Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light beige head.. Sweet and light caramelly aroma. Flavour is sweet and a bit boring. Watery and thin. Has not much to offer in the end. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006

Cloudy amber coloured with a white head.
Sweet aroma of fruits, spices and hops.
Flavour of fruits, spices and hops.
Hoppy finish. ABUSEDGOAT (2760) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Hazy amber body with a moderate to large head. Aroma is very fruity, lotsa light stuff in here. From peaches to oranges. Also notes of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, and some grass. While I thought the aroma was quite promising, this has a very mass produced taste to it. Light acidity and easy to drink, but didn’t live up to my expectations after the aroma. OK I guess. It’s a shame there were a zillion 6 packs of this and thier new Impy Stout was sold out. This beer definitely has the Southhampton Secret Ale thing going for it. ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Pineapple, spice and grapefruit aromas, some sweetness; well balanced, light bodied though flavorful; lightly bitter finish, fresh citrus and spiced hops; toasty and toffe leaning malt base. English bitter or APA, I don’t care, this is a very solid session brew. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2006
The epitome of an average beer. Pours an orange/amber color with a good white head. Aroma of citrus with some sweetness. Flavor is nicely balanced between the hops and the sweetness of the malts, although the malts win out a bit. Very drinkable, but not particularly impressive.

Honkers Ale pours to a deep orange color with a creamy white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose is impressive, waves of citric hop aromas marry with biscuit malt aromas. The palate has some nice caramel malt flavor, and some very nice juicy, fruity esters. The body is solid, but not heavy, making this a very drinkable ale that would not be too filling, if you chose to have a few pints. This beer finishes with a nice, citric hop bite that lingers, and lets you know you just had one hell of a good beer.
This beer is one of my all time favorites, a staple in my beer fridge. The brewpub on Clyborne is a must visit if you ever find yourself in Chicago. I go for beer and their wonderful bar chips when ever I’m in the Windy City. This beer would work well with a number of dishes. I would pair it with a nice burger with fries, or a NY Strip Steak and a baked potato. A perfect beer to relax with as well.
