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.

Pretty good -- a staple on my own Chicago trips, to. Nice color and balance, though I remember it being better in the Windy City -- location always helps a beer, plus I usually had it on tap. Still, always a solid choice, though the IPA is definitely better.

Medium amber pillow head. Aromas grass, light caramel, light zesty hops. Flavors medium grass, light zest, grainy. Lightly sweet, dry and bitter. A beer for those just getting into the ale’s from years of lager drinking.

erickok (5281) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2016
Clean orange brown body, large stable head. Bready malts with American pine hops, nice. Taste is simpler, but still nice. The clean fermentation makes it very drinkable. Nice brew. (33 cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven)

O Sabor é sensacional! Amargor e doçura bem equilibrados! Vale a pena provar! Vai bem no frio ou no calor!

explosivedog (188) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2016
355ml bottle. Aroma is all malts. Little red fruit but it’s mostly just malts and a bitter finish. Not particularly interesting or impressive.

alexmate (56) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2016
A pretty good beer. A sort of amber colour with a thin creamy white head which soon evaporated. Nose: A bit of orange, caramel and lemon. Palate: some malt, lemon, and caramel flavours. Quite sweet tasting and not too bitter. A good interpretation of an English beer.

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle at Delirium. Aroma has malt and bitter mostly. Taste has creamy malt and chemical bitters, with an annoying cloying artificial sweetness. I don’t like this at all.

Franckg (1118) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Robe ambrée claire surmonté d’un léger col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes d’agrumes frais, pamplemousse jaune, notes de gazon séché, léger malt caramélisé. En bouche, goût d’agrumes un peu amers, malt caramelisé, gazon, zeste de pamplemousse. Texture légère et corps mince. Bonne bière de soif.
