Inspired by visits to English country pubs, Honkerís Ale combines a fruity hop aroma with a rich malt middle to create a perfectly balanced beer. Immensely drinkable, Honkerís Ale is not only the beer you can trust but one youíll look forward to time and again.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Bottle: The sweet malti aromas are salivating though the tasting experience was mediocre. Donít get me wrong, I like this beer and would buy it again... it is a nice English bitter style, but comparatively to other great beers, this one lacks complexity. The aroma and taste are great but the beer could use some extra body, perhaps another fermentation to take it to the next level. Again, itís a good beer with the potential to be great with minor adjustments, one that I recommend.

Good pale ale, but too little hop taste compared to their IPA. Part of variety pack.

Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.

Bottle. Poured a golden color with a redish hint and very carbonated. Aroma of bittering hops is very present. Taste of Clove and citrus and hops is there.

Poured into a snifter glass. Was on top floor/bar in the 3rd largest building in Chicago so it only seemed right to go for a Goose Island beer. Nothing really special about this one. Reddish color with a malty-esc aroma/flavor. Beer wasnít special but given the circumstance it was a great beer.

Drink Goose Island Honkers Ale: Itís malty ass shit! Pours dishwater brown from bottle. Not much aroma. Big caramel on the tongue along with a shitload of carbonation. Finishes foamy.

Bottle at home. Dark orange color, white head that would make the beer lokk good if it lasted more than 10 seconds. Still a nice color. aroma is a bit hoppy, good hoppiness, but not mush else. Caramel dominates the taste, joined by abrubt sharp bitterness. Itís not bad, though Iíll admit I was maybe expecting a bit more from it cause of their nicely balanced ipa. Bitterness is decent though, and I guess thatís what they wanted to create since itís allegedly "inspired by english county pubs".
