COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Incredibly malty and hoppy aroma, very sweet. Muddy brown appearance. Really malty, not very íEnglish country pubsí to me but better actually. Although slightly surprised by the sweetness, possibly some unfermented malt going on here - not sure. Good, although somewhat simple.

Poured a nice tan color with a light tan head. Overpowering nose of hops. Almost a spicy hop taste that has a slightly bitter finish. Light carbonation. Very good beer.

Clear copper pour with a rapidly fading ivory head. Very nice malty, toasty, roasty aroma with a hint of raisin. Malty graham cracker flavor with hints of molasses and a slight sweet aftertaste. Ah, Honkers Ale. Itís been a very long time since I had one of these. Once my standard when I lived in Chicago. AB-InBev buyout be damned ... these guys will always make great beer. Cheers to Goose Island!

12 oz bottle pours clear amber. Hints of citrus and slightly malty. Not very bitter and relatively refreshing and easy to drink.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Purchased a six pack of bottles. Pours amber red. Light palate, yet quite flavorful. Very drinkable beer, will buy again.

Good for what it is, Honkerís Ale is a pleasing choice for when Iím really not sure what to drink: Head back to what got me in to craft beer and have something nice and simple with just a little character. A light spicy hop mixes with some bread and funk to create a subtle aroma. The taste was a nice, smooth malt tone with notes of light fruit, biscuit, yeast and soft carbonation. Good session beer.

The aroma is sweet with nodes of fruit and citrus. Has a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Has a very malty character with hints of coriander and nuts. A nice slightly bitter and fresh finish.

Red/ochre colour. Small head. Close to no aroma, but what I smell is hoppy and ok. Sub-standard, boring bitter taste. Donít waste your money.

Body is dark yellowish brown with very little head. The aroma is sweet like a mixture of honey, flowers, lemon and orange. The flavor is fairly sweet as well, but kind of watery tasting without a whole lot of carbonation (might just be the tap) . There is a malty flavor with a bit of orange and lemon. Not much hops.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Nice frothy head, clear golden color. Little aroma, very light. Has a crisp light flavor, I was expecting it to be a bit stronger but I enjoy this. More of a late lunch beer. It's palate has almost an abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
