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.

Lagerboy (1857) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
341 ml bottle. Clear medium orange copper, mostly fading off-white foam. Promising fruity hoppy aroma. Taste falls a bit flat, citric herbal hop, faintly floral, lean slightly sweet malts, thin and barely bitter. Softer carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Just okay. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

The first thing I smell is grapefruit, which is odd because upon closer inspection sweet malts and darker fruits prevail. The taste is odd as well: there is some mild citrus and semi-sweet malts and then...nothing. Very clean with little carbonation. There’s enough going on to make me say ’interesting’ instead of ’flat.’

Light bitterness, crisp, malty and fruity with a nice balace throughout. Pours a bright golden amber with a fizzy beige head. Light bitterness on the finish with a moderate malt profile.

Overall I enjoyed the beer. It has a nice aroma and a good taste. Specially enjoyed the bitterness of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1252 - 15.09.2014. On tap at Keg N Cork growler bar. Clear golden pour with a thick, frothy white foam that seems to go on forever. Taste is quite bland, bitter malts, honey and very creamy. Finish is quite smooth, rather enjoyable.

Another in the kinder, gentler pale category.

Hey, I’m a diehard Chicagoan and from the Northside to boot, so I have to stick with the best local beer around. This is definitely an icon and it didn’t hurt that I used to live across the street from the brewery.

A good ale. Reminded me a little od Sam Adams, only not as strong of a pecan lager taste. Overall, very good.
