The honey ale has now been in the bottle for two weeks. So I decided to open a bottle and see how things were coming along.
The first thing I noticed is that the honey ale is already well carbonated with a thick, tan head. The color is a deep amber with a strong honey aroma. The flavor is like a mead I recently had, but with the interplay of the honey and malt it is more complex and satisfying than the mead. I believe it will get better with ageing.
I will keep you updated, dear reader.
