Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by the house ales found in the pubs of Great Britain and Ireland, McNellie’s Pub Ale is a traditional ale brewed in the style of a Best Bitter. Various maltings of two-row barley are joined with American Glacier hops to give this beer its color, complexity, and a bit of a New World twist. The Old World character present in this ale is largely influenced by its yeast, which originates in the port city of Hull, East Yorkshire, England.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. The beer is a cloudy copper color, and the first pour gives me a magnificent two finger off-white head. As I take my first few drinks, the head leaves large notches on the glass.

S: A good amount of fruit in the nose. Bready notes, along with just a touch of citrus hops.

T: My first impressions are earthy, caramel candies, and hops come in more in the end. I was cooking dinner while drinking, and I walked away and came back to it about ten minutes later. The bitterness had kicked into overdrive and it was quite a pleasant suprise.

M: Medium body, thin carbonation.

D: Such a smoooth drinker. Flavorful, rich, but with a low enough ABV to be able to go a few rounds. Also, this beer is a great value @ $4.99 for a 22oz bomber. An outstanding price for a beer this good!

An exceptional ale from Marshall Brewing Co!!

Pours a very cloudy dark amber with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malt, bread and tobacco. Malt follows through on taste with a bit of bitter caramel. A bit of oil on the tongue with some carbonation. Very quaffable beer. Nothing spectacular, just solid.

Pours a darkened amber color, a nice, heavy wood tone. Quite cloudy. I can just see the shadows of my fingers through the full glass. The head is cream-colored and creamy. It's a medium-thick blanket of foam that sticks on top of the beer for a good long time. Solid lacing. A doughy, rich malt flavor comes out as the strongest note in the aroma. There's also a good dose of caramel and some light, earthy hops. The hops make a stronger showing in the taste with a gentle bitterness and a mix of floral, earthy and grassy flavors with a touch of citrus peel. The beer is drier than expected, which is a pleasant surprise. It has a clean, rich malt character that steps aside to let the hops balance things out. Very easy to drink. Relatively low carbonation. Smooth, creamy feel. It manages to hit a rather British-y balance, which is generally hard to find among American takes on British ales. Good stuff.

Another fine brew found in El Dorado. Pours to a generous buff head that falls to a thin layer and does produce some lacing effects. Color is a hazy amber brown. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and English hops. Flavor picks up where aroma started with a nice malty backbone with caramel malt and Maris Otter malt with a balancing charge of floral/earthy hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and light, no astringency and appropriate carbonation. Overall a fine English bitter that takes regional standards to a new level.
