COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honkerís Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honkerís Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one youíll look forward to time and again.

Had on draft at Goose Island Brewery, Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL. Dark amber in color with a thin white head that laces well. Taste is roasted malts and caramel. Smooth, Easy finish.

This if a very good beer, and is very popular in Chicago. I had it on tap and from a bottle and it is always good.

Much better on tap than in bottles, this is a bottle review. It just doesnít seem to have anything exciting going on. Certainly a very calm (boring) version of an ESB.

Nice amber color. Good hoppy aroma. Slight carbonation and it had a nice mild aftertaste.

Driftwood6 (214) - USA - JUN 16, 2007
On tap at Clybourn pub, Chicago. Actually tastes almost like an ESB to me-- maybe not quite bitter enough. I think this beer has a nice flavor-- but nothing spectacular. Probably a good conversion beer-- like Sam Adams, etc.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2009
355ml bottle from Trader Joes Indianapolis. Pours a dark amber wth a thick head that didnít last. Aroma is malty sweetness. Flavour is the same, with just enough hops to keep it from getting cloying, but not asserting themselves. Very nice bitter.

BritAlesRule (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Good dark copper color. Nice lacing though the head does not hold up. Perfumy floral, bread and candied malt nose. Taste is flowery sweet biscuit and some mild light fruit. Itís definitely not an offensive attempt at a real English bitter. Wish I could have tasted this brew in the 90ís.

1guywith_aboat (212) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Copper amber color and beige head. Aroma up front is crystal malt and some grassy/ fruity hops. Flavor is more malt forward with some delicate hops lending a hand to balance. Very good beer.

A caramel, malty British ale-esque treat with a modest amount of hops to balance. Doesn't set the world on fire but a fine representation of the style. Rated by BrewTom

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 (draft) A great beer for starting out an evening, yet interesting enough to make an entire session out of it. Smooth and malty. Tastes like it should have a higher ABV.
