Details

This English Bitter by way of Chicago is Goose Island's tip-of-the-hat to this classic beer style. A crystal clear amber with some effervescent bubbles, the Honkers Ale's first impression is that of mild English hops aromas, sweet malts and an earthy yeastiness. Perfectly balanced, the floral and spicy hop notes wrap a big bow around the sweet caramel and biscuity malts. Lingering earthy hops are complemented by a decent carbonation. With a creamy body and a moderately dry finish, this beer is still complex enough to be interesting yet is fantastically sessionable.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.
