12 oz bottle. Aroma was mellow, smooth. Notes of hops and malts. Flavor was good, though pretty standard.

On draught at the pub. A light color, light tasting beer with no big characteristics to point out. If you’re 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.

Draft at McSorley’s 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.

Copper colored with small head which doesn't last long. Tasted and looked a lot like yuengling lager. SOme metallic flavors are noticed as well. Not very good.

Draft at McSorleys, where I think this is what the "light" beer is. Deep clear amber pour with a lasting two finger off-white head. Caramel and cereal grain aroma with mild earthy hoppiness. The flavor is big on caramel, grain, and bready notes. A little herbal too, not bad. Medium-bodied and slightly crisp with soft carbonation. A reasonable but not excitig beer.

Light herbal hops, malty, and a touch of roasted notes lead this boring brew. Easy to drink all night long, though.

This beer is a new addition to the McSorley's line, apparently. It seems to be contract-brewed in San Antonio by Pabst, but the real bar after which it is named is NYC's oldest bar. Anyway, turning to the beer itself, it is a plain, slightly maltier than ordinary, lager. Nothing special.

on tap at McSorley's: Light pleasant nose, goldish color and a big head. Lemony flavor and very little bitter. Creamy mouth feel and smooth.

It is not the beer why I always love to go to Mc Sorley's in NYC it is the atmosphere. The rudeness of the waiters who don't like it, if you just sit around, the saw dust on the floor, for the pukers, the rent of 1 $ for an ash try and so on, just a great place! Lemony fruity nose, also taste with hops. Amber color with a frothy head. Watery and thin.
