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.

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.

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

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.

A nice Pale Ale. Clear copper color with a slim off-white head. Nice mild hoppy aroma, with a smooth...not so shockingly hoppy taste. Well balanced, and a nice brew. Had this in the C Concourse at Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

I had this on tap in Chicago and then from the bottle in Iowa City and then on tap in Iowa City. The Iowa City waiter said it was the best beer he'd had in a long time. Poor bastard. I liked it a lot in Chicago and not so much in Iowa City in either form. On tap in Chicago it was creamy and delicious, just hopped so and slightly sweet. The Iowa City experiences were overly bitter and rather flavorless. Haven't been able to touch the stuff since, and it's scared me off their other products.
