Has all the makings of a great amber ale but just not enough of it. Grainy, bready caramel cereal malt backbone with just a touch of earth and sweetness. Nice hop profile with light grapefruit and pine essence. Really nice drink - very much like the Mac & Jacks African Amber, just a lighter version.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
7/8/08 On draught at the brewpub. Aroma is rich and caramel malty with almost no hop flora. Appearance is hazy brown with a well maintained cream colored head and good lacing. Flavor is very sweet with lots of sugar and quite low earthy bittering. Mouthfeel is moderate bodied with a medium carb texture. Overall, just too sweet, not enough of either malt or hop character.
