Draft. Pours amber in color with white head. Has a malty begining and a nicely balanced but hoppy finish. gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2008
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 (1687) - - 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 Island’s basic brew, they have much better stuff. unclemike (3195) - Junction City Kansas, 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 (3088) - 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.

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. cb23 (97) - St. louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2008
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
