Goldsmith's Honey Ale
While the name may make people think of an overly sweet drink, the honey is a much more subtle taste that makes the pale base more refreshing and smooth.
While commonly thought of as an ingredient in Mead it was also not an uncommon ingredient in ales, even in modern day where the White House in America brews it’s own presidential honey ale. Honey ales date back much further than this, evidence shows that some of the earliest Anglo-Saxon ales would have used honeycomb and herbs. Honey ale would continue throughout the period no doubt in part to the preservative qualities of honey.
Goldsmith’s Honey Ale should come out about 5%, don’t worry if yours is slightly different so long as it tastes good.
