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.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Secret Santa 2006. Pours a clear dark gold colored body under a small fizzy white head that fell to a whispy film. Aroma is fairly light, a little floral hoppiness over a lightly toasted and bready malt base. Flavor is moderately hoppy with a light bitterness on the finish. The malt is bready and light. Mouthfeel is light bodied, watery in texture, with a decent amount of prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland and pedestrian offering from Goose Island. Alot like 100 other Pale Ales Iíve had before.

joefflin (68) - USA - JAN 4, 2007
A pretty average beer for Goose Island. Pours amber with a white head. Citrus and malts. A good alternate beer to go out and drink with, but nothing that is completely remarkable. Decent.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2011

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a clear, light amber color with moderate off-white foam. Aromas and flavors fairly true-to-style for an English pub bitter, except slightly watery and metallic. Decent but not great.

While in Chi-town, I tried this at a local pub. Not great. Not bad. Not mediocre. It is what it was, and shall be. It was who I thought it would be, but I let it off the hook. But I digress. If there was a table with this stuff, Schlitz and Blatz, I would pound the Blatz, eye the Schlitz and let the ill-educated city folk have at this overpriced swill. All the while gleaming with VICTORY beaming from my blood shot eyes. Donít question it. Donít bother. Iíve been to Milwaukee so I ought to know.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draught at TJís: Very faint malt and grain aroma. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, grain, and some spice. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt, hop, spice finish is lightly dry.

foxo82 (645) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Pershore Road, Birmingham. Pours headless, mid brown/amber. Hoppy, fruitcake aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel - perhaps a little too fizzy for a bitter. The flavour is pleasant enough - bitter, nutty, fruity, dry, slightly smokey and undeniably drinkable - but the finish is too abrupt and the taste a tad watery.
