I'd add a flavor hop addition. Four oz chocolate malt seems like too much but 350L is pretty light. Sure would not want that much of anything darker.

Default Amber Ale (partial extract)

First Im sorry for jumping into your thread, its just that it wasn't very busy and i thought i would ask one of you experts what kind of concoction Ive got going on here.
"5 gallon batch"
3.3 - lbs Amber (hopped) LME @ flameout
2 - lbs light DME
1 - lbs Crystal 60L
1 - lbs Belgium Candi Syrup D-45 @ flameout
1 - oz First Gold UK hops @ 10min
5 - oz Kreamy X @ bottling
S-05 yeast

Can one of you guys please shed some light on what Ive got going on here. Am i still in the Amber Ale range or am i looking at a more darker beer to come out of this. What should i add or subtract to get where i need to be? I'm definitely looking to have a malt forward (caramel) tasting beer. What should in be expecting as far as ABV?
Thanks for you replies to this amateur!
