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.

Aroma: Slight maltiness initially. Some frusity esters come out as it warmed as well. Hint of earthy hops. Appearance: Crystal clear pale color, low head but good rentention. Taste: Initial sweetness from the malt gives way to a mild bittering on the tounge. Has a very clean aftertaste. Palate: Very good mouthfeel for the style, clean finish with a nice malty and hoppy aftertaste. Overall impression: A very nice beer, I find it hard to find a good english bitter in the US, but this is a great example of the style.

On tap @ Clybourn: Amber color. Floral aroma. Rich fresh bread and biscuit maltiness, low carbonation. I thought this was a nice, flavorful interpretation.

PlutonowyMan (480) - POLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Kolor bursztynowy, miedziany, klarowny. Piana w kolorze ecru, niezbyt wysoka i momentalnie si? redukuje, tworzy zaledwie cienki film. Aromat: s?odowo, jest s?odko, karmel, br?zowy cukier w smaku jest w?a?ciwie podobnie, karmel br?zowy cukier, lekka przypalona nuta, i ... ... grapefruitowa, sucha goryczka. ?rednio d?uga idealnie balansuj?ca s?odycz, to du?y plus. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do niskiego.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Hazy amber color with floating detritus and a low amount of activity. Weak white half a finger head that lasts no more than 5 minutes, with moderate amount of legs. Aromas of caramel, butterscotch, and bread. Flavors of sweet grains, lemon, caramel, ginger, herbal and floral spices. Bready, roasted and grassy feel. Pleasant sweetness with a nice sharp feel. Smooth medium to full body with a perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Light to medium strength finish of short length, ending with a sweet smoky caramel feel and faint grassy noble spices. Overall good quality craft. Tasty flavors that are well balanced. Good freshness and nicely bodied.

12oz bottle. Pours Amber with medium head. Not much of a nose. Hoppy, sweet to mild bitter. Not a bad drink, but nothing remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (5400) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2016
Clean orange brown body, large stable head. Bready malts with American pine hops, nice. Taste is simpler, but still nice. The clean fermentation makes it very drinkable. Nice brew. (33 cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven)
