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.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 One of the beers that got me going on craft beer. These days its pretty middle of the road. Everything is pretty uninspiring, yet good enough for an everyday staple beer.

Orange-borwn color with a thin pale head. Grapefruit scneted citrus hops aroma. Flavor is malty with a mixture of sour fruits. Light bodied palate which is not very interesting. A slight aftertaste. Nothing special but not bad. This is a beer I would enjoy while eating grilled food.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 11, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Pours dark gold with deep orangish hints and a very thin white head. Aroma of fresh ’C’ hops, grapefruit, citrus, and pine trees. Taste is clean, hoppy,and straightfoward. Some light toasted malts and sweet caramel in the background, but the main focus is the hops. Because of this, old bottles can be a bit unpleasant. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly resinous with moderate carbonation.

12oz. bottle. Amber/orange color with a small white head. Mild citrus hop aroma and flavor with a strange aftertaste that reminded me of green tea(though not in a good way).

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Bottle from a summer pack of goose island beers. Best by 10/05. Pours an orangish copper. Smells of malted grain and “band-aid”? The flavor was generally mild and malty. Not too many descriptors needed for this one. I also detected some sort of unpleasant taste deep down in this one (also noted in after taste). Stale and/or band-aid (kept coming to mind). The body was smooth with a bit of an astringent finish. Nothing too great.

Alefest ’05 - Standard issue. Grainy flavor in an otherwise melancholy blandness.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Pours copper. Hop and Lemon aroma. Could taste the hops upfront, but the malt takes over quickly and makes this a very tastable and drinkable brew. I recommend. Very drinkable, Nice beer.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2005
Hop and citrus aroma. Hops to start but didn’t get any malt because the lemon flavor was a bit overpowering. After a few sips my tastebuds readjusted and it wasn’t bad. Could just use a bit more hops. Lips were smacking at the end from the lemon still.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2005
Bottle. Amber color. Dry mouthfeel. Hoppy with notes of orange and straw, also some caramel malt. Sligtly bitter and acidic. Tasty and quite enjoyable.
