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.

Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontarioís LCBO domain Iíve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, Iíve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. weíve come a long way baby. Donít worry about this one Tiki.

Notes of swamp grass, dirt, pine, butter, and toast. Definitely some roasted malts in here. To be honest, Iím not very familiar with this style and donít have much of a reference point in terms of how this is "supposed" to taste. Itís not bad, though. I find it interesting enough. Not really a refreshing beer, and not really a hop or malt bomb. Iím getting a little bit of a taste that a Magic Hat beer in a spring mix pack a few years ago had. Thereís maybe just a hint of what youíd get in a Stock Ale, an Irish Red, or an ESB blended together. Also reminds me a tad of some of the Wild Goose (defunct mid-atlantic brewer) beers- similar hops or yeast strain, possibly. Low ABV for an American craft beer, but I think thatís characteristic of English-style bitters.

Hop and citrus aroma. Hops to start but didnít get any malt because the lemon flavor was a bit overpowering. After a few sips my tastebuds readjusted and it wasnít bad. Could just use a bit more hops. Lips were smacking at the end from the lemon still.

Poured a dark copper out of the bottle. Nice head and lasting lace. Aromatic hops greet you as you raise the glass to your nose. Tingly crispness greets the tongue and mouth followed by spicy hops. There is a slight citrus, crisp aftertaste. Always pleasing (especially on tap at a favorite pizza joint)

On draft, at the United Center... Beautiful amber color, with nice crisp malt taste, very clean and easy to drink.

Had this at a fish fry and I donít know if it was the fish or the beer, but they both were great. Nice Pale Ale with an amber color and very smooth finish.

An above average ale. A few samples have been a bit yeasty/cloudy. Nothing particulary wrong or right with it. A fine all around session beer, but nothing in need of a critical tasting.

Very hoppy notes, and initial flavor. Overwhelms a lot of the malt flavor, which seems unusual in a beer with a caramel hue.

Bottle. Pours clear golden brown. Light head with little lacing. Nice aroma with a hint of fruits. Medium body with a sharp bitter taste that is somewhat lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma was not as bold as I expected; subdued, malty and pleasant. A fine looking deep orange and amber beer. The head was fairly minute/thin. Lighter on the palate than expected -- buoyant almost, a bit thin and rather crisp. Flavor is malty, a bit of bread, and a definite citrus lingers. A fine beer but certainly not exceptional.
