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.

Very hoppy, a delicious pale ale. I have never had this prior to the AB purchase, but it is wonderful and I don’t see what people are so worried about.

Bottle. Medium brown color, small head. Roasted, malts, floral hops with very little hop bitterness. Nice balance. Finish is clean and crisp.

Very good beer. Hoppy but not overly so. Decent lasting head and good carbonation.

This a a decent ESB. It has a pleasant aroma and a dcent hop bite to it. It pours brown and doesnt have an overpwering aroma, but it is there nonetheless.

Very nice aroma poured out of the bottle on this one, flowers and spices from the hops. Looks to be bottle conditioned so that is a plus! Quality session brew, and quite a good clone of a british ale for an american brewery ;)

A good PA with hints of being an amber ale. Sweet, caramel malt and a spicy hop finish with subtle fruit. Roasted, sweet malt lingers on the palate. The taste is good, might eb even better if the beer wasnt a little watery. A nice surprise during a layover at O’Hare.

I had this on draft at Brighton Music Hall in Boston at a Stranglers concert. The beer was not as good as the show. It was a dark amber color with little head. It had a malt sweetness with a bitter aftertaste. The palette is quickly overwhelmed and the beer goes south fast. My first thought was actually dirty tap lines, so if I get to try it again, I will revise my review.

Was a very smooth beer with no bitter after taste. It is rather malty but I would definitely drink it again.

It had a cloudy orange color with a nice frothy head. It seemed fairly carbonated with nice lacing and a very balanced flavor.
