Probably one of the better mass produced beers that goose island has. Descent flavor but really a mediocre beer at best.

Bready malt, a hint of caramel, and some pine hops. Very dry. Nothing complex here, simple and drinkable.

12oz into pint glass. Pour is a clear amber color with a finger width of thick off-white head. Aroma is moderately hoppy with citrus and bready notes. Some caramel sneaks through too. Taste is mild with a slight hop bitterness and some malt. Good balance, light to medium body and easy to drink.

Better than expected. Mildly piney hop aroma, which made it promising. Dark golden color with a white head. Good carbonation and somewhat watery palate, which to me seemed to fit the style. Some hops bitterness up front with straw and grain character as the backbone. Goes well with food.

Blah. Bottle might be skunked. Lots of oily head. Looks pretty tasty. Aroma is mild. The flavor is muted. A slightly bitter finish, but over all leaves a clean mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Has a very deep amber color and a thin, quickly dissipating head. Has an aroma of sweet bread.. or biscuits?? The aroma was faintly similar to that of a pilsner. Also smells of some indistinct fruits. Taste is crisp, sweet, and spicy. Hops are noticeable in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Goose Island Honkerís Ale has a thin, creamed-colored head, a clear, copper appearance, some bubble streams, lots of tiny suspended white particles, and some lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is very fruity (citrus, mostly), bready, and caramel. Taste is of caramel, citrus fruit, bread crust, sweetness, and a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slick, and Goose Island Honkerís Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall it is very good. RJT
