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.

Pours light amber with small nicely lacing head. Quite hoppy, and light to medium malty aroma. Rather mild, well balanced and round bitter taste.

One of the better beers, although not as good as Sierra Nevada or Boulevard.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On draft at Clybourn goose island brewpub. Wow, this was an excellent APA. The hops and malt was very balanced. Aroma is faint grapefruit, semi sweet, and hoppy. Color is amber. Taste is semi sweet, citrus hops, malty, and caramel taste. Finish is crisp, clean, and not lingering. A must try. A. This would be great with a burger, steak, or pork chops.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Copper pour into a shaker. Not much of an aroma. Hops and malts for an unimpressive flavor. Slight hops flavor at the end. A very crips brew.....make a great session beer. Not very memorable though.

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.

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

Much better on tap than in bottles, this is a bottle review. It just doesn’t seem to have anything exciting going on. Certainly a very calm (boring) version of an ESB.
