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.

Draught @ Flying Saucer Little Rock 5-2-07. Clear golden copper. Faint sour aroma, some hops. Flavor is slightly sour, with a nice nutty finish. Not as fruity as some English PA’s but a good beer nonetheless.

Percy0103 (300) - MEXICO - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a small white head and a lot of gas. Aroma is not very strong, but there is some malt, caramel and yeast. Faint taste with some bitterness at the end. Light bodied with some carbonation and faint astringency. Aftertaste is very mild. Very easy to drink but only because it is very watery. Not much to say about this beer, except cute goose on the label. Wawk wawk

Gmku (296) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2004
I had this on tap in Chicago and then from the bottle in Iowa City and then on tap in Iowa City. The Iowa City waiter said it was the best beer he'd had in a long time. Poor bastard. I liked it a lot in Chicago and not so much in Iowa City in either form. On tap in Chicago it was creamy and delicious, just hopped so and slightly sweet. The Iowa City experiences were overly bitter and rather flavorless. Haven't been able to touch the stuff since, and it's scared me off their other products.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Medium brown color, small head. Roasted, nutty malts, floral hops with very little hop bitterness. Nice balance. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is malty, with a bit of bitterness. The malts shine through on this beer.

Thanks to Kyle for sharing this treat. Poured a cloudy orange with a withe head. Smell the hops in this one. Finish was bitter.

Copper hue, lacey medium head. Citrus hops with malty notes make it bitter but bearable. Found on tap at The Hornets Nest in Browns Mills, NJ.

On Tap, Decent beer. Excellent flavor for an English pale ale. I will add more to the decription once I get a hold of an actual bottle of the stuff.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a nice clear amber gold with a nice half-inch white head and great lacing. Lovely looking beer. Aroma is refreshingly complex, with lots of orange, straw and grass being balanced with roasted malt and dry-hop bitterness. Medium sweetness with a light hoppy bitterness and a slight sour citrus hint. Medium dry finish with a nice lively carbonation and lingering bitterness. Really tasty and complex bitter, will definitely try again especially in the summertime.

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was the 2nd best one.

Bottle. May be the worst Goose Island beer I've had. Nice appearance, so it was at least pretty to look at as it was poured down the drain.
