These days, all you see are Amber lagers. I'm going to brew an Oatmeal Amber ale. I brewed one a while back and while it was good, it was under carbonated (this was before I kegged). So I think I'm going to give it a try again.I think I said in the other thread I was going to brew an Amber ale. Wouldn't mind getting a good Amber recipe down.
I'm with you there. Have taken several cracks at an Amber and, while good, none have totally thrilled me.
Last night I bought a six pack of Boulevard's Amber Ale for inspiration and I was underwhelmed. Too plain tasting. I don't want it to be hoppy, because it then essentially becomes a pale ale, and that's not what I'm after. I want something malty and full bodied.
I didn't even think of Breckenridge's Avalanche ale...should've gotten that.
