The final outcome for this ale is a nice colored brew that is mildly sweet and smooth to the palate. The Honey will balance out the dryness and you will notice the hop accents.

It isn't over powering and should be a general crowd pleaser.

I noticed that I posted my fermentation schedule out of order.

For this Amber, I do the primary fermentation at 70-72 for 4 days (Until the Krausen starts to recess). Then I move the primary to 58 degrees. I let it continue at that temp for 4 more days. Then I move to a secondary and let it clean up at 58 degrees for another 7 days.

I prime with 3.9-4 oz of priming sugar for bottling.

(I understand that there is a debate between primary vs secondaries. I have brewed this recipe about 5 times now. Each and every time I have enjoyed the outcome. I have slightly varied the process eachtime. Using primaries/secondaries, oak chips, etc. In my opinion this is the most appealing version. Happy brewing!)

Here's a visual. It has great head retention and lacing. The picture looks a little dark because I took it at night.
