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.

shrubber85 (9135) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Fresh berry malt aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Lightly sweet malt flavor with light hops finish. An easy drinking beer - a bit light on the hops for the style but still very good.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
I can’t believe I’ve never rated this before. The pour is a deep burnished copper colour with a thick off white head… pretty good looking really. Lovely nose with a soft fruitiness composed of cherry and a touch of berries. There is a bit of caramelly/bready character on the back. Soft and chewy with just a bit of herbal/spicy hoppiness. Fruity and lovely. Really, quite a surprise how much I like this.

Mmmm, light and soapy with a metallic edge. Not a good beer.

gnoff (8795) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2006
Bottle from a friend that brought it home from the USA to Sweden.
Brown color. Scent and taste is well balanced by malt and hops. Nice enough bitterness.

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2010
(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, orange amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Sweet cara-malty and slightly nutty aroma with fruity (citrus, grape-fruit) and slightly spicy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty, initially bready and subtle nutty taste with fruity aroma hops; almost dry, sweet-bitter but also a bit slim and short finish. Otherwise an aromatic and likeable Ale. 22.II.10

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 I really liked this one. Golden orange colour with little head. Hoppy fruity (orange) aroma. The flavour is also orangey and very smooth a typical pale ale taste. Very pleasant and moreish. It appears this is right up some people’s street but not others. I’m a fan though. Score 3.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 3.5. Average becomes 3.6

DrSilverworm (8697) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2013
12oz bottle.... Brewed in Baldwinsville, NY. Labeled 4.2%. Bottled 3/1/13. Pours a clear orange, slightly red color. Thin off-white head. Few bits of lace, nothing really sticks. Lighter body. Kind of lighter, but rougher carbonation. Lightly dry in the body, but with a light stickiness in the finish. Some rich malt, lightly toasty, some caramel malt, light musty, light metallic, light hint of spice, little bit of dark fruit. Not a really well integrated combo, overall the beer is not very agreeable or tasty, and definitely tastes macro. Moderate bitter taste, moderate malty sweet, lightly spicy. Pretty disappointing beer.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours amber with white head, aroma is a bit hoppy with some malt. Taste up front is a bit of floral sweet hops with some sweet caramel back bone and a bit of a dry and sweet finish. Not bad.
