Product Details
An original recipe brewed by White House staff and shared with the world as a Northern Brewer kit. Built on a big foundation of malt with strong tones of biscuit and toffee, White House Honey Ale plays down hop bitterness and plays up the fruity and caramelly aspect of English malt and yeast. A late addition of pure honey is the signature calling card of this recipe, imbuing a floral aroma and lightening the body. Ale to the chief!

Delicious
4th batch brewed, and by far the best. Once I upgrade to a 5 gallon setup, this will definitely be what I go with. I did read a few reviews in regards to using more honey and I did, probably double the amount, couldn't tell you since I didn't measure, but couldn't really tell it was there except a light after tone of it. I was concerned how it would turn out since I was rushed during the cooling process and didn't get it all the way down to temp, and added too much of the yeast, but still turned out great. Highly recommend this for all brewers.

Suprising
Got the 1 gallon kit to test before trying a 5. Brewed as per instructions. Bottle conditioned 3 weeks and it evaporated after it hit the fridge. Will brew a 5 gallon kit soon.

Give it time to mature.
Just finished my last bottle, after almost 6 mos of conditioning, and this is definitely my family's favorite. Brewed per instruction you will get just a faint aroma and taste of the honey, so maybe double the honey would be better, just worried about excessive blow off with the extra sugars, as the original had a very active ferment that I caught just before it got out of control.

Became better with age...
My review is really a 4 star review but I wanted to balance out my original 3 star review. We cracked open the rest of the bottles just before Christmas. The additional 4 weeks really helped (total of 8 weeks). It really smoothed out the flavor and gave it a much better finish. Still no hint of honey but it became a much more drinkable brew and will brew it again. Many of the NB kits are like this (German blonde and the Saison) in that they benefit from a three to four months of aging.

Not a bad start!
Experimented a bit from the original recipe to make it my own and have had great results! I recommend using a raw honey and cane sugar priming solution for bottling instead of the tablet for better carbonation and taming the heavy aftertaste!

Pretty good!
First ever batch. The instructions were super simple.The only complaint is the same as everyone else... Not enough honey flavor. The supplied honey is a very small container.Also, same as others, my beer came out much darker than the photo.Would brew it again!

So, I made this kit (my first homebrew attempt!) and after 2 weeks in fermentation and 2.5 weeks in the bottle I tried my first one. However, when i tried it it was EXTREMELY carbonated. Like a beer-flavored soda. Super gross. Thoughts on why this happened? (I didn't take OG and FG readings. I maybe should have, but since I'm only making it in one gallon I feel like that takes away a pretty significant portion of my final output after just a few readings.)

BEST ANSWER: Hello,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! That is more than likely because the beer wasn't finished fermenting prior to bottling so the yeast continued to ferment while in the bottle. So with those extra sugars, and the priming sugar, the yeast were able to produce more carbonation than you would want in that beer. I hope that this helps!
Dumb question but can I use three 1 gallon kits for a 3 gallon carboy?

BEST ANSWER: You could do this...might make more sense to look up the recipe and determine if you can buy larger containers of the malts and save some money possibly...it would also only need one packet of yeast.
