I need to preface my comments by letting you know that, living in the Seattle area, I am able to make a direct comparison to the real Mac and Jack's. The AHB version is a nice amber ale, but not true to the actual Mac and Jack's. Color and mouthfeel are right on. The AHB version is noticeably more citrus. I also felt that the base malts were a bit lacking as compared to the original. I believe that the real thing uses Maris Otter malts, lending a richer flavor. I really believe that this could hit the mark with some minor changes.
