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.

Made a good appearance, poured a hazy orange hued tarnished copper with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, fair amount of sticking, moderate carbonation overall. Had a nose of citrus and woody hops with a toasted grainy maltiness. A crisp, dry and smooth light bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Toasted grainy and bready with a citrus and woody hop taste, the hop bitterness are soft and smooth, a nice dry crispiness from the malts and a dry grainy and hoppy finish. Another good brew from Goose Island, one of my favorite Great Lakes/Midwest brewers. Also, my bottle has a red label with the words "English Bitter" on it and I feel, personally, that this has more in common with a bitter than a APA. Best before date on the back label, 08/27/06.

Was a very smooth beer with no bitter after taste. It is rather malty but I would definitely drink it again.

Hangover (1083) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2006
On tap in Chicago Bennigans. Nice dark copper pour with a somewhat thin tan head. Iím surprised this is an APA...I remember the heavy malt middle and finish. Very English. Very malty. I really liked it. Lots of wood/oak in the finish, which is nice and bitter. Iím a bit of a hop junkie, so I know this isnít anywhere near the top, but Iíll say itís one heckuva good accessible beer. If you live in the midwest lol.

Out of a bottle as part of a variety pack. Enjoyed this ale, thought it had a good taste and went down nice and easy.

Gr0ve (2167) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2006
1 pint draught, Gingerman NYC. Light amber. Rich hoppy aroma, perhaps a little swimming pool aroma; chlorine and all. Quite hoppy aftertaste. Pretty much an amber pale ale. High carbonation level.

Flavorful but not overpowering, refreshing but not at all thin. A good "drinking beer."

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle 355ml. Amber/copper beer, almost no head. Smells really nice hoppy, flowery, peachy and some caramel in the background. The flavours are not so pronounced hoppy, but it is there, more caramelish and malty like an english bitter, some sweetness too. More hoppy, bitter, long and fruity finish. Well balanced, good beer!

from the tap. poured a copper amber, with a small ring of off white head do to the fact that person who poured the beer into the mug filled it to the top. araoma mild hops, some sweetness, malts, amd a hint of grain. flavor, the hops and malts were well balanced, honey nice bitterness, spices. good beer going to have to try from the bottle because on tap it was good. nice smooth mouthfeel to this.
