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.

Very hoppy notes, and initial flavor. Overwhelms a lot of the malt flavor, which seems unusual in a beer with a caramel hue.

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 (5401) - 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!

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.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Cloudy copper with a foamy beige head. Some sweetness and fruit to the nose. Pleasant toffee taste that is very drinkable.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Fruity aroma. Fluffy head upon a coper/golden color. Tiny bubbles and little lacing. Shockingly interesting flavor, slightly yeasty/stale bread flavor with a fruity twang and minor bitterness. Interesting and drinkable but not outstanding.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 I really liked this one. Golden orange colour with little head. Hoppy fruity (orange) aroma. The flavour is also orangey and very smooth a typical pale ale taste. Very pleasant and moreish. It appears this is right up some peopleís street but not others. Iím a fan though. Score 3.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 3.5. Average becomes 3.6

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2005 Not bad. Tastes similar to Sam Adams. Some more hop flavor though. Smooth and drinkable.
