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.

Tap at Kitty OíSheaís. Arrived a brownish gold color with just wisp of a white head. The aroma was faint sweet malt and a little bit of a hops. Not overly complex on the palate, but definitely hearty enough. The flavor was initially bready and slightly malty with the bitter hops kicking in in the middle and then a lightly sweet finish. Pretty good beer, Iíd drink it again if I could find it in FL.

Lightish red with a medium head. First a lttle sweet then tasted the bitterness then a sweet finish. Very drinkable.

OK, well, not bad. Poured a little more red than I thought it would - kind of a clear red-gold, with a foamy 2 finger domed head. The nose is faintly urine and a little honey, like my impression of a lot of goose island beers. Itís not totally offensive, just a little off. Starts honey, a midriff of pine-resin, and finishes with some lightly bitter hops. Not offensive, a little intriguing. But pine resin? I should probably try it again just to be sure.

Understated hops lean this APA more toward sweet than bitter. Aroma of sweet malts, peach, sweet grapefruit. Flavors of sweet malts with some floral hops and hop bitterness. Medium, somewhat sticky body. Quite drinkable.

A bit more like an unremarkable british bitter than an unremarkable pale ale, but itís a mighty fine session ale - medium bready malt backbone and just a dash of spicy hops - good for gulping down with a burger at the pub.

An ok pale ale - a bit of a watery body, aroma of flowers. Flavor is slightly bitter, with a hint of spice and a clean finish.

The bartender in Chicago described this brew as "one of [his] staple ales." I wasnít too impressed, however. The hops was a bit overly bitter. Donít get me wrong--I like bitter if itís done right. I just didnít think it balanced out well with the rest of the brew. An OK pale ale, but Iíd have others first, for sure.

Very easy to drink and would like to get again for a session maybe. However a slight ice tea taste makes this not great.
