Aroma is a good balance of amber malt, english hops and a touch of caramel. A little nutty too. Pours amber colour with fair lacing head. Taste is well balanced too, clearly an english style bitter. Getting some slight roasted malt, quite a short aftertaste, slight biscuit note. Pretty enjoyable.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Honkes ale pours a bright and clear amber color. It has a good size head and is off white in color. Light carbonation. Aroma is malty with pale and crystal malts and light hop aroma. Flavor seems alittle weak. There is thin malts toast and some faint fruity esters at the end. Medium feel with a bit of a harsh bitter finish. Drinks pretty nice aside from the harsh finish.

Light orange, big head that dissipates quickly, hoppy-sweet aroma, nicely balanced pale ale, citrus and orchard fruit, long pleasantly bitter finish. Simple but enjoyable.

On tap at the Clarke Street Ale House. Amber in colour and hazy with a thin white head. Sweet taste with a hint of caramel, spices, nutmeg. Complex and quite nice.

Bottle stumbled upon at local grocery store. Pours a rather brownish golden clear beer, with a minimal head. Fruity, biscuity, caramely aroma with some citrus notes. Great body, almost oily in my mouth. Wonderfully hoppy citrus flavor with some grapefruit, more biscuits and some caramel. Slightly bitter. Great balance, I think, and easy to drink. I wouldn’t mind more than one of these!

On tap @ Bar Louie’s in Flint. Hard to detect much of an aroma... a little hops, but not much else. Flavor was of malt and hops. It was OK... nothing special.

Damn smooth pale ale. Orange in color. I drank these while fishing on the boat. damn tastey, but I was mostly concentrating on catching walleye.

Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.
