Thinking about doing this one before I leave for Europe. Cream ale from web, modified for a bit more ABV and body. Does it look ok? BTW - Many thanks for replies i got on making a Michelob amber bock clone for my freind! have come up with what i feel will be a good amberbock recipe now - (beefed up a bit!) For now...

Not concerned with color. looking for a little more flavor complexity. Thanks!
