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.

Very good beer. Hoppy but not overly so. Decent lasting head and good carbonation.

a friend told me to try this one a week ago while drinking summint pale ale. I noticed very similar charactieristics and in a blind taste test Iíd be stumped. We agreed its definitely as bitter or less so than the summit. Really tasty stuff, floral hops, rich flavor full of flowers, caramel malts, bisquity. anxious to try other gooses

I had this beer at Improv Olyimpic in downtown Chicago. I was suprised! It has a taste of spice in the mix; adding to itís overall semi-bitter quality. However, it wasnít too bitter-this well balanced beer makes living in Chicago worth it!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Has a very deep amber color and a thin, quickly dissipating head. Has an aroma of sweet bread.. or biscuits?? The aroma was faintly similar to that of a pilsner. Also smells of some indistinct fruits. Taste is crisp, sweet, and spicy. Hops are noticeable in the finish.

Bottle at a hotel room, London. Dark golden with off white head. Aroma is biscuit, perfume, nuts, floral, and some yeast. Taste is similar, biscuit, toffee, toast, nuts, earth and spice. Very well balanced and pleasant to drink

The aroma has caramel flavors and some esters with low hop aroma. The appearance is copper with a small white head and not much retention. It is a clear beer. The flavor is toast and caramel and very balanced with a somewhat dry finish. Some bitterness shows through at the end. The mouth feel is medium to medium light with moderate carbonation. Overall it is easy drinking and balanced beer with moderate carbonation. I would like to see a minor increase in hop for a slightly more hop forward bitterness.

Beautiful deep amber pour (almost expecting a Jurassic Park mosquito inside). Great thick beige head. Aroma faint of caramel and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced with fruity/spicy hops and smooth caramel malts. Perfect bittersweet smooth drinkability for a rich session ale at 4.3 ABV.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Nice color. Malty and biscuit notes in the smell that carry over to the taste as well. Enjoyable beer.
