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.

Pretty Common APA...there was not much there that made me want more... but I have had worse. It is a good beer though and a solid purchase for $1.30/bottle

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 RERATE: Folks, there is some confusion about this beer. It is NOT an APA. It is an English bitter. If you are rating this as an APA of course it doesn’t make the grade. As a bitter however, it is a good example of the style. Amber pour with small head, some lacing. Malt aroma with some grain. Taste sweet malts light hops with a slightly bitter finish. A nice mouthfeel, smooth but just a tad watery. Basically a good initial flavor, a nice malty middle but an uninspired finish. A drinkable beer and a good deal for the price (I paid 5.99 for this one)

Amber colored. Lots of hops and malt on the nose. A real smooth, hoppy ale with a bitter finish. Quite good.

Malty nose, slight green hop. Pretty hoppy, husky malt flavor. Not as good as I remember. A slightly sweeter finish would help a lot.

Clear amber with a small head and light lacing. Aroma is deep citrus with a deffinate grapefruit taste, my first from this brewery and its a good start.

Bottle sample. I’ve had this on tap before and found that version more to my liking, In the bottled version I get a nice malt kick to start of. When the hops begin, I get a grassy tea-like aftertaste. Still a great brew, but much better on tap.

M E L L O W. Pours a clear golden brown with a small head that doesn’t last very long. Little lacing. Nutty, hoppy aroma. Malty flavor, very smooth. Good ’drinking’ beer. How can people quaff the likes of Bud when there’s something like this around?

fidemaster (288) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Medium brown color, small head. Roasted, nutty malts, floral hops with very little hop bitterness. Nice balance. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is malty, with a bit of bitterness. The malts shine through on this beer.

Nice balance of mild malt and hops. Real easy drinker. Good beer for football season.

Bottle. LIght to medium amber color. Fast fading white head. Some lacing. Modest hop aroma is slightly fruity and citric. Mouthfeel is medium. Rather boring in flavor. A little malt and a little hop. Fair at best.
