Office Hours preview for November 1: Pale, Amber and Brown.

Pale, Amber and Brown reminds me of the Who song, as written by Pete Townshend, called "Blue, Red and Grey."

Some people seem so obsessed with the morning
Get up early just to watch the sun rise
Some people like it more when there's fire in the sky
Worship the sun when it's high
Some people go for those sultry evenings
Sipping cocktails in the blue, red and grey
But I like every minute of the day

But enough of that. At Office Hours on Monday, November 1, we'll continue our journey through the Beer Judge Certification Program's (BJCP) style definitions; specifically, it's time for Category 10 — American Ale.
