I am entering a club only SMaSH competition and need help on naming the style of this beer. It does not need to fit into the bjcp categories. There will be a tasting of each beer by all present at the meeting and then voting.
The beer is nice and malty with good hop character from the northern brewer hops. It has slight caramel flavors and a light orangish/amber color. It is remniscent of an amber I suppose.
What do you think?
-78% as is

1 gallon of first runnings was boiled hard until about half of the volume remained.
