Goose Island Honker’s Ale – like British ale but better!

Just back from the pub where I enjoyed a lovely pint of Goose Island Honker’s ale. It’s like a British cask-conditioned ale, but a bit better (I say this at risk of causing some controversy), combining hoppy flavours with some sweet maltiness, and a bit of spicy meaty character. Not too fizzy and really complex. Lovely definition.

It’s from Chicago. I find the US speciality ‘microbrew’ beers often have lovely intense, complex flavours. I’m impressed by this.

    I was just drinking Honkers last night while listening to some blues at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago. Great beer, great music!
