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.

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottled, 355ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Orange gold with fizzed white head. This is way too carbonated for me and certainly to match ’pub’ beers, wet cardboard on the aroma and initial flavour. There is a fruity sweetness within the malt, sweet orange notes then a reasonable earthy leafy hop, but the initial flavour put me off I’m sorry to say. Not for me.

Bottle @ thewolfs pre-festival tasting, Kolding.
[thank you, Chris_o]
Pours clear copper with a fine, creamy film head. Aroma is softly hoppy, but not much else. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is also softly hoppy, okay sweet malty, but only low bitterness. Very dull.

FatPhil (11512) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2009
330ml bottle (K CM, Helsinki) - at 4.7% (supermarket strength)
Rich amber, small persistent head. Lovely sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Some more savoury and spicy aromas too, more like UK hops. Gentle carbonation, smooth palate. Caramelly maltiness, and also a fruity sweetness, augmented with a tasty well balanced bitter hoppiness. Some hints of soap occasionally. Fruity and spicy hoppy finish. A touch sticky alas. However, it’s a good effort from a US brewer at this strength, better than your average UK bitter.

Lubiere (11379) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2006
Hazy golden amber ale with a thick creamy white head. Light caramel malt with floral hops. In mouth, a crisp maltwith floral piney hops, rather short, but good. Trade with Piscator. Thanks Kris.
