A very approachable Bitter, glad to see Honkers now available locally - love the combination and balance of light hoppy flavors mixed with near amber malts.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 19, 2017
Imported by Cerveceria Chile. Found on Henua Market, Easter Island. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is malty, with cereally and bready notes, hints of cardboard and some shiny fruity hints. Im getting a nose of mostly red apple, orange, papaya, loads of cereals and grains and a bit of caramel. Yes, I get the English Bitter nuances. Taste is moderately bitter, fresh and crisp with fruity flavors providing nice balance. Moderate sweetness. Not packed with flavors, this is clearly a light-hearted ale meant to be a sessionable drink. I could have lots of these, but so could I have lots of Session IPAs or hoppy Pilsners. And Honkers Ale would not end up being favored in a comparison. Not bad but forgettable.

Belated check in. Simple beer. No complexity and nothing remarkable. Might be good on a hot day. But so is ice water. Didn't finish.

HighandLow (8) - Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2017 does not count
Not a bad beer by any means. Its pretty good. But its probably my least favorite Goose Island beer, and Goose Island is my favorite brewery by far. It just really lacks that uniqueneas and multiple layers of flavora and palate that goose island always has.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle @ Fiddlers. Unbelieveable I havent tried this beer before. Pours a clear darker golden beer wtih a nice, fluffy white head on top. Aroma is malty and grassy, bit of everthing in there, nice subtle mix of medium hoppyness and some malty softness. Flavor is basically the same, fairly sweet and easy going, medium high in carbonation and has great drinkability. Session beer for sure, interesting not so much.

AlfredoGarcia (281) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 1, 2017
355 ml bottle. Got it at work, though widely available in Santiago. Good smell, yeasty, creamy. Amber color with dense foam. Hoppy taste with creamyness and good ending, a little bit to soft for me, but still decent.

dj (616) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle, 355ml. Copper colour with a small white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma has plenty of malt, clove and sweetness. Flavour has biscuit, a little sourness, some spicy hop. Disappointing thin body and a bitter but watery finish Carbonation a little too high. Better than average but nothing special.

DavyK (68) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Great example of an American amber. They say English bitter but its a malty-amber hit that segues into a crisp, hoppy finish that I think defines it.

onceblind (9155) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2017
Clear amberish copper with a thick rocky ivory head. Bright English malty nose thats a touch bready with quiet grassy slightly pear-like hop tones. Crisp English bready malt flavors dominate the palate with a crisp semidry body and super gentle toffee with a very light citrus floral hop grassiness. Very quiet hops but not so malty that it goes into the dark or doppel category. Just a brisk malty English Ale.
