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.

Good malt and hops cobination leaves this sweet, spicy and toasted. Well balanced for an American pale, in which the style tends to be over-hopped. Light citrus and yeast taste. Not exceptional, but a good brew.

I need to try again for sure. Had what seemed like an old one at the airpotr in Chicago. people need to be moer proud of the local brew, especially when the other chioce is millebucoors. This might not be great, but is a good, well brewed beer.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2002
Bottle conditioned? Amber bronze, good lasting head and moderate condition with very little yeast apparent in the bottle. Bready aromas with hints of caramel and some assertive American hops. Plenty of hop flavour but with a slight soapiness, and a soft finish with a delicate hop bitterness tickling the tongue. I walked into one of my local stores expecting a shelf full of already rated beers and was surprised to find this along with the IPA. Can we have some more American beers in the UK please.

Good pale ale, although other brews offered (which I forget already) were more adventuresome. Easy brewpub to find even if youíre not local.

Not a bad beer, but they make a few better ones at their brewery. It has a better nose than taste, but itís nose is pretty good.

Very nice session beer. Somewhat of a fruity aroma and flavor makes it pleasant to drink, and the decent hoppiness reminds you that it is indeed beer. Excellent for a family gathering.

fraternie (815) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Something about this beer just isnít right. Bad aftertaste and totally different flavor from what I like in an ale. Nothing compared to the Hex Nut Ale.

Rich amber color, slightly cloudy. Nice fruity aroma. Mellow flavor, mildly sweet with a little hoppiness. Hint of citrus? Pretty good overall, but somethingís missing here that would make it top notch.... I donít know what. For $5 a 6 pack? Hell yeah!
