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.

Slight above average session beer. Nothing incredibly special and nothing really negative going on here either. Mild hop presence mild malt presence.

MarkBarnes (404) - Waterville, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Jan. 23, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. This was the only serviceable beer I could find at Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l whle passing through there recently, and I was somewhat surprised to see it turn up on a shelf here in Upstate NY today. Amber color, nice balance with a tasty, candyish malt profile and some slightly spicy & fruity hops. The brewers were really on to something here, but stumbled a bit with the lightness & watery finish.

drank this with spicy gumbo and it was the perfect easy to drink ale to wash it down with. I’d drink it again

jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2008
An average ESB for the common man. You can find this at O’Hare at Chili’s, FOX Sports bar/grill. A better alternative than the BMC options. Nothing great, but decent.

A soft yellow with an ivory head. A good body with a normal flavor and bitter-malty balance.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bouteille de 355 ml (12 oz fl.) achetée lors d’un voyage à Chicago. Dégustée le 11 novembre 2010. Bière rousse voilée. Mousse peu, col mince beige, éphémère. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de froment, de berries et de pain grillé. Très douce, assez sucrée, peu amère. Très bonne mais un peu mince, manque un peu de caractère.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2004
This a quality light bodied beer. Nice copper color. Mild aroma of malt, hops, and a hint of citrus, possibly orange peel. Flavors are dominated by hops with an inkling of malt and caramel flavors up front. Easy drinking.

TATE (400) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2012
On tap at the Water Street Tavern. Pours a dark ruby color with a thick head. Nice balance of malt and bitterness but there was nothing outstanding about this beer and it was kind of forgetable. Well made though.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Amber colored. Lots of hops and malt on the nose. A real smooth, hoppy ale with a bitter finish. Quite good.

SlimHabib (399) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden brown. Light head with little lacing. Nice aroma with a hint of fruits. Medium body with a sharp bitter taste that is somewhat lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
