COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Good Session Beer....Iím on number 6 right now....íhicupí Pours burnt orange colored with a nice head that fades quickly. Aroma is not offensive and not very strong. Tastes like most pale ales. Itís a staple that Chicago can be proud of!

TheBeerGod (5047) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2007
Draft at Mother Hubbards. Went here a couple of times after work at midnight. I was glad they were open until 4am! Came out coppery amber. Nose is hoppy and lightly floral. Nose reminded me of a pale ale, but more towards American now that Iím seeing this as an English style. Taste is hoppy, floral, dry malts, and light nutty notes. Body is medium and has average carbonation. Finishes with more floral notes, soft citrusy hops and malts notes. Subtle spices as well. Not bad.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with kramer17801 (thanks!). Bottle labeled BB 031007. Poured a medium and slightly hazy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel and some citrus. Tastes of toasted malts, caramel, and some citrus. Drinkable but kinda boring.

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2007
Pours a brownish amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted malts, caramel, and some yeast. Flavor is pretty well balanced with the hops and toasted malts, but it seems a touch watery and doesnít have much of an after taste. Wasnít too impressed with this brew.

Bottle, Beers of Europe. Muddy orange amber colour, thin whiteish head. Sweetish mandarin aroma. Some fruit and hops in the flavour, but at 4.3% lacking any real clout. Vaguely above average I íspose.

Bottle picked up from Westholm, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon consumed this evening 17-05-08 Mid amber thin white head, some soapy hops. Refreshing beer, I agree with the commercial description this is quite english in style, reasonably well balanced bitter/sweet flavours, light fruitiness, just wish it had bit more panache.
