I brew beer and Honey Ale isn't such a mystery. Usually newbies try this. You don't taste the honey, as it usually ferments 100% out. Thus, giving your Ale a drier, lighter taste. The addition of honey will also increases alcohol content if you're not careful. The addition of English Nobel Hops (Goldings or Fuggles) would improve it. But,then you would be brewing an English Bitter.
