Default My House Amber, an Alaska Amber Mod

Looking for opinions. I've brewed this twice and really like it. The official beer of Alaska is Alaskan Amber. Its good, but there's an after taste that I don't like. I found an AK Amber clone recipe and tweaked it a bit. I used BrewTarget to create this recipe.
