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.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Sampled on draught. Malty, lightly fruity aroma with a hint of caramel. Light to medium amber color, slightly hazy, with a small but creamy head. Flavor is uncomplicated, with a bit of lightly fruity, caramel malt and a gentle hop bitterness. Finish is mostly hoppy and smooth. Light to medium body. Palate is a bit on the thin side. A definite session beer.

copper color with small head, floral hop and malt aroma, well balanced, and a bit thin, but still a good session type beer

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Nice rich color, good hoppy flavor. Not as strong as most pale ales, but has a nice texture in my mouth.

At Oíhare in Chicago. Hoppy aroma and flavor. Thin non lasting head. A nice beer to pass the time away when at Oíhare.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Nice stuff. Much maltier and heavier than your average pale ale. Dark amber color, with little head dissipating to nothing as you drink. Has a worty nose to it, like it hasnít been fermented yet. I like that smell. Iím guessing they used a low alpha cascade variety, with pale malts and a bit of caramel malt. Thatís some beer geekspeak right there. Suck it down, cousin, itís good.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Has that damn perm or íbarber shopí hops smell to it. Anyone know what kind of hops these are? Very light, even for an APA. Not as much malt presence as I like, even in an APA. This is OK. Funny, I""ve heard two people rave about this to me; I feel a bit let down.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Watery and somehow good. Flavorful, light head. Not your average APA, thank goodness. One of the best of the style I"ve tried.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 6, 2003
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.
