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.

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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2002
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.

Mmmm, light and soapy with a metallic edge. Not a good beer.

Fairly fast diminishing creamy head. A fairly hoppy aroma with a malty undertone. A copper, amber color. Very smooth drinking. Like the aroma the flavor is hoppy underscored by malt. A little bit of a smokey undertone as well.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2002
The aroma is slightly malty. Notes of toffee and caramel. This crystal clear, deep amber beer has a small, white head. Mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The flavor is perfectly balanced with bursts of caramel and butterscotch. Medium-length, dry finish with fresh cut fescue at the far end.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2002
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 (3645) - 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.
