Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Amber color with a little head that lasts several minutes. Not much aroma. Nice flavor. Mildly hoppy with a little malt. Slightly bitter aftertaste; just a hint of metal. Very good.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Cloudy orange color. Small to medium head that leaves just a bit of lace. Aroma was wheat like-cloves, bitter perfume. Taste was bitter to start, with sweet finish. Medium body. Balanced aftertaste.

(Tap) Pours amber with a good-sized beige head. Aroma of floral hops, and some smooth malts. A nice hoppy, yet balanced flavor with a medium mouthfeel. This is good all-around beer.

12 oz. bottle left wrapped up next to my truck by one of my co-workers today. According to the date on the bottle, this bad boy is a little over a year old. Gonna give it a shot anyways. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Very light lacing. Has a nice fruity aroma. Flavor is light toasted malt and esters. Light to medium body. Not bad for a beer that is a year past its prime. Gonna have to find out who left me the beers at work.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Slightly floral hoppy aroma. Flavor is kind of subdued hops up front with a decent malt backbone, but nothing really jumps out. Slightly dry and also metallic finish. Seems like their flagship beer is a bit dulled down in order to suit the masses, but this would be an excellent session beer.

2.9
kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Secret Santa 2006. Pours a clear dark gold colored body under a small fizzy white head that fell to a whispy film. Aroma is fairly light, a little floral hoppiness over a lightly toasted and bready malt base. Flavor is moderately hoppy with a light bitterness on the finish. The malt is bready and light. Mouthfeel is light bodied, watery in texture, with a decent amount of prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland and pedestrian offering from Goose Island. Alot like 100 other Pale Ales I’ve had before.

3.1
DJC (238) - USA - DEC 7, 2006
Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.

polarbeer678 (9) - palos heights, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2006 does not count
smooth crisp, distinct in a good way, honker’s ale is a chicago classic. Makes beers like miller light seem like tiolet watter. Not the best beer i ever had, but a danm good one

3.2
Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 2, 2006
12 oz bottle at Kyle’s "This Is Not A Beer Tasting" beer tasting. Clear amber with no head. Sweet malty caramel nose with a mild spicy hop influence. Flavor follows suit.
