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.

Floral aroma. Medium copper. Fizzy. Thick head. Small body accents the bitterness well. I like it as a session beer.

Tognetta (388) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 27, 2015
Âmbar levemente avermelhada, espuma bege de boa formação e persistência. Aroma caramelado, maltado, de leve/média intensidade, lúpulo bastante discreto. Paladar de amargor mais intenso do que o encontrado no aroma, prevalecem notas carameladas, sensação aguada no corpo e leve carbonatação. Aftertaste breve, mais para leve amargor que dulçor. Uma Ale fácil de beber, leve, mas sem destaques.

De ce que j’ai pu essayer de ce brasseur, c’est la moins goûteuse. C’est toutefois fort bien fait, bien malté, avec un soupçon de pêche au nez. Ça me rappelle certains produits de Picaroons mais en plus élaboré... Je perçois très peu le côté Bitter de cette bière mais elle est fort désaltérante.

Yep, that’s very drinkable and a good take on the UK bitter style. Red / brown colour, lighting body. Caramel malt base with English hop flavours sitting over the top - but more flavoursome than many of the ales poured from casks in our pubs. Hints of red fruits, hedgerow berries and that earthy English taste.

lesifflebiere (1492) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
Liquide orangé brun avec de petites particules en suspension ; mince et limpide, avec un nez fruité et malté (pêches, pommes). La bouche est mince comme il se doit, avec une finale amère sèche. Désaltérante sans être dépourvue de saveur, elle représente une belle réplique de ce classique anglais, avec une carbonatation un peu trop élevée cependant.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2015
Nice frothy ale with floral aroma and malty aroma in light volumes. The taste has distinct floral flavor with a hint of honey. Slightly malty body with prolonged hop bitterness. A good and delicate ale.

GregClow (2988) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. Light bronze-amber with a small white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of toffee, bruised apple, twiggy hops, and a hint of orange peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Simple but pleasant flavour that starts with light caramel and toasted malt, and finishes with balancing hops with notes of citrus and cut flowers, and a slight medicinal tang. Bitterness seems a bit higher than the advertised 30 IBU as it warms. Not too bad.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2015
Creamy and soft mouthfeel. Delicate carbonation. Beer has an amber color with a medium, thick and creamy head. Aroma has typical bread skin and caramel background. Plus some toffee creaminess, bit of alcohol, flowers and zest. Flavor is not exciting but hey it’s a bitter and this one is on the better side with a juicy malt creamy malt base and some aromatic hops.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. Pours amber with minimal off white head. Aroma of malts and fruit. Taste, well balanced sweet and bitterness. I enjoyed this beer.

northropfrye (2807) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Attractive Amber body lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Sweet malty aroma maybe even a touch of cinnamon and spice in there. Taste is malty with a touch of spice and faint bit of medicinal hops. A bit of a watery finish. Not bad.
