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.

Delightfully malty. Very well-balanced. Not especially hoppy, but still pleasantly bitter.

Got a 6 pack of this for my Birthday last year. My friend from Indiana said this was her favorite regional beer, now I see why.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Amber with good, foamy beige head / Light to medium body with good balance and finish / Flavors of toasted malt, orange peel, lemon, and candied caramel flavors / A fine example of the style.

Heavy malt, caramel, moderate hoppiness of flowers, earth, wind, and fire. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. This is one of my favourite Pale Ales.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a brief description and a "bottled on" date but no ABV%. Appearance: On top of a nice orange amber body sits a good two finger tall eggshell colored foam head. The head hangs on well and makes cool lace patterns on the glass. Smell: The aroma has a nice sweet maltiness with caramel and a good balance of citrus hops. Taste/Palate: Up first there is a simple bready maltiness with some mild caramel like sweetness and light toasted grain with faint hints of fruitiness. This is balanced by pleasant citrus and leafy hop bitterness. The medium body has a smooth feel and drinks easily. Notes: This is just a strait up tasty ale with great drinkability

Honker’s Ale is one of those beers that you can drink at pretty much any given time. It doesn’t have any characteristics that particularly stand out. It’s just a damn good beer that’s very easy to drink. While it won’t even be seen as anything special, it’s an ale that works for every occasion.

Reliably found at Winestyles in Macon, GA. Love the low alcohol bitters, and this one was my first. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this brew at The John Labatt Centre (Budweiser Gardens) in London Ontario. Been wanting to try a Goose Island product for some time now, and I wasnt disappointed. Smells like an Ale. No hop smell. Pours a dark caramel colour. Very little head. Taste is what an ale should be. Not overpowering. Good amount of carbonation with little aftertaste. Overall I was very impressed and I will be having this again in the future. The Beer Bearon MB
