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.

On draught at Slice Pizza- Albuquerque. Pours a clear dark amber with a slight white head. Mellow hoppy aroma. Medium body with full mouthfeel. Hoppy flavor and bitterness top dry malt character. A nice clean ale.

cmacklin (884) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
341ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper with lots of sediment floating around and a medium, short lived, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, wheat, bread, peach and orange. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, biscuit, wheat, orange, peach and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Ok.

commonmac (1066) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Tap pour at Cityworks. Kind of a tulip glass which seems odd given this beer is as run of the mill as it gets. Copper in color with hard to find white head. Aroma is malty and slightly caramel but nothing amazing. Slight roasted malt. Taste is bready and malty with an assertive bitterness. Definite nuttiness. Kind of like what you taste when you wrap up a cup of tea. Some mild grassy notes with a little floral quality. This is more interesting than something like a traditional domestic but that’s about all it can top.

Cajun (420) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle - Pours a medium amber, white head, fades quick, but leaves lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, figs, other dark fruit. Tastes of sweet malts, fermented breads, caramel, toffee, dry hops. Feels like an amber lager. Decent Bitter.

ralphdot (1042) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2016
4.3% light amber colour with a good head, slight toffee aroma, fruity caramel malt taste, very nice. A new label and name for an old beer and the new label is really poor compered to the old one.

weark (654) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au Grain D’Orge- De couleur ambrée limpide avec une mousse blanc cassé onctueuse qui colle bien au verre - Au nez des arômes malté, caramel, biscuits, une pointe de torréfaction, des houblons floraux qui rajoute une note britannique, un nez typique des bitter ou amber ale anglaise - En bouche on reste sur un equilibre malt/houblon maîtrisé, les houblons prennent légèrement le pas sur le malt, toujour caramel biscuits, des aromes métalliques pas terrible, les houblons sont un peu agrumeux en bouche ce qu’on n’avait pas au nez et quivest un peu dérangeant a mon gout j’airais préféré floral - Corp léger, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, finne et aqueuse, fibal malté et amère moyennement longue - j’ai apprécié le nez mais beaucoup moin la bouche

On tasting at High Point. Golden color, malty and somewhat hoppy. Quite drinkable stuff, but nothing more.

Een heel fruitige geur. Een amber kleur. De smaak valt wat tegen, de geur is beter dan de smaak.
