The American wheats I’ve been tasting at competitions lately take the best of American pale ale, add some nice low-Lovibond character maltiness and wheat, and back off the IBUs so you can actually appreciate the flavors. This one was a silver medal winner at the Philly Homebrew Cup.

Biére de Garde’s are a remarkably flexible beer that can be brewed as a pale, amber, or brown, depending on your preferences, pairings, or the season of service. This recipe aims right down the middle in terms of the style and its color/flavor options, and is a gold-medal-winning amber Bière de Garde (at the 2012 BUZZ Off, hosted by the BUZZ Homebrew Club in West Chester, Pennsylvania).

The best thing about brewing a mild is that you get to dial up pretty much all of your favorite malt flavors, in whatever ratio you’d like, in a session-strength beer – and all you need to do is back out the black barley and sub in a bunch of fun character malts.

The initial aromas are all herb, with a low floral and fruity hops aroma underneath. I didn’t perceive much in the way of grist aromatics until I took my first sip, and then it all really came together. The rich malts lingered on the tongue and the savory herbs filled the nose, with peppery phenols accenting everything beautifully.

This amber ale is somewhat of a hybrid between a hops-forward American pale ale with a big-time floral nose and flavor, and a roasty/malty American brown ale.

Dear Replicator, I am an avid homebrewer and especially enjoy trying to replicate the great beers I come across in my journeys. I recently fell in love with Crazy Mountain Brewing Company’s Amber Ale and its floral-hoppy finish. To my dismay, I cannot find a clone recipe anywhere! I knew if anyone could tackle a project like
