BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Marshall Brewing Company
Oklahoma, United States

Style: English Bitter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Caramel color with a small head. It smells like what you think a beer should smell like no obvious aromas. A good beer taste its easily a session beer and very smooth with light carbonation. Would definitely recommend.

Smoky, tasty, bitter, puts me in the mind of an old world tavern. Nice.

On tap. Cloudy amber color with almost no head that leaves the tiniest ring of lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and yeasty bread. Taste is a mix of caramel and malts before a yeasty finish. Medium body with light carbonation. No bitterness or alcohol aftertaste, but it has a yeasty, dry finish to it.
Nothing bad with this. Fairly quaffable and definitely an acceptable attempt at the style.

Pours out copper amber with head that barely sticks around. Smells just faint overall. Fruity esters and toasty malts. Flavor is sweet with tons of fruit from the yeast. UK hop character. Flat overall flavor profile with an odd tartness. Mouthfeel is flat and light. Not impressed.
