A very approachable Bitter, glad to see Honker’s now available locally - love the combination and balance of light hoppy flavors mixed with near amber malts. wjh7v4 (3) - USA - SEP 14, 2013 does not count
Delightfully malty. Very well-balanced. Not especially hoppy, but still pleasantly bitter. felipeoms (1) - - MAR 24, 2016 does not count

Got a 6 pack of this for my Birthday last year. My friend from Indiana said this was her favorite regional beer, now I see why. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Amber with good, foamy beige head / Light to medium body with good balance and finish / Flavors of toasted malt, orange peel, lemon, and candied caramel flavors / A fine example of the style. billlmiky (20) - , New York, USA - JAN 28, 2009
on tap. a little bit of hops a little bit of toastiness. this is definitely pretty high on my list. pchiodo (27) - Barrie, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Heavy malt, caramel, moderate hoppiness of flowers, earth, wind, and fire. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. This is one of my favourite Pale Ales.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a brief description and a "bottled on" date but no ABV%.
Appearance: On top of a nice orange amber body sits a good two finger tall eggshell colored foam head. The head hangs on well and makes cool lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: The aroma has a nice sweet maltiness with caramel and a good balance of citrus hops.
Taste/Palate: Up first there is a simple bready maltiness with some mild caramel like sweetness and light toasted grain with faint hints of fruitiness. This is balanced by pleasant citrus and leafy hop bitterness. The medium body has a smooth feel and drinks easily.
Notes: This is just a strait up tasty ale with great drinkability
