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.

Smells extremely pleasant - hoppy, but not overly so. Poured a great golden amber white a medium-sized white head. Taste is excellently smooth - medium bitterness, but very easy to drink and very good. Overall, it’s an excellent English Pale Ale that could benefit from a bit more hops, but that’s not a dealbreaker by any means.

Smells of cereal and toast. Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Taste is somewhat metallic and bland, but finishes with strong malt flavors.

Clear golden amber with fluffy white head. Aromas of hops and malty undertones. Taste slightly too sweet for me. Some bitterness.Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

DarkSong (333) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2014
12 oz bottle. It pours an amber color with a small white quickly fading head. It has a nice malty aroma. This is a incredibly drinkable beer. A mild hop bitterness in the background of a wonderfully rich malty beer. It has a nice toasty taste.

Nothing really stands out. No real aroma to speak of, little head. Dark reddish amber. My first sips tasted good; slightly fruity, refreshing. First beer of the night. After those first few sips it got boring. The further down the pint I got, the thinner and more tired I became of it. Very mild in all aspects, I guess a stepping stone beer.

Draft. Medium brown. Decent roasted malt flavor. Smallish off-white head. A little heavy in the bloat factor. Meh.

Copper pour with a sweet nose of caramel and malt. Bitter taste that transitions to that malt sweetness at end. Easy drinking.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2009
On tap at Gino’s East (O’Hare location) alongside the world’s best pizza. Pours slightly hazy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Lots of oatmeal raisin cookie in the aroma. Tastes mostly the same, but with a little more of a citrus/grass hop character. Medium-bodied, smooth, slightly bitter finish.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2010
Clear amber color, white head; fresh hoppy aroma with some doughy cookie notes; good body for the strength, smooth on the palate; pretty sweet flavor of biscuity malt with low bitterness.

Bottled on 10.07.13. Poured into a tumbler on 12.30.13. A: See through red/amber. Looks very carbonated. S: Pine, citrus. Smells like an APA. T: Pine, malty. M: Crisp. Lots of carbonation. Maybe too much. O: This didn’t seem complex. It was easy to drink, but boring.
