COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12oz bottle pours with a clear amber body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up malty notes, some almost winter like spices, a touch of biscuit malts and then sugary sweetness. The taste starts with malts, a nuttiness, a bit of biscuit and thin malt roastiness. Towards the finish caramel malts move forward and further sweeten up the deal. Not bad but not really something to seek out.

Listigovers (438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Aroma of fresh hop resin. Copper and clear with a lasting white head. Light to medium bodied and refreshing with some light berry like sweetness, this slight sweetness is balanced with a crisp finish with slight bitterness. Pretty nice, very easy to drink.

patxa (201) - MEXICO - DEC 29, 2014
Pour from bottle. Citrusy aroma with a hint of hops. Brief white head with almost no lace, light brown to pale looks. Hoppy, grassy notes with a sweet, abrupt palate. Very drinkable nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent, but somewhat bland. Nice malts and not too bitter, which was nice.

DarkSong (330) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2014
12 oz bottle. It pours an amber color with a small white quickly fading head. It has a nice malty aroma. This is a incredibly drinkable beer. A mild hop bitterness in the background of a wonderfully rich malty beer. It has a nice toasty taste.

mcberko (8691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out light English hops and some soft crackery malts. Flavour is clean, with very restrained English malts, not a whole lot of hops. Dry, bland, but drinkable. Would be better on cask. Okay.

On tap during a St Patty’s Chicago trip -- Nice easy drinking, hops in the middle.

Very smooth and crisp beer with that bitter taste I like. Leaves a great aftertaste and has an amazing dark amber color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
