Kudo's to this beer, it seems to be a wonderful compromise between a traditional English Pale and and American Pale. The color is a sharp brite gold. The aroma wins me over with a fresh floral hop aroma. The flavor is slightly malty with a hint of caramel malt, perhaps even a bit of special B. Very balanced between aroma, malt, and undetected bitterness. Clean refreshing finish that keeps me coming back for more. My only Complaint about Honkers is that it is so good when I drink it at the Brewpub I tend to shy away from the other specialty beers because I am won over by its great taste.

On tap...Pours an amber color with a frothy white head....taste has a bitter finish with a mix of carmel...you get some carmel aromas, but also some small notes of orchard fruits...not their best offering...wasnít really my cup of tea

Dayton Dragons single-A baseball game. An oasis is the desert. I almost cried. A good beer under normal circumstances, a great one under these.

Good Session Beer....Iím on number 6 right now....íhicupí Pours burnt orange colored with a nice head that fades quickly. Aroma is not offensive and not very strong. Tastes like most pale ales. Itís a staple that Chicago can be proud of!

Burnt orange hue, small, lasting head. Malty bread/biscuit aroma. Smooth palate with similar flavor, sweet at the start, a moderate bitter bite at the finish. Sessionable.
