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.

Amber color with long lasting medium white head. Spicy on the nose, can’t place the spice at this time. Nice blend of hops and malt flavors.

On tap at Curraghs: Amber in color, minimal head. Had nice flavor but was lacking hops. Definetly better ales out there, but overall it was an okay beer

There was just nothing to this beer. The smell was very light, almost nonexistent. The flavor was very bland and lasted only a short second. Absolutely no aftertaste. I was extremely disapointed by this brew.

Bottle. Light to medium brown in color with a small whitish head. Aroma is very hoppy. Flavor is very hoppy with a little malt. A little better than your typical pale ale.

leebotton (185) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
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.

Bottle at Galileo Cafe, O’Hare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if you’re passing through.

ChristianHR (181) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013
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.

hero12 (180) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2010
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.

BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2011
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. It’s 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!

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