Not the best amber on the market, but a solid buy. The aroma is a little odd, but the taste is better than average. A winner.

Big taste makes this Amber a good choice.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2002
Clear amber in color, beige head and average lace. Nice nose, malt and a tad citrus. Sweet malt start, medium top, nice hop finish, dry, acidic, moderate carbonation, a great íSessioní beer.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2002
This is Macís main offering, and its so mass produced now its lost some of it original quality. Still very drinkable on a hot day if you want something not so heavy.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Very clear amber with a medium head. Good hop balance; almost tastes like it was dry hopped while in secondary fermentation. Slightly complex aftertaste - the malt is quite apparent on the burp. A good, not great amber from Mac.

It has a wine taste, sweet grapes. Too sweet for my taste. Very thin. I certainly didnít catch all the hops it boasts, unless they are the cause for the over sweetness.

A nice amber. Light, caramel taste up front with a light hop taste on the end. Refreshing.

Citrusy flavor. A spicy hop finish. A little thin though.

Interesting amber ale. Hint of fruity aftertaste with a smooth hops flavor.

Deep amber in color. Slightly citrusy in flavor. Smoothly drinkable for this style, which I donít find all that smooth in general. Pretty decent beer.
