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.

sfontain (846) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Amber beer with a small, white head; very little lacing; lots of tiny sediment. Big, caramel/toffee malt aroma with some nice dark-frutiness. Flavor is nondeScriptly sweet, except for a light butteriness and toffee flavor; slight soapiness too (?); very lightly hopped. Good mouthfeel for the style; finish is extremely short, though. Overall, I like this; this is a nice, simple APA that doesn’t try to be pretentious; no overhopping, just a nice, all-around easy-drinking pale ale. I like it.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Dakre gold with amber in color and white head. Spicey hoppy aroma with a malt to hop taste and a nice bitter aftertaste. Definately hops and lemon in the flavor. Another quality brew.

5/20/04: Bottle.
Light, lemon-hopped nose with some malt and spice. Nice, full almond colored head. Brown-orange colored bodied with some lacing. Hops and malt to taste. Fairly balanced with a slight hop bite and a lasting bitter finish. Back in college this used to be one of my favorite beers.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2004
ON TAP - Maybe the keg was old, but this was a big disappointment. Not very "hoppy" and certainly not very "English-Style", it tasted like a regular macro despite being marketed and priced like a premium.

JonMoore (2024) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2004
Bottle from Safeway. Copper coloured, little head, slight lacing. Pretty good mouthfeel, average carbonation, nicely balanced between hops and malt. Not bad.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 Clear amber with a medium diminishing white head. Aroma of pine resin, caramel, grapefruit and bread. Medium watery body with lively carbonation. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, caramel, bread, and a hint fo spice. Fairly standard, drinkable. Decent.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
Bottled. Pale amber, head thins rapidly to pencil thin. Rather short all round; quick hopish aroma, citric sweetness beaten back by the rush of sticky malts. OK but not a patch on their IPA.

Kinz (3530) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2004
This seems to be common in Chicago the same way Yuengling lager is common in Philadelphia. Medium amber, OK head. Slight vaguely bitter aroma. Flavor is just a vague soapy bitterness over a medium bodied everyday APA. Reminded me of the old Sam Adams flavor without the floral note. Not bad, but sort of boring.
