McSorley's Irish Pale Ale

McSorley's Irish Pale Ale is a Pabst Brewery product from New York and is 5.50% ABV, and has been around since 1854. This Irish pale ale pours a copper redish like color with a finger of white head that fades kind of slowly into a very nice thick lacing. Some light comes through the glass between little carbonation bubbles quickly streaming of the bottom. The aroma on McSorley's is not very strong, with a hoppy scent, but mild at best with a hint of pineapple and citrus. There is a little bread scent as well. The entire aroma is not so strong, leaning somewhat on the lower/weeker side. The taste is hoppy with a nice faint pineapple and bready taste. The mouthfeel is medium and coats your mouth nicely and fades somewhat slower, leaving behind a slight citrusy bitterness that is nice and pleasant. The finish is a little crisp, refreshing and the littlest bit creamy. The aftertaste of McSorley's is slightly bitter with a nice creamy faint pineapple. Nice aftertaste on this one, a nice solid pale ale. Overall I would give this an A-. There are better pale ale's on the market, but that doesn't mean this is bad or not good. Just a solid level pale ale. I would give or recommend this to anyone who has never really had a pale ale before. Could have a touch more hops to this, but is still good. Remember to come and see me down at Mike's Discount Beverage, 4700 Park Rd, Charlotte NC 28209 for this, McSorley's Irish Pale Ale. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
