Nice amber ale, strong carmel sweetness and nice hop flavor w/ low bitterness Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2002
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 ’Session’ beer. AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2002
This is Mac’s 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.

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. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2002
It has a wine taste, sweet grapes. Too sweet for my taste. Very thin. I certainly didn’t catch all the hops it boasts, unless they are the cause for the over sweetness. proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2002
A nice amber. Light, caramel taste up front with a light hop taste on the end. Refreshing. pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2002
Citrusy flavor. A spicy hop finish. A little thin though. Alenightlong99 (70) - Lockport, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Interesting amber ale. Hint of fruity aftertaste with a smooth hops flavor.
