Goose Island Honker's Ale

This English Bitter was smooth and fairly lightly flavored bordering on watery.  The good news is that that flavor present is pleasant.  It's primarily a nice caramel or bisquity malt, simple but nice.  The hops are rather non-descript but balancing.  I don't think it's particularly 'English', so this 'English' Bitter is highly Americanized.  In fact, I'd almost say it is what I would imagine Anheuser-Busch would make for their version of an 'English' Bitter.  That being said, it was pleasant, didn't have any off flavors, was smooth with high drinkability.  So, my only real complaint is that it was too subtle to the point I'd call it watery.
