My first beer on tap!
Off the pour it looks smooth with a white top finish. Nice warm golden brown look.
Tastes amazing. It is unlike most other beers with a strong wholesome wheaty taste, followed by a satisfying after taste.
There are so many other beers on tap to try I feel like I cannot score it a high 5. However, it is also not served as a beer. I wish it was, I would buy so many of them. It is only served on tap in Washington. If you come to the NW, ask for Mac and Jacks and take what they give you!

A - Tawny brown and wonderfully cloudy due to being unfiltered. This is the sort of beer which makes you understand the whole 'liquid bread' thing.
S - Sweet malt pairs nicely with the minor spiking of hops.
T - Unlike so many amber and brown ales this beer does not short change you on flavour. This beer has a wonderful rich, malty flavour and then a little hops pops up to keep things interesting on the back end.
M - Fabulously thick and full-bodied for the style and abv. Boosts the beer's character, taking it further and further away from the mass of humdrum and watery red and brown ales.
O - A real Pacific Northwest classic. I drank this at Ixtapa. Coming from Britain I would not have expected to have such a good beer at a place like Ixtapa. God bless the Pacific Northwest and Ixtapa.

A- Hazy copper color. Thick head and heavy lacing.
S- Subtle, citrus hop, bready yeast.
T- Amber style malt, very light hopping. Some fruit, not much.
M- Relatively heavy body, light carbonation.
O- Good beer, not great, ubiquitous in the area, worth drinking.

On tap poured into a 22oz mug. Has a nice thick fluffy tan head about 2 cm tall with good lacing. Has a sweet citrus nose. Incredible taste. A combination of citrus, rich maltly flavors, and a spice note. Mouth feels is thick and smooth with a medium dry finish. Overall very enjoyable as I have came to expect from mac and jacks offerings.

A: Coppery. Doesn't look like a red ale. Looks like a hazy IPA as it is unfiltered. Pours with a thick head and leaves heavy lacing.
S: Subtle aroma but is very nice. Has some citrus and spices in the nose.
T: much like the smell but the citrus and spice character shines through.
M: Nice rich mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
