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.

OK, well, not bad. Poured a little more red than I thought it would - kind of a clear red-gold, with a foamy 2 finger domed head. The nose is faintly urine and a little honey, like my impression of a lot of goose island beers. It’s not totally offensive, just a little off. Starts honey, a midriff of pine-resin, and finishes with some lightly bitter hops. Not offensive, a little intriguing. But pine resin? I should probably try it again just to be sure.

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.

Pours an amber / orange with a slight off white head. Aroma is nice floral hops with some fruitiness and some sweet malt. Mouth feel is medium, malts are sweet and hops are slightly bitter. I did not get the Pale ale experience on this one but all and all a good drinking beer.

Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a darker yellow with medium head. This supposedly had more IBUs than the "mild winter" but I couldn’t tell. Seemed more mellow to me. It was alright, but another "meh"

euniceradio (414) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Beautiful deep amber pour (almost expecting a Jurassic Park mosquito inside). Great thick beige head. Aroma faint of caramel and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced with fruity/spicy hops and smooth caramel malts. Perfect bittersweet smooth drinkability for a rich session ale at 4.3 ABV.

Pours a clear copper body with a nearly non-existent head. Pleasant sweet biscuit with a slightly dry finish. Like stated below, very simple and easy drinking.

Look: pours a gold straw color. Thick white head. Smell: hoops in the beginning. Pine flavors almost zero fruit smell. Taste: taste pint, slightly bitter on the back end. Also good amount of malt. Feel: good carbonation. Easy on the palate. Not heavy at all. Leaves no film on the mouth. Overall: not a bad summer beer. Not as citrus as I like but still a good flavor. Well balanced. First drank: 5/25/14 at CCD

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
Aroma is mild yet pleasant with a touch of semi-sweet malts and perhaps a spicing from hops. A real solid smelling beer considering the bitter style. The drink is bland with no real taste other than a minor bitterness of hops whereas the malts are missing altogether.

12 oz bottle. Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. Copper hue, lacey medium head. Citrus hops with malty notes make it bitter but quite bearable.
