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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 English Pint. Poured a burnt orange brown color with thin head and minimal lacing. Smells of hay and dough. Taste?s of bitter and slightly sour hops. Finish?s pretty clean with a decent aftertaste. Not a great beer, too bitter for me.

I was dubious when told this was the most popular beer at the popular Chicago restaurant I was visiting. But this is a pleasant surprise. I can’t comment on the color, as this was served in a bottle. Nice spicy and fruity hops aroma, gentle carbonation, slightly yeasty. Sits medium on the palate with a slight, gentle, tinny hop taste. Dry malt adds to sweetness. There is taste of orange peel. Finishes with slight bitterness that quickly leaves.

The first Goose Island beer I tried, and its a very good one. Noticably more hops and malt than the blonde ale, as well as an attractive appearance.
