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.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Crisp sharp bitterness. God mild taste combination of roasted malt, caramel, fruit remains beneath the hops, but blends well to create a good session beer with a refreshing and clean taste. Close to an IPA.

Bottle: first of all the bottle says this is an English bitter while ths website says an american pale ale. Whats up with that? I will go with the american pale ale because it tasted like nothing. Nothing special what so ever.

To borrow a word from the brewer’s own description, I think "balanced" is a nice way to describe this ale. It may not blow your socks off, but it’s an agreeable, smooth, and drinkable beer that’s sort of like an old friend. A fine intro to American pale ales.

madsberg (10593) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light beige head.. Sweet and light caramelly aroma. Flavour is sweet and a bit boring. Watery and thin. Has not much to offer in the end.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Hazy amber body with a moderate to large head. Aroma is very fruity, lotsa light stuff in here. From peaches to oranges. Also notes of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, and some grass. While I thought the aroma was quite promising, this has a very mass produced taste to it. Light acidity and easy to drink, but didn’t live up to my expectations after the aroma. OK I guess. It’s a shame there were a zillion 6 packs of this and thier new Impy Stout was sold out. This beer definitely has the Southhampton Secret Ale thing going for it.
