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.

Watery and somehow good. Flavorful, light head. Not your average APA, thank goodness. One of the best of the style I"ve tried.

light amber color, with a thinish, quickly dissipating head. Bitter aroma, with hoppy notes, and a slight unpleasant metalic odor. Very thin, watery palate. Flavor is rather bitter throughout, but not in a particularly good way. Nothing much else in the flavor to speak of. This bottle is a little old, so maybe itís gone bad, but I donít think this beer is much to speak of at all.

not a bad apa, but not a great one either. the more they make the lighter in flavor this seems to have gotten over the last 5 years. try their ipa for a real winner.

A little cloudy in appearance. The head was ok. Tastes both fruity and a little hoppy. Yes, I can taste the yeast coming through.

From the bottle. Nicely balanced ale--neither hops nor malt overwhelms the other.

This beer must have been nitrogenated. Light amber body with a nitrogenated looking cream head. Playful, light, fruity hoppiness in the nose with a creamy, fruity hopped body. A merger between an APA and a cream ale. Eh.

Good, malty APA. Needs more hop or different style? I think their malts keep this beer from being average. Needs stronger head--- they should import a yeast?

I donít really think ísmall batchí when I think Goose Island. This is the flagship beer, rightfully so probably. Kind of thin mouthfeel, fair head, light amber color, roasty malts that are set aside by floral hops. It tastes like it smells, for the most part. Appropriately carbonated. A great session beer. When itís truly fresh on tap, itís practically unbeatable.

Bottled. Light-medium amber, little head. Nse has caramel, somewhat roast, some fruity hoppiness. Flavor is reasonably hoppy, but thatís about it; very little sweetness, and rather dry and lacking in malt. Fizzy on the end, but a decent long finish.

Much better on tap than in bottles, this is a bottle review. It just doesnít seem to have anything exciting going on. Certainly a very calm (boring) version of an ESB.
