COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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,

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.

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 Honker’s Ale, well, you can’t 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.

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

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.

This a a decent ESB. It has a pleasant aroma and a dcent hop bite to it. It pours brown and doesnt have an overpwering aroma, but it is there nonetheless.

An average ESB for the common man. You can find this at O’Hare at Chili’s, FOX Sports bar/grill. A better alternative than the BMC options. Nothing great, but decent.
