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 nice hazy amber, fine malty flavor with a soft finish. Does taste more British than APA.

Goose Island’s mainstay. Ubiquitous in the Chicago area, but perhaps a tougher find elsewhere.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
12oz bottle. Deep amber pour. Not much aroma - some malt, and maybe some earthy hops. Nice malty flavor, and more of the hops. Unappropriately bitter bite on the last bottle I sampled.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
12 oz. Bottle: Transparent Golden with a short lived, but decent sized white head. Aromas are very airy, with some light hops mixed in, also get hints of grains and bread. Flavor is nothign spectacular, grains, slight corn, mellow hops. Finishes short and watery, typical to what I would expect. Like most of their other beers, this would make a nice session beer.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Little hop aroma, thin malt middle. Some nice summertime notes of wheat, orange and earth but limited at most. Light ale at best.

MrBunn (2826) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Pours a nice deep amber with foamy off-white head that laces nicely as it dissipates. Aroma is a bit weak... hops come through. Malt quickly gives way to pleasant hopping in taste. Slightly bitter due to hops that also picks up some citrus flavors with maybe a hint of pine, but palate does not develop fully. Nice light ale for summer.

Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Red with a small white head. Weak aroma of malt and hops. Flavor is fairly hoppy and bitter.

dp (608) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2005
first poured into imperial pint as bottle instructs, orange color, warmed quickly, citrusy, hoppy, decent brew.

Ernest (7697) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Bottle, Chicago airport. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather uninspiring pale ale.

thegreenrooster (4406) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Pour is a nice orange color with no head. Aroma is of citrus hops. Flavor is a bit weak but you get the hops and malts in there. A fine pale ale but still lacking somthing. Overall very ok.
