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.

SGTHibbert (100) - Perry, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Heavy malt, caramel, and milk shocolate, moderate hoppiness of flowers and pine, oak, toffee, honey, syrup, and alcohol. Head was small, off white mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet and acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. Overall a very excellent Pale Ale.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2006
On tap 7/15 @ "The Second City" comedy theater in Chicago. Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma has hints of a floral hops with some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty with a mild bitter finish. I found this well balanced and easy drinking since I had several pints during the comedy revue.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Pours a nice amber color with medium head and a little bit of lacing. A mix of flowery hops and caramel malt in the aroma. The malt flavor comes out when I take a drink. Easy drinking, nice on the palate.

linc33 (184) - Albany, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle at Galileo Cafe, O’Hare 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 you’re passing through.
