Has anyone here brewed a honey lager using Mr Beer extract? Any information would be great!

Based on my limited experience, Lagers aren't easy.  You have to ferment at 55 degrees and condition as close to that as possible.  I have an InkBird and a fridge that I can use to make them, but they aren't as forgiving as ales

 

Secondly, from what I've been told (not done this........yet) honey tends to dry out a beer.  That is a taste issue.  But if done right, can be very nice tasting

 

A "honey lager".....I'd leave that to the Mr. B bremeisters.  If you are wanting a honey-based beer, try http://www.mrbeer.com/saison-du-miel-recipe  I have my eye on this one

We actually do have a honey lager, Honey Maibock (http://www.mrbeer.com/honey-maibock-recipe).

 

If you're concerned about being able to maintain the correct temp for a lager (which, as @MiniYoda pointed out, is usually around 55 F), we also carry a digital temperature controller that you can plug any fridge into to maintain perfect temperature (http://www.mrbeer.com/digital-temperature-controller-outlet-thermostat).

 

If you think you'd rather come up with your own honey lager, I usually recommend no more than 1 cup per 2 gal batch. This will help limit the dryness that @MiniYoda also pointed out.
