3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
