COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hinez57 (202) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bread, biscuit, toffee aromas. Wonderfully clear with a nice toasty thin head. Toffee with hints of biscuit and grainy/grassy malt, touches of carmel. Stiff bitterness forms a solid backbone and lingering bitterness with lingering finish. Nice semi-soft mouthfeel, should be slightly softer. Overall hits the notes a classic english bitter should, but doesn’t shine in any single area. Middling.

Aromas of nuts, caramel, and orange peel. Clear orange-amber with a small, fairly lasting, white head. Dry, bitter, nicely balanced with earthy hops and nutty malt flavors. Light-medium body, crisp carbonation, and with a clean finish.

A decent beer, but not up to the level of other Goose Island Brews. Pours a yellow orange with a white head. Smells and tastes like tropical fruit, but a little boring. Had at bottle rock in napa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smell is yeast and light grain. Flavor is bready, slightly hoppy, with a noticeable english yeast character. Rubber in the aftertaste. Lighter bodied.

12 oz. bottle thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours clear rusty amber with a one finger head that reduces quickly leaving a skiff of foam. Aroma is like a bitter, rye bread, pepper, subtle caramel malt. The taste is less subtle on the caramel malt, bready and spicy again. Body is medium thin and carbonation is fairly high. Boring and not my style.
