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.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
Bottled. Pale amber, head thins rapidly to pencil thin. Rather short all round; quick hopish aroma, citric sweetness beaten back by the rush of sticky malts. OK but not a patch on their IPA.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2004
This seems to be common in Chicago the same way Yuengling lager is common in Philadelphia. Medium amber, OK head. Slight vaguely bitter aroma. Flavor is just a vague soapy bitterness over a medium bodied everyday APA. Reminded me of the old Sam Adams flavor without the floral note. Not bad, but sort of boring.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 355ml bottle. Citrus, grapefruit aroma. Maltiness tasted, and typical hoppy bitterness. A nice beer, though not as good as the Goose Island IPA I have tried.

BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2004
35.5cl lightweight brown bottle. Poured a clear deep amber with light gold qd head. Fresh floral peach & malt nose. Bitter citrus malt flavour. Thinnish mouthfeel & long bitter grapefruit flavour. Quite a decent beer but could be crisper.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Bottle. Copper color with small to medium sized egg shell colored head. A sour, bitter hop bite is the firstthing I notice. I think the body is a bit thin for my liking but average at best.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Bottle - many hops in the aroma. Grassy, citrusy and pine notes. Dirty gold color. Malty with a fairly complex hop flavor. A nice citrus hop finish. Slightly fizzy. Better than I remember it.

celluloiddroid (25) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2004
I wish I could like this beer more, since it is local, but I canít. Malt is apparent, as is hops, but not enough of either to make it interesting. I donít know if my tastebuds are shot after drinking primarily hoppy beers as of late, or if this is just an average beer that gets promoted to hell out here in Chicagoland.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Malty fresh, slight hoppy aroma. Mild toffee/carmel flavors. Dry, fruity finish. Medium bodied. Rather average beer. I have had this and the christmas ale and I dont feel anything special about these beers. Not bad, but could be more interesting.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2004
Bright, slightly hazed amber color. Sparkling with light sticky almond head. A light hoppy nose with citrus and grapefruit . Just a touch of sweet malt in the aroma trying desperately to get through. Sweet malt behing the scenes. Spritzy with a solid hop bitterness that fades in moderate time. Straightforward and somewhat boring.
