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

33 cl bottle, Minneapolis. Hazy pale amber colour, malty aroma. Some malt and hops flavour, but lighter than I expected. Still decent but thought it’d be a bit more full flavoured.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big white head. Aroma is malty, with some spicy hop flavor coming through. Taste is malty, but very accented by the hops. Overall a good easy drinker, but not the best from Goose Island.

drank this with spicy gumbo and it was the perfect easy to drink ale to wash it down with. I’d drink it again

Drank this at some bar in chicago late into a night of drinking. I remember this to be a refreshing beer that had an enjoyable flavor. I would order it again and recommend it to others.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Purchased a six pack of bottles. Pours amber red. Light palate, yet quite flavorful. Very drinkable beer, will buy again.

On draft, at the United Center... Beautiful amber color, with nice crisp malt taste, very clean and easy to drink.

Sregnar35 (1023) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Pours a nice reddish color with a good golden head. Aroma is tangy but mild. Flavor is sweet with a tiny bit of grassy hops, nothing too great.

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Dark golden pour with minimal head and some yeast remnants floating around. Tastes was hard to pinpoint: sort of sweet and fruity with a crisp tingle left on your tongue. Too sweet for my taste but the crisp, spicy flavor is somewhat unique.

This pale ale is one of the only local brews near me, at first i thought it was a very simple beer and not bitter enough for a pale, but it has now grown on me since it is one of the only micro taps i can find
