Default Pumpkin or Honey?

I'm going to brew my second batch ever, but need help deciding which to go with. Pumpkin or honey? My friend is about to brew a pumpkin recipe that I was going to use so I wanted to brew something different unless I can find another pumpkin recipe. So, I thought a honey would be good, but I've heard its hard to find a good recipe that actually has a honey flavor.

Don't mind if I do!

Brewing like a honey wheat type of beer or thinking about another style?

Any style (preferably easy for a beginner) that has a honey flavor.

Don't mind if I do!

I've got Midwest honeybee ale in the secondary right now ready to bottle. Was very easy and with my hydro sample that I tried today, It's gonna be damn tasty! Added an extra lb of honey at flameout to boost the abv a bit and add a tiny bit more taste.

2ND the MidWest Honey Amber Ale (w/LME) . . . I just bottles it yesterday -- tastes fantastic. Can't wait for it to carb up. VERY good, VERY easy. I added the Honey for the final 20 mins of boiling. I could definitily taste the honey but it isn't overly sweet but not very hoppy either -- just an easy to drink brew. I picked it becuase I thought my wife would like it (and support the brewing of even more beer!).

I followed the kit exactly (didn't add any extras -- looks like green_bierz added extra honey). Here is the recipe (find it at: www.midwestsupplies.com/honey-amber-ale.html ):

"Our ingredients for this recipe include: 6 lbs. Gold liquid malt extract, 2 lbs. Minnesota Clover Honey, 8 oz. Caramel 80L, 2 oz. Special B, 2 oz. Roasted Barley specialty grains, 1/2 oz. Galena bittering hops, 1 oz. Fuggle aroma hops, priming sugar, and a grain bag."

A robust honey porter is a good option too. That was my first brew and i still considering it one of my best.
