Gespuccian (141) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours copper brown with white head. Nose is malt, some slightly floral hops. Taste has a smooth whole wheat bread flavor, with definite bitterness from the hops. Moderate carbonation, nice mouth feel. Bitterness isn't overpowering. Nice blend of flavor here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De Cerveceria Goose Island(E.U.A) ahora propiedad de la macro cervecera AB in Bev(BEL), esta "Honkers Ale" una Strong Bitter de 4.3% ABV, buen contenido alcohlico para este estilo que tiene bastante tradicin en Inglaterra, su produccin se remonta a las cervezas de fermentacin Ale en Brewpubs derivadas de las English Pale Ale pero servidas directo de barril con un balance bastante similar, las Strong Bitter son la versin Premium de las Ordinary y las Best Bitter, en las cuales supuestamente se utilazaban los elementos mas finos y una posible mayor graduacin alcohlica, en Estados Unidos estas son tambien muy conocidas como "ESB" por la etiqueta de la emblemtica cervecera inglesa Fullers. Esta Bitter posee una corona de espuma mediana de perlas cristalinas, retencin media y una carbonatacin baja, en el color se aprecia un tono ambarino claro con destellos color dorado, cerveza filtrada ya que ofrece una transparencia no muy comn para una cerveza fermentada con levadura Ale, de cuerpo bastante ligero. Ya las notas en nariz que tiende a desarrollar son florales por lpulos europeos sin embargo no se sobreponen a las de las maltas que estn ah como soporte principal dando aromas a bizcocho, algo de caramelo y carcter tostado merodeando los dems olores igual que una muy voltil frutosidad. Tiene en boca un amargor consistente y seco, de aspecto herbal con mnima resinosidad pero tambien es notable el sabor de la malta a bizcocho y costra de pan que dan la impresin de ligera tostadez, dulzor bajo con algo de caramelo, algo dbil y mucho mas sesionable en sabor para una Strong Bitter pero cumple siendo bastante agradable y dndonos una muestra de los tradicionales estilos ingleses, una cerveza que podra servir para los recin iniciados en la prueba de cervezas con mas carcter que las comunes Adjunt Lager de la miscelnea.

Leighton (20797) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Keg at the Drury Hotel - St. Louis. Pours clear gold with a creamy topping. The nose has bready malts, mild ripening citrus. Light-medium sweet flavour with some leafy hops, mild piney bitterness, lightly toasted bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and bready on the finish, with faint metallic bite, some grain, hints of honey, caramel. So so overall.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
341 ml bottle from Co-Op Liquor Store, served in my Molson Light pilsner glass. Pours a light cola shade, with plenty of even, slow fine carbonation from all over the glass bottom, and a short collar of off-white head that holds firm and leaves fine lace rings. In other words, it looks fantastic. Nose is clean, moderately sweet malt with caramel, touched with spice and nuts, and redolent with fresh tree fruit and red berries; on the tongue, its almost all lightly sweet, smooth, doughy malts with a speck of earthiness. Thin-bodied, slightly prickly carbonation, and with a brief, clean, dry finish. Goose Island truly does justice to the ESB profile with Honkers. Altogether delicious and eminently drinkable.

Bottle from Hakim - Color: clear amber beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: caramel malt notes. Toasted malt. Sweet caramel finish. Grassy hops. Taste: medium body with caramel malt balanced with grassy hops and high bitterness. Dry sensation. Caramel finish. Aftertaste: caramel and astringent bitterness. Its definitely a bitter, but I dont know why I didnt enjoy it...

Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)
February 22, 2016
Brewed in Canada by the Labatt Brewing Company (a subsidiary of Anheusaer-Busch-InBev)
The beer pours a translucent light copper colour with a generous foamy light tan coloured head. The aroma is biscuity malt, weak caramel, weak citrus, and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is a mish-mash of caramel up front and citrus in the finish. Easy drinking, but nothing remarkable.

Tap at Madison Avenue Pub in Toronto. What horrible hop extracty crap. Few sips of this was enough. Far cry from even the most random pub Bitters of England.
