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.

12 oz bottle from acknud! Nose of grassy hops, grain, and an off note; clear copper with a big beige head; flavor has caramel, some light hop bitterness, and a bit of peppery spices.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2008
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 ’spose.

Fin (7417) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
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.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Body is dark yellowish brown with very little head. The aroma is sweet like a mixture of honey, flowers, lemon and orange. The flavor is fairly sweet as well, but kind of watery tasting without a whole lot of carbonation (might just be the tap) . There is a malty flavor with a bit of orange and lemon. Not much hops.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2008
bottle from wisconsinbeer, thanks! Deep copper pour, barely any head at all. Aroma is very malty and some sawdust notes(previous entry below me nailed it!). Flavor is pretty plain, malty and maybe a bit nutty. Slight hop profile lends itself to the english style. Not bad, not amazing.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours with an amber color. Definitely a beer brewed in the traditional nglish style with strong caramel aroma and flavor. Flavors of toffee and butterscotch with a medium palate.
