What style would it be?
« on: September 22, 2020, 02:32:45 AM »
50% Pilsner Malt, 50% Light Munich Malt, with a little bit of unmalted wheat and flaked oats. US05 ale yeast fermented in lower temps (60F)

I made it up, but I wonder if it's close to any beer style. The beer came out great, but I don't know how to describe it...

Without knowing the hop schedule, OG and FG there's no telling what it might resemble. Look at the BJCP guidelines and figure it out.

 Style guidelines really don't mean much unless you're entering the beer in a competition, If you like it, that's what counts.

You could get away with calling it an American Amber Ale, or if too light in color then an American Blonde. Or a Mocktoberfest.

If it's not too fruity, maybe a Vienna Lager?

i can imagine it completely, but yeah i wouldnt categorize it. pretty free style, but sounds good.

discounting any major contribution from the flaked oats and wheat it would be a "european inspired ale". which might put in peoples minds basically an altish kind of ale but with S05 instead of an alt/kolsch yeast.

or you could make up a name for it yourself!

based on the color and lack of crystal I would throw out something like mock festbier? Maybe american blonde. I guess it depends on what it tastes like...

Not every beer fits an established style.   I think amber ale is as close as you'll get.

I think this beer will be hardly amber at all with that grain bill. More like a Blonde Ale.

Possibly an American Pale Ale, too.  Depending on yeast character...
