I would take no other beer inside the continental United States over this one. What can I say, the Windy City never lets you down

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 This is a terrific beer. Nearly perfect, really. It is a malt ninja in an era of H-bombs. Hop heads (me included), take heed of how a well balanced, subdued, old-school ESB is made! Yes, I am aware that it is listed under "English Pale Ale"--It is an ESB through and through! A perfect blend of malts, yeast and hop characters, with smoky and bready malts taking centre stage. From the great honey and biscuits nose to the apricot and peat notes in the mouth, to the great and prolonged finish; this beer is superb. Worth moving to Chicago for.

One of my favorite bitters nice color... Not overly hoppy. And not too carbonated. A real traditional English bitter.

Pours clear golden amber with a fluffy white head. Smells hoppy with malty undertones. Has a mild flavor, lightly bitter and still satisfying. Between light to medium-bodied with a creamy texture and softer mouth carbonation, Honker’s Ale finishes smooth and satisfying. Quite drinkable.

A very good beer. Wonderful color, Goes down extremely smooth. A beer that I can drink quite a few of without getting bored of the flavor.

Heavy malt, caramel, and milk shocolate, moderate hoppiness of flowers and pine, oak, toffee, honey, syrup, and alcohol. Head was small, off white mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet and acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. Overall a very excellent Pale Ale.

Slight hop aroma with some yeasty notes. Feels great on the tongue and the roof of the mouth. Taste is classic to the English style with an American hops flourish.

A very approachable Bitter, glad to see Honker’s now available locally - love the combination and balance of light hoppy flavors mixed with near amber malts.
