Hello everyone and thanks for your welcomes. I've two reports on the Honey Ale experiment. Initially I opened a bottle soon as it was ready and I can say without hesitation that it was disgusting. Due to that I put the rest away under the stairs. After a couple of weeks I thought I'd try it again, admittedly out of desperation (i fancied a beer and there was none in the house at the time). Have matured a bit, its now really quite nice. Its extremely strong though.
