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.

Not a huge fan of this beer. It is somewhat malty, somewhat hoppy, somewhat not good for some reason. Its blend is ok, the complexity lacks, and the flavors are muddled. I didn’t find this refreshing but didn’t find it terrible either. There are much better from goose island

Bottle from missoula, York. Beautiful toasty amber colour and a healthy head. Aroma is orange and a bit of lychee, malts and hops. Taste is mild and crisp. A little too mich carb for me but Very drinkable none the less.

AgentAle (641) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Aroma is clove, light sweet malts and slight sulphur hints. Taste is a light sweet maltiness with some graininess and light caramel notes. There is a subtle bitterness that is quite well balanced and finishes very smoothly. Appearance is a copper /gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

MaltOne (214) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours light chestnut, brief white head. Faint malt aroma. Very light, approaching watery. Flavor is sweetish, light malt. A bit of fizz. Overall a good session beer. Pleasant but very light.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Somewhat disappointing bitter. Rather watery and low on flavors. Is this the same Honker’s as before the InBev acquisition?

AAEA (104) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 FL OZ ($4.00) had this at a local bar. not bad good but far from special. In my opinion when there are lots of better choices to be made.

Bendrixian (1098) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
On tap in Ajax. clear red amber like colour. light citrus aroma with a real zesty note that I find surprising but there is some malt cereal like notes in there as well. Medium bodied, lightly hopped and again sort of zesty on the palate. Easily forgetful.
