Citadel Summer Amber

Classification: pale ale, extract

Source: Phillip Seitz ( Issue #945, 8/11/92

The idea was to combine the gravity and carbonation of an English mild with the color and flavor of a Pacific Northwest amber (Hale's Moss Bay Extra is my favorite). The hop bitterness and flavor is quite citrus- like, and dominates the flavor profile. This is rather standard for West Coast beers but pretty explosive in comparison to ordinary commercial brews. It turned out quite nicely, and amazingly fast: from kettle to beer glass in 15 days. Cheap, too.

Ingredients: (for 15 gallons)
