Goose Island Brewery, Chicago IL – Honker’s Ale 4.3%
The Brewery indicates that Honker’s Ale is inspired by visits to English country pubs.

This is a darker golden amber coloured ale, typical of an English bitter type. It has a strong hop flowers and malt aroma, with a sweeter taste with a slight underlying bitterness.

This is an excellent English ale type, which for an American brew surpasses many actual English bitters. Definitely scores a top 5 on the NBSS(CAMRA) and a beer I will be looking out for again.
