Im not sure what to classify a brew i just made. It has an ounce of galena, an ounce of williamette, and an ounce of nugget hops. I used 6 lbs of amber extract, and a lb and a half of crystal malt. What style might this be considered? How did you arrive at your answer?

Thank you

I'd call that a Pale Ale or an Amber Ale, depending on the bittering hop addition. Amber/Pale is kind of a catchall for a blonde to amber colored beer with medium to high hop flavor/aroma. With that much crystal malt, I'd lean more toward an amber but it just depends on the color of the final product.

Fermenting: ESB
Kegged: Extra IPA, Brown Ale, American Wheat, Blackheart Stout
Coming Up: Dunkleweizen, 3C Pale Ale
