Hi All,

Long time reader, first time poster. Had a few 4 Pines Amber Ales on the weekend and am keen on attempting to recreate it. From their website:

Tasting Notes:Ruby in colour, with rich copper hues. Hop driven aromas of currant & pear, rounded on the palate with a toasted malt character, light fruitiness & a balanced bitter finish.

Malts: Ale, Carapils, Crystal, Cara-Munich, Carafa

Hops:Columbus, Mosaic

I don't know anything about the beer and haven't done any further research in to existing clone recipes out there, but 20% crystal malts seems excessively high, and I'd be moving more of the hops to late additions for more flavour/aroma.

I'm sure on the interwebs somewhere there'd be information about IBUs, gravity, and EBC, which would help with building a recipe.

Thanks a heap. Will look into it. ABV = 5.1%, IBU = 37. The Colour is close and to be fair, not the biggest factor. is it in the ballpark?
