Default New "House Ale" label

[IMG][/IMG]

Here is a label I've been working on for what I hope to be my "House Ale". The first version is in the bucket now. This is my first attempt at creating my own recipe.

Any thoughts on the label?

Great label, maybe a little more information would be a nice touch.

I echo both Penguin and Sheep Dog. Also, maybe you could texturize the large format text and sold color areas.

Really nice. Did you take that photo?

You might want to change the small black text to white, since the bottom colors on the background are darker.

those colors and the tree make me think of a Steven King Novel for some reason.

I'd drink many of whatever was in that bottle.

Glad you liked it.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try changing the color. And, No, I didn't take the pic. I found it by searching google images.
