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.

Amber coloured. Good balance between hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. Slightly fruity as well.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2004
A golden brew with a lovely cascadey hop nose with some graininess. The flavour is a bit of a let down after the nose IMO, with plain maltiness, some bitterness and a touch of hop. Fairly dry, plain finish. (Bottle from Booths supermarket, Cheshire)

One of the better ale’s in the midwest. My personal favorite of the Goose Island brews, and one of the better ale’s I have sampled.

Goodfella (60) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2004
No freaking head at all!! This beer is very blannnnddd. The only thing I could say that good about this imitation light beer is that it is recyclable. The taste was not that bad but it is still very bland.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2004
This a quality light bodied beer. Nice copper color. Mild aroma of malt, hops, and a hint of citrus, possibly orange peel. Flavors are dominated by hops with an inkling of malt and caramel flavors up front. Easy drinking.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Bottled - Medium amber in color with a thin whitish head. Malt/caramel and hops in the aroma. Bitter tasting without a lot of hop flavor. Bitter finish lasts a while. Their IPA is better.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pale ale with a balanced flavor. Distinct hop flavor, balanced with a decent amount of hops. Unique flavor, not your run of the mill pale ale.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2004
Bottled, 355ml. Purchased from Safeway, Totnes, Devon. Not a great beer.. very unbalanced. Probably won't sample again.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
In my opinion, not Goose island's best beer, but a very good beer nonetheless. Hoppy but actually well-balanced according to type. A good introduction to Chicago's premier craft brewery.
