Default What Beer is This?

So I brewed what was labeled to be a pilsner from true brew..but I don't really think that's what this is. The ingredients were 1 oz cascade hop pellets, 1 oz cascade hop leaves, 3.3 pounds light LME, 2 pounds light DME, and Muntons ale yeast. Can anyone help name this beer?

Is that just bad lighting, or did you scorch the hell out of that extract?

Agreed, sounds like a blonde ale recipe to me.

As far as a name maybe Duchess of New York or something like that? Where do ya live, you could maybe come up with something clever based on that.

True Pilsners which are a lager are beyond the capabilities of most novice homebrewers so the kit makers offer a lager like ale. It is a bit deceptive.

It would more accurately be descriped as a blonde or extra pale ale.

In answer to hunter I would say that it is lighting. A brew in a carboy will look a lot darker than in a glass. My extra pale ales look that dark in a carboy with the lighting from behind me.
