Default My Very First Label !

After brewing for almost two years now, I've finally gotten around to making a label. SWMBO's daughter did the artwork for me. Whatcha think ?

I love your art work & font. I like to put the brew date & bottle date on the label so it is easy to see the improvment as it agees. Also would be nice to see the ABV.

Looks good, but the font doesnt stand out enough for me. May try top and bottom rather than down the sides?
