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.

355ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with an off white head which dissipates quickly. Pleasant recognisably American aroma. Fruity hops, slightly herbal and a sherbet like sweetness. Medium sweet taste with light bitterness. Very easily drinkable and pleasantly satisfying ale. Quite good.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1252 - 15.09.2014. On tap at Keg N Cork growler bar. Clear golden pour with a thick, frothy white foam that seems to go on forever. Taste is quite bland, bitter malts, honey and very creamy. Finish is quite smooth, rather enjoyable.

ordybill (1225) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Appearance- a crystal clear light copper color with a medium white head. Aroma- full of malt with some fruit in the background. Taste- a really good blend of caramel and malt with hops giving it a nice full flavor. Another really good offering from Goose Island.

exeter (497) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy bronze, with a nice head and some lacing. Sweet caramel and herbal hops. Toasty malts and a hint of caramel mix with grassy, earthy hops that leave a little bit of citrus lingering. Pretty tasty

pumpkinhead2 (746) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bière orangée-cuivrée, très légèrement voilée, effervescence soutenue, belle et uniforme, et surmontée d’un col légèrement brunâtre pas tellement large, mais très dense et crémeux, et qui semble éternel. Arôme de pain légèrement grillé, pâtisserie, sucre d’orge, léger miel, léger caramel. Aussi, effluves de houblon un peu fruité (pamplemousse surtout..), un peu herbacé, mais qui semble principalement poivré. Nez plutôt ordinaire, complexité et intensité moyennes. En bouche, pétillement moyen-faible sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, malt qui semble plus céréalier qu’au nez, grain, pain légèrement grillé, léger sucre d’orge, suivi d’un houblon principalement herbacé (gazon, feuille verte, herbes aromatiques…) et poivré, pointe de pamplemousse. Finale à l’amertume légère mais tout de même bien sentie, équilibre malt/houblon intéressant, mais complexité et intensité en bouche qui restent plutôt faibles, impressions aqueuses par moment. Bière correcte, sans plus…

Balanced in its blandness, nothing sticks out, nothing disturbs but nothing intrigues. Nothing to buy this beer again for but also nothing wrong with this beer.
