3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

A damn fine ale (had this on tap). Good body, smooth initial taste, slight hoppy aftertaste, perfect finish.

Mmm...Poors medium brown with almost no head or lacing. Smells quite nice, with a nice hoppy aroma. Taste is mild and very well-balanced, and maybe a bit too sweet. Nice hop flavor, althought not too prounounced. Malty and citrusy. A good, easy to drink and straighforward beer.

I’m not a fan of the style, and if 312 or the IPA or any of the seasonals is on tap/on sale I’ll choose that. But if not, its still a solid ale: pretty hoppy without much sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honkes ale pours a bright and clear amber color. It has a good size head and is off white in color. Light carbonation. Aroma is malty with pale and crystal malts and light hop aroma. Flavor seems alittle weak. There is thin malts toast and some faint fruity esters at the end.
Medium feel with a bit of a harsh bitter finish.
Drinks pretty nice aside from the harsh finish.

Big thanks to footballguy TD32 for this midwest brew.
Pours a clear amber color that forms into a medium sized head that faded preetty quick. Smell is the smell of a bitter, pretty good. NOt a bad taste, but pretty light IMO for an English Bitter. A solid drinker though, just nothing special.

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.
