Subject: Australian Amber Ale Recipes?
Date: 1989-04-17 21:05:09 GMT

A year or so ago, I ran into a fellow at a party who was liberally pouring
his homebrew from 2-litre plastic pop bottles. He identified it as an
"Australian-style amber ale", made from extract & grain, and it was
DAMN GOOD! Not heavy or sweet, but with ample body; hoppy but not
too much, and very refreshing on a hot day. Now that the weather's
turning hot and all I have in the cellar is heavy brown ale, I remember
that crisp brew fondly. My questions:

1) Is there really such a thing as an "Australian style" of ale, and
how does it differ from other styles?

2) Does anyone have any good "hot weather" ale recipes they're willing
to share?

Much obliged. - Martin
