I guess it depends on how much sweetness you want to show through. I was trying for something with a sweet note, and I think this came out right were I wanted it. I don't find it to be overly sweet, or have a caramel/honey aftertaste, but it certainly is more on the sweet side than the bitter side. If that isn't what you'd prefer, definitely cut back on the crystal and honey.
As to the Carapils, this brew didn't have a lot of body, but I wanted something crisp and light - which is why I added in the corn sugar. If you want a bit more body, that would be the way to go, or leave out the 1/4 pound of corn sugar.
