Needs more hops, especially late additions.

Default Inda Honey Amber Ale

Just wondering about the 5# of Munich... not sure if that is a typical amount for an Amber. I like less than 1# of Munich or Vienna in some of my Pales & Ambers.. 5# would certainly be malty.

Also, if you want the honey character to come through, I would use 1# mabye a tad more... and add it after the boil .. during cooldown.. to preserve the flavors & aroma.

Good luck!
