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.

Damn smooth pale ale. Orange in color. I drank these while fishing on the boat. damn tastey, but I was mostly concentrating on catching walleye.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Light brown pour with a bubbly white head with decent lacing. Aroma of nutty English malts, light toffee and earthy hoppiness. Light sweetness in flavor with more nuttiness, toffee and earthy hops. Medium light bodied and a nice drinker. -Fish!

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2006
The epitome of an average beer. Pours an orange/amber color with a good white head. Aroma of citrus with some sweetness. Flavor is nicely balanced between the hops and the sweetness of the malts, although the malts win out a bit. Very drinkable, but not particularly impressive.

Nice round beer. Aroma and flavor is of a well balanced beer. It has a nice, but not overwhelming complexity from beginning to end. Nice seasonal type brew.

foyle (232) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance-- pours a cream colored 1/2" head that recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is amber/copper and mostly clear with abundant carbonation bubbles streaming. Aroma-- very malty -- smells of slight cinnamon and a moist dough, such as a warm muffin from the oven, a peppery hop spice is also evident. Mouthfeel-- mostly light, watery, and refreshing. Has a somewhat lager like mouthfeel with a dry finish, although there is some of the fluffiness which should be present in the English Bitter style. Flavor-- well balanced, hops are in the background and subservient to the malt. Flavors include a peppery and earthy hop spice, a rich bready malt (again like a fresh warm muffin, or a fresh whole wheat bread). There is some caramel and just a hint of cinnamon. This beer is not overly sweet and the aftertaste has a lingering citrus rind bitterness.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2007
It pours a small white head, and appears kind of a slightly cloudy copper color. The nose is very hoppy and nice. The flavor is well-balanced, though more to the hops side but in a very pleasant, not overbearing way.

Aroma is a good balance of amber malt, english hops and a touch of caramel. A little nutty too. Pours amber colour with fair lacing head. Taste is well balanced too, clearly an english style bitter. Getting some slight roasted malt, quite a short aftertaste, slight biscuit note. Pretty enjoyable.

Draft- Thai Place. LIght hop nose. Good amber color and light tan head. Hopy flavor with a slight maltiness to it. Fruit flavors in the middle. Not bad.
