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

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

Honkerís Ale is one of those beers that you can drink at pretty much any given time. It doesnít have any characteristics that particularly stand out. Itís just a damn good beer thatís very easy to drink. While it wonít even be seen as anything special, itís an ale that works for every occasion.

Evaluated up against the BJCP.org #14A. Brilliant clear amber to copper colour with a tan head. Moderate spicy hop Aroma with some maltiness.Medium mouthfeel with some nice sparkling carbonation. The flavor is pleasently hoppy with some nice suttle bitterness at the end. There is a somewhat anonymous malt backbone, but it does support the hops of the beer well. There are some toasted caramel compounds in the flavor and aftertaste. Overall an over averages example of an English Pale Ale. Well brewed and balanced, but lacking a bit in the maltiness.
