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.

When I pop the lid, I thought yeasty, but there is some choco aroma in there someplace. It pours looking like a dunkel weizen, light brownish and cloudy. Taste certainly has hop preservative in there. I also get a hint of chocolate passing thru to the taste. Hey this is not APA, it’s EPA! This is right there with other English Pale ales, on par with Ottos Mt. Nittany Pale Ale, Great Divide Denver Pale Ale and Spanish Peaks Black Dog Ale.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2007
English hops and malt in the nose, golden body, small white head. Maybe EKG and Fuggles: herbal, grassy hops with a bit of fruitiness. Mild body, refreshing, nicely balanced, under-rated here.

This beer gets max appearance because they have cool beer taps. If you’re in Chicagoland then you must have this beer

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2007
On tap. Strong notes of spice (nutmeg, ginger), actually reminded me of Vernor’s soda. Slightly grassy and hoppy as well, providing balance. Thin, but left nice lacing. Great stuff!

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2007
On tap at the Clarke Street Ale House. Amber in colour and hazy with a thin white head. Sweet taste with a hint of caramel, spices, nutmeg. Complex and quite nice.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Nice looking clear orange color with a foamy white head. Predominantly malty aroma with just a hint of flowery hops discernible. Hops also take a back seat in the flavor. I was hoping for a bit more bitterness.

mkofron (155) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Hazy orange with off white head. Hops, fruit and spice. Solid drinkabe beer.

nearbeer (4610) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft at O’Hare. Copper with a small lasting head. Aroma of peppery toasted pecans. Taste is the same, with a nice caramel aftertaste. Palate is light-medium, slightly dry, and astringent with a lot of tongue tingle.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Moderate aroma of citrus hopps and cereal malts. Average sized frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left a better than fair lacing. Body is normally clear with a medium brown-amber hue. Flavor starts lightly bitter/sweet and ends moderately bitter with a short finish. Palate is light and watery with soft carbonation. Not bad but overall it was below average.

downender (7627) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slight off-white head. This didn’t make much of an impression. A slightly fruity aroma followed by a sweet malt flavour and some hops on the finish. Ok.
