t fulfilled.

Originally reviewed: 3/18/09. Pours a crystal clear goldish orange. Decent foamy white head on top. Retention was great leaving some sticky lacing along the glass edge as well. Smell was of buttery biscuits, and this weird off-meaty scent. Malts smelled a bit odd on this one.

Mouthfeel was a little on the slick side. Carbonation level was low. Detected some biscuity flavors and hints of sweetness. They were there, but they faded quickly. Easy enough drinker, but I wouldn’t really want to drink more than 1 or 2.

12oz bottle poured into an English Pint. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of white head. Aroma of cereal grains and caramel. Taste is light bitter. Cereal, caramel and grassy hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’d gladly drink this again.

12 ounce bottle. Pours clear copper with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Taste is sweet malt, grass, and a bit of hops. Drinkable.

2.7
tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2012
Thin, light, pale and malty. Not all that hoppy. Very drinkable. Not a lot of character, but it’s meant to be drank in quantity.
