Sauna's are hot. Usually afterwards, you're going to need something refreshing and cold, which isn't something that honey is usually known for.
But when it's mixed into a pilsner, you create a light, subtly sweet, refreshing beer that is perfect for after a sauna. Or after anything, actually.

Honey After Sauna: Taste Test
For a beer that waxes lyrical about the honey, the initial taste is very hop-forward and there isn't much to speak of in terms of honey. It's crisp and light with a subtle sweetness, but comparing it to the honey bomb that was Seven Bro7ers' Honeycomb it's almost invisible.
The balance is excellent and it's crisp and refreshing, with an aftertaste that's delicately sweet but not in a way that lets you know it's due to the honey. There's a little bitterness but it's a reasonable flavour, one that doesn't score marks for honey content but it's decent by itself.
