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.

Fruity and a little bit of malt. I pick up some smoke in the finish. I like Bellís and 3Floyds much better though.

Pours a slightly hazy amber, minimal head. Aroma is faint and is sweet malt and spicy hops. Flavor is malty and slightly bready Caramel and a hint of nuttiness, with a nice spicy bitterness. Finish is dry. A nice hop/malt blend. Very good.

Draught @ Flying Saucer Little Rock 5-2-07. Clear golden copper. Faint sour aroma, some hops. Flavor is slightly sour, with a nice nutty finish. Not as fruity as some English PAís but a good beer nonetheless.

I had this on tap in Chicago and then from the bottle in Iowa City and then on tap in Iowa City. The Iowa City waiter said it was the best beer he'd had in a long time. Poor bastard. I liked it a lot in Chicago and not so much in Iowa City in either form. On tap in Chicago it was creamy and delicious, just hopped so and slightly sweet. The Iowa City experiences were overly bitter and rather flavorless. Haven't been able to touch the stuff since, and it's scared me off their other products.

Copper hue, lacey medium head. Citrus hops with malty notes make it bitter but bearable. Found on tap at The Hornets Nest in Browns Mills, NJ.

Helsdon (290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontarioís LCBO domain Iíve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, Iíve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. weíve come a long way baby. Donít worry about this one Tiki.

On Tap, Decent beer. Excellent flavor for an English pale ale. I will add more to the decription once I get a hold of an actual bottle of the stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Medium brown color, small head. Roasted, nutty malts, floral hops with very little hop bitterness. Nice balance. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is malty, with a bit of bitterness. The malts shine through on this beer.
