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.

Jan. 23, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. This was the only serviceable beer I could find at Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l whle passing through there recently, and I was somewhat surprised to see it turn up on a shelf here in Upstate NY today. Amber color, nice balance with a tasty, candyish malt profile and some slightly spicy & fruity hops. The brewers were really on to something here, but stumbled a bit with the lightness & watery finish.

Nice malts... hops were there too, but not as much as i would have expected. Sort of reminded me of Killian’s with more hops. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours clear golden brown. Light head with little lacing. Nice aroma with a hint of fruits. Medium body with a sharp bitter taste that is somewhat lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

As Goose Island’s description says, this is a balanced beer. Unfortunately everything was balanced towards the bland direction. Decent to look at, but a snooze to drink. Mouthfeel was a particular letdown, seemed very watery.

Slight above average session beer. Nothing incredibly special and nothing really negative going on here either. Mild hop presence mild malt presence.

drank this with spicy gumbo and it was the perfect easy to drink ale to wash it down with. I’d drink it again

An average ESB for the common man. You can find this at O’Hare at Chili’s, FOX Sports bar/grill. A better alternative than the BMC options. Nothing great, but decent.

TATE (404) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2012
On tap at the Water Street Tavern. Pours a dark ruby color with a thick head. Nice balance of malt and bitterness but there was nothing outstanding about this beer and it was kind of forgetable. Well made though.

A soft yellow with an ivory head. A good body with a normal flavor and bitter-malty balance.
