What would happen if you augmented the slightly dry, caramelly and roasty character of a smooth, mellow English brown ale with the sweet floral flavor of honey? What if you added the honey at the very last possible minute to maximize its presence in the finished beer? What if it was delicious? This recipe is a spinoff of our highly popular Nut Brown Ale kit that combines American malts, hops and ale yeast with honey. A well-balanced and intensely drinkable beer.

4.7 / 5.056 ReviewsJust...wowI've got one piece of advice for you. Buy this kit, and brew it now. This may rank up as one of the best beers I have tasted and easily the best beer I have ever personally made (and I've made quite a few).I bottled on Friday and my curiosity got the better of me to have a taste early (> week conditioned). It didn't disappoint. Rich, full head and a singular honey flavor underneath a silky brown veil. This will without a doubt become my new standard House Ale. I am sure the quality of the honey will contribute to the overall flavor. I can't wait to see how this one ages out.Buy this now!November 17, 2010August 30, 2016Excellent BrewJust tasted the first bottle, great taste, nice head, would brew again .October 14, 2015First Ever Home BrewCame out great, Easy to understand instructions. Did make with 6 gallons of water by mistake and still came out great. Will buy againFebruary 5, 2016great brewi brewed this a good while ago and what a great beer. I squeezed the grain bag hard at the end and this created and unbelievable coffee flavor everyone loves! It was a total mistake that had a great outcome. I'm getting ready to order again and glad i kept good notes so I can repeat the flavor. I also bottled with 9 tablespoons of clover honey. As always northern brewer is the best!May 18, 2016Great BeerAs always a great beer.

6 months agoDeliciously Smooth Brown AleThis was our 2nd brown ale and it didn't disappoint. We have 3 dedicated taps in our home bar....Cream Ale, Brown Ale and an IPA tap. This Honey Brown Ale will stay on the rotation list for a long time. The late addition of honey provides for a subtle (very subtle) sweetness across the palate. The smoothness of the brown ale is enjoyed from first sip to last. This beer is a fan favorite for even the less experienced beer aficionado. Great job to NB for providing a well priced, delicious kit.June 25, 2015
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 3 answersThoughts about adding apples to the secondary or would the apple and specialty grains clash?BEST ANSWER: Hi Kyle
I think the flavor could be OK..but the mouth feel and body would probably be a little too light. Honey already thins out the body of the beer slightly and apples would do the same. You would need to add a lot of apple to get a significant flavor contribution and that much apple would thin out the beer significantly..so I would not recommend it.Can you double the amount of honey you put in. And if so should I do anything differentBEST ANSWER: I would not add more than 1 extra pound to avoid changing the character too much. It tastes better with one pound of honey but if you want to have the extra alcohol that would be an OK way to accomplish it but that can have many effects on the final beer and I would not recommend it. Cheers!What is the ibu rating of this beer?
