ehh. thats the review and the sentiment. not much to write here. its true that its well balanced and a good introduction to the apa which can kill newcomers with overt hoppiness but it just doesnt do much for me. User29624 (1683) - - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Pours a translucent amber with a thin white head. Mild aroma, with just a little bit of hops. The flavor is well balanced with just a little bit of hops and malt. It has a little bitterness to it. Goose Islandís basic brew, they have much better stuff. unclemike (3115) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy rich amber with a nice off-white head that would leave a fair amount of lacing. The aroma was a nicely balanced malt and hops sensation, if a bit underpowered. A good easy flavor just barely sweet upfront with a light bitter finish that lingers gently. It is smooth with a barely perceptible tingle in the mouth. Overall it is a nice balanced beer, easy to drink, dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Pours a nice amber with a thick white head. Smooth malt aroma with a touch of hops. Taste is malty with a nice splash of hops. Very tasty version of an english pale, but has a burst of west coast hops. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 Great Chicago classic. Nice amber color, white head. The aroma is sweet malt and hops. Taste is caramel well-balanced with some hops, delicious. My only gripe is I wish it had a little more carbonation. If your girlfriend drags you out to some bar, and they have Honkerís Ale, well, you canít go wrong.

On tap at Patton Ally Pub. Pretty solid English pub ale. I was expecting a little more hopiness to the beer, but it was dominated by the sweet malt flavor. Not a bad beer. colts9016 (198) - Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2008
A golden ambler color with a thin white head. The nose is hoppy, hints of yeast and malt. The taste is hoppy with a fresh balance of yeast and malt. The finish is clean and quick a very good ale from Goose Island illini4ever (23) - Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2008

on tap. Amber with a thin white head. Light hop aroma with sweet malts. Flavor is muldly hoppy with caramel malt and bread. Slightly bitter, easy drinking. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Bottle from mixer pack from West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago. Clear amber with medium off-white head, nice lacing Aroma is very fresh soft malt and spicy hops. Caramel flavor with slight pine and noble hops, very nice. Medium to full body and creamy. Very fresh tasting but not the most interesting beers in the world.
