The first time I had this it was on tap and immediately as it was handed to me the look and smell was wonderful. Once I tasted it I was pleasantly surprised it is a light and fruity hops super clean.

This is one of my favorite beers. I love that I can get it any time of the year. It is very smooth and easy to drink. Anytime I want to spend a little more and get a 6-pack this is my go to beer. It is reasonably priced and delicious. I highly recommend this beer.

Appearance - A very nice amber with an orange hue that is clear but retains a strong color.

Smell - Complimentary notes of roasted malts and caramel with some hops (they reminded me of smokey wood, but only for a moment).

Taste & Mouthfeel - A unique balance of a sweet taste while the beer is in your mouth sandwiched by well-pronounced hops and finishes with a very savory dry note. The aroma that comes up while drinking adds a lot to the medium-body that completes it well.

Overall - I really enjoy this Goose Island, while it's not my go to, its definitely one that I'm always happy to see at a tap.

Serving type: on-tap

Definitely one of my top 5 favorite beers. Good flavor but not too heavy. I picked this up on a whim and always looking for it but it's hard to find locally.

Usually prefer the 312 but Honkers Ale hits the spot as a hidden gem when found on tap or in the store. Again, it feels lighter and less hoppy.

I tried this beer for the first time in NYC and it was great. I looked for it where I lived and unfortunately could not find it.

I like this beer. My friends really like it and got me hooked on it. I do wish it was easier to find to purchase.

Love this. It's good on occasion around a fire. Always a big hit with my friends. It hard to come by though

Review for: Goose Island Honker's Ale Beer, 12 fl oz, 6 pack more...
This is actually a great brand. Especially the seasonal beers. Had an amazing chocolate infused beer for Christmas a couple of years ago. So tasty and didn’t leave me too bloated (until I ended up drinking about 4 of them).

A standard ale. It is a great medium like beer that isn't too hoppy or bitter. Not my absolute favourite but I definitely have no problem drinking again and will in the future for sure.
