COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honkerís Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honkerís Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one youíll look forward to time and again.

Pours copper 2 finger head, aroma is of hopsand something I cant fully describe...notiiceable, almost white wine like (sileage, if you have ever smeeled the fermented grain that cows eat, you know what I mean, not reallt bad but not the most apetising). Flavor is ..... well balanced, inoffensive but not terribly good. Somewhat sour, too little hops and too much sour malt for my taste in An English Pale. Somehow still very drinkable. I really like Goose Island and I really like this beer, but there is something about it that keeps me from buyin it more often even though it is the most available goose Island variety in my area,

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Dark amber pour, no bubbles, with a large sudsy white head. Very clean faint aroma of hops with a hint of sour malt. Very sweet malt in good balance with the hops, slightly buttery. Some bitter in the finish. The body is very watery...has a little pop to it the in the very smooth crisp carbonation. No stickiness at all. This is one very drinkable pale, a lite version.

Not a huge fan of this beer. It is somewhat malty, somewhat hoppy, somewhat not good for some reason. Its blend is ok, the complexity lacks, and the flavors are muddled. I didnít find this refreshing but didnít find it terrible either. There are much better from goose island

TheAlum (6908) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Poured from a bottle for Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a nice lighter bronze color with a soapy head that dissipates. Smellls of malts and hops. A nice malty taste that fades into a good hoppy finish. Nothing super special about this beer, but I really enjoy it. One of my favorite session beers and the beer that put me on the path to beer exploration.

glennmastrange (2647) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle. Light caramel smell, moderate pine and herbs for the hops and a light earth note. Head is frothy white the has fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly acidic and a little sour, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is dry, light to medium and has a lively carbonation. A little bland in taste, but a nice claen, dry finish makes this beer.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
This is a tasty, satisfying, solid ale. It is amber with a thin offi-white head that dissipates steadily. The aroma is malty grain, yeasty dough, and a hint of sawdust and pine. The taste has both malt and hops noticeable, with some sweetness and bitterness, a somewhat bitter finish before a nice grain aftertaste. The flavours improve and rellow blend together nicely after the first couple tastes and itís great to drink over time. Ultimately, itís a solid, smooth, tasty, easily drinkable beer with a solid ale character. The taste is similar to a good English bitter but with a slightly less rich/complex malt character and slightly more hop character.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2007
10-19-07 bottle. Malty, doughy metal aroma. Deep amber color with decent head. Very carbonated. Medicinal metallic finish which coats the tongue. Drinkable but not my favorite.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft Ė Dark amber with a creamy white head. Aromas were of soft toasted caramel malt with faint notes of citrus and chocolate. Light citric hops bitterness balances over lesser notes of toasted chocolate. Light bodied, medium carbonation, soft malty finish. Drinkable, but just not a whole lot going on here...
