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.

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

MarkBarnes (394) - Waterville, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Jan. 23, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. This was the only serviceable beer I could find at Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l whle passing through there recently, and I was somewhat surprised to see it turn up on a shelf here in Upstate NY today. Amber color, nice balance with a tasty, candyish malt profile and some slightly spicy & fruity hops. The brewers were really on to something here, but stumbled a bit with the lightness & watery finish.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear and copper pour, decent frothy head. Looks like a nice beer. Aroma is light, some grassy hops and a little malt, not much else. Not much too it in the mouth, a bit of hops, a bit of malt, a bit of water. Actually, it’s pretty refreshing ... probably would make a good lawnmower beer, not so much a middle of the winter beer.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Single bottle purchased in Fayetteville, AR. Pours a clear copper, a frothy and persistent but thin tan head. Some fine lacing in the glass. Smells of sweet citrus and herbal hops. Certainly not the traditional hop varieties to make and English style bitter! Some fruity pale malt aromas too. Taste is lightly sweet pale malt with balancing faint herbal hops. Light in the mouth but nicely balanced and tasty. Not much more going on. A nicely balanced American-style bitter. Would be a nice session beer and is a decent drinker. If it was local, would be a regular.

Bottle. Poured a golden color with a redish hint and very carbonated. Aroma of bittering hops is very present. Taste of Clove and citrus and hops is there.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle from Sean, thanks ass bandit. Pours out a light brown to reddish color with a little head on it. Smell is light hoppiness with some grassy notes. Taste is smooth and refreshing with some sweet notes. Has a little bit of a bitter flavor with some spicies. Not really outstanding, more just a mediocre ale, but it would be about the perfect session beer. Thanks Sean.

I’ve had this beer before on several occasions, and think it is decent and well-balanced. However, there is nothing really outstanding I can say about it. Altogether, a pleasant but not memorable beer. It poured a copper read color and is slightly hazy. Head formation was pretty decent. Aroma was very malty. Taste-wise, although this beer is categorized as a bitter here, I was under the impression from previous tries that it was an IPA. It is not very hoppy for an IPA, but the hop and malt is well balanced...so I would say this is way insufficiently hopped to be an IPA, but rather hoppy for a bitter. Drinkability and mouthfeel were decent but not outstanding.
