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.

Poured a clear copper color into pint glass. Little to no lacing. Taste is predominantly carmel malts with hints of citrus and spice. Undernotes of overroasted malts are slightly out of character. Very crisp and clean. Not my favorite, but fine enough.

Good Bottle beer now being served on tap at a few of my favorite bars locally. Interesting flavor and refreshing taste. Iíll have to get down to the brewery sometime and try it fresh.

Couldnt even tell that this was a pale ale. The hop presence was almost non existent. Below average for me.

12 oz bottle from a Variety pack. Beer pours to a amber color with a minimum head. Small hop nose with some malt aroma. Taste is of malt and very smooth with a bit of a bitter hop finish. A Goose Island standard that has always drank well

Got a 6 pack of this for my Birthday last year. My friend from Indiana said this was her favorite regional beer, now I see why.

Draft. I thought this was a below average pale ale, as the hop presence was not there. The malt flavor was nice and drinkable, but the beer needed some hop balance.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass, cloudy orange with almost no head. (This was an aggressive pour, wondering if the bottle was a bit flat.) The aroma was dominated by roasted malt. The flavor was a nice balance of roasted malt and hops. Very smooth, little bitterness. Nothing stands out too much, but a smooth drinakable session beer.

Good Session Beer....Iím on number 6 right now....íhicupí Pours burnt orange colored with a nice head that fades quickly. Aroma is not offensive and not very strong. Tastes like most pale ales. Itís a staple that Chicago can be proud of!
