The Elusive English Bitter

I picked up a 12 pack of Goose Island Honker's Ale.  Honker's is Goose Island's version of an English ESB (Bitter).  I'll let you know when I try it.

Right now I'm working my way through bottles Bass Pale Ale that are in the refrigerator. I need the space.

One of the biggest reasons I started home brewing beer was to get a decent English style bitter.  Nothing fancy, just drinkable.  Besides Bass and now maybe Goose Island Honker Ale there is not much of a selection in bitter around here (and sometimes Bass is hard to find.)

Speaking of Goose Island try their Harvest Ale, it is a seasonal, and quite good.
