Notes of swamp grass, dirt, pine, butter, and toast. Definitely some roasted malts in here. To be honest, Iím not very familiar with this style and donít have much of a reference point in terms of how this is "supposed" to taste. Itís not bad, though. I find it interesting enough. Not really a refreshing beer, and not really a hop or malt bomb. Iím getting a little bit of a taste that a Magic Hat beer in a spring mix pack a few years ago had. Thereís maybe just a hint of what youíd get in a Stock Ale, an Irish Red, or an ESB blended together. Also reminds me a tad of some of the Wild Goose (defunct mid-atlantic brewer) beers- similar hops or yeast strain, possibly. Low ABV for an American craft beer, but I think thatís characteristic of English-style bitters.

Nice aroma right off. Citrus and malt. Pours with a minimal head, lingers longer than it should, but leaves no lacing. Beautiufl amber color....Taste is lemon right away, but itís not bitter, itís sweetish. I taste roasted malt, but not a lot of hops. Finishes a little bitter but clean...Mouthfeel is medium dry. Itís crisp....Overall, itís a good ale. A really good ale. Itís extremely sessionable.

Draught @ Dusty's, Whistler-Creekside B.C.
Clear red copper, negligible head. Bready and malty, but fairly dry finish for an English style bitter. Cara lingers, bit too sweet.

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.

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.
