Situated just across from 40 acres of Rogue hops, 119 colonies of bees were carefully kept and fed and the honey was uncapped, extracted, filtered, and finally infused into a refreshing Honey Kolsch ale.

Pours a soft straw blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is soft bready malts with a light sweetness and grassy hop notes. Clean flavor with a light malt sweetness and crisp grassy hop character. Mild and clean with a touch of bitterness and some soft fruity notes. Very easy drinking.

This is a light and crisp beer. It’s dry and refreshing, but I was hoping for more of a honey taste which wasn’t as evident as the bottle suggests. A bit sweeter than a normal kolsch though.

Koskela (469) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Smells like a sweet kolsch. Slightly hazy pale blonde color amd a white head. Tastes like a kolsch but sweeter. Its a light medium body. Like what a kolsch should be. Try it

REally wanted to like this one especially at the price tag. Really like this style but this one is dry and buttery.

Bottle poured into flutes. Pours a light golden straw in color with a pure white head. It has a light aroma with flavor notes of fruit, honey and a touch of spice. It is a light and crisp beer, very refreshing.

Cybercat (4638) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a nice clear solar yellow with a fluffy eggshell head. Malty, yeasty aroma has a touch of honey to it. Malty flavor definitely brings out the honey, though it is more yeasty, and has a touch of hops. Texture is quite fizzy, leaving a malty finish that has A Taste of Honey. Bee-lieve it, this beer deserves some good buzz.

JDBaker11058 (1739) - Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Appearance: clear bright yellow with a quickly vanishing bright white head; minimal lacing. Aroma: pretty floral, with undertones of grapefruit, honey (duh) and cereal. Taste: slightly sweet, flowery, with a little citrus giving way to a bit of toasted white bread. Finish: slightly slick/watery on the back end, but with a lingering cracker note and slightly bitter floral hops. Notes: Doesn’t finish quite as dry as a traditional kolsch, nor is the palate as light and effervescent. Nevertheless, the flavors were pretty good. Enjoyable, but not awesome.

scooterbub (958) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 14, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a two inch white head. Taste is of honey, grass, malt, hops, wheat and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a decent body that finishes mostly clean. Refreshing and easy to drink, but nothing special.

superspak (4236) - Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2013
750 ml bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast notes; with good strength. Spot on aromas. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, floral, grass, honey, pepper, toast, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, bread, cracker, toast, floral, grass, pepper, honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent kolsch style. All around great balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours golden. Very tasty with just a hint of honey. Very nice for a hot summer day.
