Bottle at Galileo Cafe, OíHare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if youíre passing through.

English style? Well, not really. This was a lot better than the average sessioner in my pub here in the English Midlands. Clear amber with a small head. The aroma was very special. Just canít put it into words. Less of the sweetness and sourness than a bitter, and a sharper, spicier hop taste. Might get a few more of these.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Clear and shiny light orange pour with a thin but very persistent cap of butter colored head. Aromas of oranges, candy, and a slight yeasty/Belgian funk, tart and estery. The tartness in the aroma makes it into the flavor, especially noticable on the roof of my mouth. Pleasantly bitter, balananced with a touch of sweetness. A little bit thin. A different sort of APA, but no really shining attributes, and not as clean as I expect for the style.

Very bitter and citrusy. I really like this beer with spicy foods as well as pizza. Honkerís Ale was one of the first "craft" beers I had ever tried, so it was a bit to get used to coming from a Miller Lite upbringing. Iíve stuck with it as Iíve grown as a beer lover, and Iím glad I have. Itís now one of my favorite everyday beers; good quality and taste for a decent price. It may be considered overrated by some, but this ESB/APA has a very underrated ability of expanding the palates of those who are uninitiated to good beer.

Good session beers are hard to find and when you do find one they are harder to put down. I love this beer, enough hops to make it stand out but not too strong, the malt makes it chewy but doesnít affect its drinkability - contray, its rich taste makes it a smooth travel down your gullet.
