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.

29-01-12 Bouteille: Ambrée-orangée, limpide et claire, très légère effervescence et mousse abondante et épaisse qui disparait asser rapidement. Arômes fruitée et maltée avec des notes de farine et de fleurs. Légèrement sucrée, sans réelle amertume, bien balancé, fraiche et désaltérante. Crops léger avec une texture mince, mais avec une eptite rondeur en bouche. Carbonisation moyenne et finale maltée et asser courte. Bien gouteuse pour une bière à faible taux d’alcool et différente de la plénitude des big beers américaines.

A good Pale Ale. I am not a fan of this style, but I find this beer very drinkable.

Sweet, gentle hoppy aroma. Pale amber color with a rocky one inch white head. Grapefruit hop flavor, but very low bitterness compared to other big APA's. Nice, sweet, easy drinking pale ale with an American Pale hop flavor and an English Pale bitterness. Mind-numbingly easy drinking beer which I think is the standard for an American session ale. Go get some. Those of you reporting no head from this beer, rinse your glassware and let this one sit outside of the fridge for a while.

Helsdon (273) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontario’s LCBO domain I’ve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, I’ve 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. we’ve come a long way baby. Don’t worry about this one Tiki.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2011
Low, white foam on top of a cobber red ale. Aroma of sour malt, some hop and some orange. Flavour of malt and sitrus, with a pleasant bitternes in the back. Medium body, okey lenght, everything is very balanced. Summary: A decent ale, but nothing special.

Pours reddish amber with great head. Nose has mild malts, some dark fruits, plum, cherries and grapes. Very light in body, with taste of juicy red grapes. A slight bitterness on the finish. Good beer.

bipolar1 (268) - Hancock, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2001
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 It seems Goose Island beers fall a little short, as compared to say, New Holland Brewing. Finishes with a grapefruit-like citrus hop flavor.

MaltOne (267) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours light chestnut, brief white head. Faint malt aroma. Very light, approaching watery. Flavor is sweetish, light malt. A bit of fizz. Overall a good session beer. Pleasant but very light.
