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.
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.
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.
