I'm not going to lie...I'm pretty pleased that the African Amber Ale from Mac & Jack's Brewery is only available in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Not only that, it's only available on draft - no bottles or cans.
Mac & Jack's is brewed in Redmond (Washington) and I had it on draft at the W Hotel in Seattle. It poured a slightly hazy reddish brown with very little head. It smelled nutty and malty. The taste was heavy on the malt and kind of buttery with hops underlying throughout. I wasn't at all sure what an "African amber ale" was when I ordered it and there wasn't a description on the menu. Turns out that the first pub the beer was sold at was next to a zoo and all their beers have African or animal related names. Now you know, too! Overall the beer was very smooth and easy drinking.
