Mine is a little heavy on the alcohol taste. And no honey notes at all.... it all fermented out? I dunno I'm not a huge fan I might try it again when I'm set up for all grain.

Mine was bottled 2 weeks ago, so it's still a bit young. While not fully carbonated, it has a very honey and malt taste. I accidentally forgot to add the mid boil hops, so they all went in at 5 minutes. I also made mine with a full volume boil. After a bit more aging I think it will be quite good.

I think this beer depends heavily on the quality of the honey used. Very flavorful honey really helps this beer, perhaps.

Mine improved greatly over time. After 5 weeks in the keg the aroma and taste have lots of flower and fruit qualities, most likely from the Windsor yeast rather than the honey (just my guess).

I am happy to report the beer was picked to be served at my local homebrew club's Christmas party.

When did you add the honey? This was my first time brewing with honey, but I have read that it's flavor easily breaks down in the boil.
Ive also read that raw honey needs to be added to the kettle at some point as you could get an infection from it.
I've no idea which is true or even if they are mutually exclusive but I chose to add as late in the boil as I was comfortable with. For me this was flameout. We'll see if it worked.
My buddy brewed this with some rather generic honey from the grocery and he did the same thing I did for the honey addition. He said at bottling time it smelled of alcohol and honey.

I just followed the directions on honey addition. Boiled for 5 minutes. I also used a very high quality local honey.

I'm not sure what all the excitement is about. Politics is not an ingredient in beer.
