All Grain American Amber Ale Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for an American Amber Ale, similar to Troegs HopBack Amber Ale. Aromas of spicy and floral hops. Medium-bodied with caramel malt sweetness and earthy/piney hop flavors. Medium hop bitterness in the finish. Good option if you like a little more caramel flavor than found in most American Pale Ales.
