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.

Bottle from Oak Tree. Bottle says Latrobe. Pours copper with a foamy beige head. Light roast malt aroma. Med body/foamy carb. Flavor is slightly roast caramel with some papery/nigh grassy hop bitter. Love the Old Ale House. The beer is drinkable.

355 ml bottle. Brooklyn, NY.
Cloudy dark copper colour with small to average off-white head. Malt in aroma. Not very fresh aroma. Dry woody malty flavour with some mild dark hoppiness and mild bitterness. Not that interesting brew.

pivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, 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…

3.1
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2012
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.

2.9
alexsdad06 (10431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2016
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.
