This luxurious and chocolatey brew meters out as a "5" on the mouthfeel, one of the few top marks this reviewer has ever handed out. Lots of lacing, all the way to the bottom of the glass. The only thing that keeps this pop away from the Chimay-level is its appearance, which is reminiscent of the Cuyahoga River circa 1978. Bravo to you Mac, bravo to you Jack.

One can find this brew on tap in many establishments in the Northwest. This African Amber is copper in color with a minimal head. The smell is that of mild hops. By far and away one of the most balanced beers I've enjoyed. Barley and citrus flavors can be picked out, while the hoppy taste diminishes quickly. Mac & Jack's African Ale is not as ferocious as the lion on the tap may seem, but it is certainly one of my favorites.
