Default ? about beer style

I have been making pilsners lately. My normal base malt is just all pilsner malt with a tiny bit of melanoiden malt.
Well on my last batch I was short on my normal pilsner base malt by a pound so I replaced it with a pound of dark munich malt. Much to my supprise I created a totally red beer which I am cool with. I am sure its no longer a pilsner and what not. And havn't tasted it yet its lagering. But my question is, what kind of beer will it be considered now? An octoberfest or somethin? Just curious.

It doesn't really fit a BJCP style, but the broad category "European Amber Lager" definitely fits.

I vote that it is still a pilsner.

Are you judging the red in a small amount or a bulk amount?

In bulk. In a carboy. Why?

I'm guessing they asked because beer always looks darker in the carboy than in the glass or the hydrometer tube. I've had Red Ales that almost looked like stouts in the carboy from certain angles with no light.

Still close enough to a pilsner for me too.

Still a pilsner is my take as well. Everything looks darker in a carboy. Like Superman, it has to deal with distance from Earth's yellow sun.
