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.

Good dark copper color. Nice lacing though the head does not hold up. Perfumy floral, bread and candied malt nose. Taste is flowery sweet biscuit and some mild light fruit. It’s definitely not an offensive attempt at a real English bitter. Wish I could have tasted this brew in the 90’s.

BenDover (214) - 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.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2009
355ml bottle from Trader Joes Indianapolis. Pours a dark amber wth a thick head that didn’t last. Aroma is malty sweetness. Flavour is the same, with just enough hops to keep it from getting cloying, but not asserting themselves. Very nice bitter.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2007
Mondial de la bière 07. Couleur orangée-cuivrée pâle, très légèrement voilée, mousse qui reste bien. Arôme houblonné, d’agrumes, et fruité. Goût doux de houblons et de grains, bon équilibre entre les deux. Un peu mince, carbonatation moyenne. Correcte.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 (draft) A great beer for starting out an evening, yet interesting enough to make an entire session out of it. Smooth and malty. Tastes like it should have a higher ABV.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2005
draft. nice orange color, hoppy citrus aroma, sweet-light malty taste with a grapefruit oily hop finish. Good and refreshing.

bigcat03 (210) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

zootfinster (210) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2006
It’s OK but not really for my taste. A little too citric and bitter. Seems quite carbonated

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2007
12 oz bottle, Wolfgang Puck’s, O’Hare Airport. Crystal copper color, white hed, nice lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and spicy hops. Big malty flavor, hops not over the top but well done. If available to me locally, I would make this my house ale.

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