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.

One of the better beers, although not as good as Sierra Nevada or Boulevard.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Copper pour into a shaker. Not much of an aroma. Hops and malts for an unimpressive flavor. Slight hops flavor at the end. A very crips brew.....make a great session beer. Not very memorable though.

ChristianHR (220) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013
The aroma is sweet with nodes of fruit and citrus. Has a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Has a very malty character with hints of coriander and nuts. A nice slightly bitter and fresh finish.

Had on draft at Goose Island Brewery, Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL. Dark amber in color with a thin white head that laces well. Taste is roasted malts and caramel. Smooth, Easy finish.

mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Pours a nice golden amber color with a white head and medium lacing. Very little aroma, just a bit of an apple scent and a little malt. Flavor is sour more than bitter with a little aftertaste.

BenDover (216) - Texas, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours a clear deep orange, lots of carbonation, about a finger’s worth of dense off-white foam leaving behind quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is very earthy and bready, with some caramel and a bit of fruit. Taste is biscuity and hoppy, a bit grassy, with a bitter finish. Nice stuff.

This beer is barely noticeable. The aroma is non-existent, the color is nothing special, in the taste is average.

This if a very good beer, and is very popular in Chicago. I had it on tap and from a bottle and it is always good.

Much better on tap than in bottles, this is a bottle review. It just doesn’t seem to have anything exciting going on. Certainly a very calm (boring) version of an ESB.
