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.

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".

On draft. Pour was amber with minimal head. Taste was mild in all aspects with a fruity/floraly hop flavor and light caramel maltiness. Boring session beer that was decent.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2011
hops and citrus fruits are noticeable and slightly malty, deep amber colour, very slight haze, nice head, good lacing but not prominent, certainly bitter, creamy palate with quick bitter finish. Not remarkable but a fairly enjoyable quaff.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2011
Had this one at the Chicago Airport waiting for a connecting flight. Pours a golden-amber colour with an off-white head with a bit of lacing. The aromas are nice and hoppy. Unfortunately, not as tasty as the scent. Kind of watery but with a slight hoppiness. Overall, nicely refreshing for those who like hoppy beers, but not on the bitterness-side. Quite expensive at the airport though.

Medium amber pour with decent off-white head. Aromas of caramel and fruity hops. Somewhat light body and mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Initial taste is slighly bitter or sour, but then the caramel and sweetness of malts dominate from there on. Very easy-drinking brew.
