Recipe Details
Tasting Notes This beer was created for my wife to eat crabs with. It is a very, flavorful light brew that goes great in the summer (or any other time). The honey creates the smoothness and gives it a nice subtle alcohol kick.
Awards I have converted several (non-beer drinking) women to beer drinkers with this beer.
