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.

foyle (325) - 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.

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.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours caramel like body with frothy head. Looks quite nice. However, the aroma is a little more sad. Smells of pine hops, but not necessarily good, The flavor is easy, but it’s not interesting. It’s carbonated well. Overall, there’s nothing bad about this beer, but there’s nothing interesting with this beer. I’m just bored.

Pours a deep amber with a thick white foam that stays. Mild malty flavor with a slightly thick creamy vanilla mid taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

leebotton (321) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Incredibly malty and hoppy aroma, very sweet. Muddy brown appearance. Really malty, not very ’English country pubs’ to me but better actually. Although slightly surprised by the sweetness, possibly some unfermented malt going on here - not sure. Good, although somewhat simple.
