It is not the beer why I always love to go to Mc Sorleys in NYC it is the atmosphere. The rudeness of the waiters who dont 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.

Has a very nice dark gold color, but this beer is terribly average in all other departments. On the watery side. Malt and hops are downplayed here in favor of the chuggability factor.

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.

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

Draft at McSorleys (NYC). Not a lot of flavor or aroma to the beer, but the surrounding environment somehow help to make it enjoyable. There are some grassy hop notes and a slight green apple flavor to it, but not much else I can remember.

Nice amber color with no head. Aroma is faint. Taste is average. There really isn't much to say. Good party beer.

Faint metallic light grain nose. Small, quickly dissipating head. Clear amber hue. Light caramel accents...very thin bodied, not much flavor. Blah...

hotstuff (4959) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2005
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.

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...

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.
