Anchor Bolt Amber Ale

Recipe added: 05/02/00

I have made this beer twice for company picnics. I have become the hero of the office thanks to this brew. It comes out very clean and refreshing. I am pretty strict with keeping my fermenter at 70F or maybe a little less. I have not gotten any off flavors so I stick with what works! I just did a side by side comparison with Full Sail Amber Ale the other night. This version is just a little bit lighter and more floral in the hops. I would not change a thing at all on this one myself. This is an excellent tasting, easy to brew recipe. Please e-mail me if you make this and let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you. I came up with the name because I work at a Structural Engineering Company.
