I think, in terms of style, it would come off as a kolsch/pale ale hybrid. Not that that's a bad thing at all. I know your IBUs are low, but Amarillo just has that American ale flavor and aroma. If you're not gonna comp with it, it doesn't matter.
Thanks Hoosier. I would think it would be closer to a blonde than a pale but I understand the point. I should just leave kolsch out of it and ask for advice regarding this 'ale'. Any input on the hop schedule to meet my goals? Getting the hops right is always the hardest part of recipes for me.
I am thinking about changing it to:
12 IBUs Spalt FWH
14 g Spalt 20 min
28 g Amarillo 5 min
Ballast Point has a beer which is designated as a 'pale ale'. I was always disappointed in it assuming it was supposed to be an APA. Years later, I discovered it is actually a kolsch which explains my confusion. If I called this beer a pale ale, my friends would be extremely disappointed..haha
