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.

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

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.

Had on draft at Goose Island Brewery, Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL. Dark amber in color with a thin white head that laces well. Taste is roasted malts and caramel. Smooth, Easy finish.

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.

Driftwood6 (214) - USA - JUN 16, 2007
On tap at Clybourn pub, Chicago. Actually tastes almost like an ESB to me-- maybe not quite bitter enough. I think this beer has a nice flavor-- but nothing spectacular. Probably a good conversion beer-- like Sam Adams, etc.

dukefan (214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2002
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.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2009
355ml bottle from Trader Joes Indianapolis. Pours a dark amber wth a thick head that didn’t last. Aroma is malty sweetness. Flavour is the same, with just enough hops to keep it from getting cloying, but not asserting themselves. Very nice bitter.
