Beer Review – Goose Island Honker’s Ale

This review had been put aside for a while due to all sorts of things going on in the world. Now, it’s at the front of the line due to Monday’s unfortunate news. Without further ado, here’s Goose Island Honker’s Ale.

Let’s get one thing out of the way, I keep my English-style ale reviews short. This will be different. Goose Island makes a damn fine ale. It’s an American interpretation that comes the close as posible to the English standard as you will find.

This is what you want to share with someone when you want them to know what else the world offers, but want to start with something comfortable. Medium-copper hue, balanced bitterness, with a stronger than average nose that won’t offend. Damn fine.

Get this ale while Goose Island is still Goose Island.
