Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Clear, copper colour. Thin, but tight, lasting, sticky, pale beige head. Woody fruits to it, a bit like grape stalks. Toffee malts. Some hop spice. Taste is spicy dry. Light bitter. Fairly thin palate, with a metallic edge to it. Finishes short dry, with a hint of spicy bitter. Good take on an English bitter, but English bitters arenít my preferred style.

Old rating. Bottle from old town. Copper with a thin white head. Nose is caramel, honey and slight citrus. Taste is more of the same with a slight metallic spike. Light bodied. Nothing special.

Bottle. Some fruity aromas with maltiness. Pleasant malty beer with a little bitter on the back end and some nice aromas on the front.

3/8/15 (Bottle) - Nice solid pour and texture, copper brown with minimal white head and a decent amount of carbonation. Aroma a pleasant orange, caramel and lemon scent. Taste very smooth malt and hops blend, and the fruits are also present. Nice texture and kick, despite the low ABV. Overall a solid beer and one Iíll be turning to down the road.

Honkers Ale is normal beer that should be in the pub menu. In aroma you can feel fruits and the first taste is nice but after few sec you have got metallic palate. Glad that itís not long feeling.

It was OK, seemed to have a metallic taste, not heavy in taste and aftertaste, rich redish color, not bad but not great either

Beautiful deep amber pour (almost expecting a Jurassic Park mosquito inside). Great thick beige head. Aroma faint of caramel and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced with fruity/spicy hops and smooth caramel malts. Perfect bittersweet smooth drinkability for a rich session ale at 4.3 ABV.

Poured a copper, caramel color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy, khaki head. Thinned out rather quickly. Decent amount of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. No lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.25)
Smelled roasty nuts, sugary caramel, toffee, light chocolate, honey, cereal, toast, some grass hops and light Citrus hops. Nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.00)
First taste reminded me of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also nuts, roasty bitter malts, earthy grass hops, light iced tea, toast, caramel, toffee, faint metallic notes and faint chocolate. (Taste - 3.63)
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, nutty, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38)
This was just an OK beer. I wouldnít seek this out. (Overall - 3.50)
