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.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Slightly floral hoppy aroma. Flavor is kind of subdued hops up front with a decent malt backbone, but nothing really jumps out. Slightly dry and also metallic finish. Seems like their flagship beer is a bit dulled down in order to suit the masses, but this would be an excellent session beer.

kramer (5826) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Secret Santa 2006. Pours a clear dark gold colored body under a small fizzy white head that fell to a whispy film. Aroma is fairly light, a little floral hoppiness over a lightly toasted and bready malt base. Flavor is moderately hoppy with a light bitterness on the finish. The malt is bready and light. Mouthfeel is light bodied, watery in texture, with a decent amount of prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland and pedestrian offering from Goose Island. Alot like 100 other Pale Ales Iíve had before.

DJC (238) - USA - DEC 7, 2006
Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.

smooth crisp, distinct in a good way, honkerís ale is a chicago classic. Makes beers like miller light seem like tiolet watter. Not the best beer i ever had, but a danm good one

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 2, 2006
12 oz bottle at Kyleís "This Is Not A Beer Tasting" beer tasting. Clear amber with no head. Sweet malty caramel nose with a mild spicy hop influence. Flavor follows suit.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle at The Rake in Borough (London), a hazy amber witha foamy white head. A beautifully strong floral hop aroma with stone fruits. Very hoppy palate and a berry fruitiness. Smooth all the way through with a light bitter touch on the finish. Delicious.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2006
A dark amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong floral hop nose, some sweet malt aroma, but also slightly perfumed. A bitter taste, dry floral hop, slightly zesty, then a bitter malty flavour into the finish. (Bottle - The Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk).

Itís OK but not really for my taste. A little too citric and bitter. Seems quite carbonated

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Wispy orange citrus and light grain aroma. Orange-copper pour, with a creamy ring of ivory. Flavor is a sweet, crisp malt with a wafting edge of light toast, earthy grains and nice goat cheese over faint cream. I really appreciate the balance of up-front fruity hop character, with the more rustic deep roughly-hewn grain character in the middle. A nice long minerally crisp hop finish, maybe edging a little American? Smacks on fresh hop cone resin. Worked nicely on draft with my Ploughmanís Platter.
