Amber Ale - All Grain Recipe Kit

Amber Ale - All Grain Recipe Kit 

Amber Ales are primarily a catch all for any beer less than a Dark Ale in colour.  Always an impossible task is to define whether something is too amber to be classed as a pale.  This style of beer tends to focus on the malts but hop character can range from low to high.  Expect a balanced beer, with toasted malt characters and a light fruitiness in most examples.  This Amber recipe has a good decent malt backbone with a lot of late hopping giving it a piney, woodsy hop character that isn't too strong behind the malt palate.
