Bottle...glad I tried it but it was a little watery for my taste. Good when compared with the mainstream beers, like Bud, and Coors.

On draft at the NYC Ale house. Good malt flavor, nicely hopped with a lingering aftertaste. I liked it, but perhaps my rating gained a few points from the environment. A great two hour experience, at a must go-to-place for any social beer drinker.

Its hard not to be biased when the pub this is served in is so delightful. Pretty decent for a pale lager. Thin, but a a bit more estery and hoppy than your typical pale lager. Not overly carbonated and biting.

Had it at the bar in NYC. Teh bar is great to take in. The beer goes down VERY easily. Half head and half beer...makes you realize why its so cheap! Not a ton of flavor or carbonation, but a nice beer and what a place...

Applely overtures in taste. Can I use a word like overture in McSorelys? Sure I can. On draft. Delicious beer you can bite.

Draft at McSorleys Ale House in NYC. Small ivory head that mostly diminished, fine sized bubbles, fair lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a gold orange hue. Mild malt aroma. Malt and hops flavor. Smooth palate. Light body.

On draught at the pub. A light color, light tasting beer with no big characteristics to point out. If youre going to have this, wear a derby and sit at one of the tables in the bar.

This draft brew from McSorleys Pub in NYC poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and golden in color. Its malty aroma was very mellow. Its mouth feel was semi-thick malt with a mellow palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained thin mild malty hoppy notes and favoredhe malt.

Lets face it, youre only getting this beer because youre actaully /AT/ McSorleys! Its the bar thats amazing. This is the dark beer there known only as "Light." It is definitely worth the 2 dollars a beer (and for New York City, thats amazing). It doesnt have a strong flavor, but there is a great caramel flavor. This is a /VERY/ chuggable beer. Go to McSorleys one night, you can easily kill a dozen of them in about 10 minutes!
