COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honkerís Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honkerís Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one youíll look forward to time and again.

Iíve had this bottled and on tap, and either way itís an ultra-dependable beer. I canít think of anything bad to say about it. Solidly recommendable even to the relatively unadventurous. Your grandmother would enjoy Honkerís Ale.

Bottle. Pours a amber, brown color with a medium white head. A nice malty ale and a great hop balance. Aroma is mostly sweet malts, and the taste follows the great malt and hops balance. A nice drinking beer with a medium palate.

Mmm...Poors medium brown with almost no head or lacing. Smells quite nice, with a nice hoppy aroma. Taste is mild and very well-balanced, and maybe a bit too sweet. Nice hop flavor, althought not too prounounced. Malty and citrusy. A good, easy to drink and straighforward beer.

A damn fine ale (had this on tap). Good body, smooth initial taste, slight hoppy aftertaste, perfect finish.

35,5cl bottle. Murky orange color with rather little head. Malts, vegetables and hops in the nose. Flavor is malty with a nice hoppy touch to it. Solid brew.

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.

Iím not a fan of the style, and if 312 or the IPA or any of the seasonals is on tap/on sale Iíll choose that. But if not, its still a solid ale: pretty hoppy without much sweetness.

Big thanks to footballguy TD32 for this midwest brew. Pours a clear amber color that forms into a medium sized head that faded preetty quick. Smell is the smell of a bitter, pretty good. NOt a bad taste, but pretty light IMO for an English Bitter. A solid drinker though, just nothing special.
