"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." —brewer
"Appearance: Bright pale copper colour with a thin head, delicious-looking off-white lace.

"Smell: Slight malty aroma with hints of caramel and toasted husk, touch of woody hop in there also.

"Taste: Moderately bodied with a smooth mouthfeel that gets joggled from the dryness. Soft toasted malt flavours surround the taste buds, touch of caramel within the short-lived sweetness. Hops give an even woody and citric twang and give the brew a near-perfect balance. Big drying finish with toasted grain and a fermented malt twang comes to the tongue in a clean way.

"Notes: American session beer? I think so, pretty damn good if I do say so myself. Light enough to go down easy but right the right amount of flavour to be able to hold up against bar snacks and the like." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
