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.

Copper in colour. Nose is toffee sweet. Flavour is malty and fruity with light hoppiness and a slightly dry finish.

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Light copper in color, very little head, no head retention, no lacing, slight hop nose with a bit of sweetness mixed in, pretty bland flavors, light in body, a bit of an undesirable aftertaste, not a very good example of the style

Sweet, gentle hoppy aroma. Pale amber color with a rocky one inch white head. Grapefruit hop flavor, but very low bitterness compared to other big APA's. Nice, sweet, easy drinking pale ale with an American Pale hop flavor and an English Pale bitterness. Mind-numbingly easy drinking beer which I think is the standard for an American session ale. Go get some. Those of you reporting no head from this beer, rinse your glassware and let this one sit outside of the fridge for a while.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Very hoppy notes, and initial flavor. Overwhelms a lot of the malt flavor, which seems unusual in a beer with a caramel hue.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2004
I could not get any head to speak of when poured. This beer's appearance is a somewhat off orange color with a very hoppy aroma, which carries over into the taste, like many pale ales. Kind of watered down thin palate, I wasn't too pleased with this one.

Orange coper color with light small head. Nice citrus aroma and flavor with a little hop character. has a little tingle from carbonation to the finish.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Best by 04 06 04... Poured a copper color with no head and some lace. Caramelized hop aroma. Althought I noticed a watery esssence even though there was nice balance between caramel malt and hop bitterness. Served from a bottle in the lounge of my hotel, first Chicago beer!

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2004
This is a good social beer. It is light crisp and tasty. But best of all about this beer was light on the carbonation. I will get this one again.

This is drinkible but I am not a huge fan of pale ale beers. While I can tell this is crafted from a mircro by it quality, it is not exceptional flavor wise. At least this pale did not make my mouth pucker, but too many hops overall. Got to give it credit though for it is a cut above your macro.

Cloudy copper with a foamy beige head. Some sweetness and fruit to the nose. Pleasant toffee taste that is very drinkable.
