Light nose. Some floral notes, but not strong. Appearance was gold, bubbly. Very smooth drinking. Nice sweetness with some honey flavor late but not overly sweet. Was excellent match with my chicken curry Dinner. Refreshing. Rogue once again pleases.

Bomber in Santa Barbara Whole Foods. This is about as you can get from a Kolsch. Clean, crisp, refreshing. The honey is not overpowering but the touch of sweetness from the honey is a definite "value add." Well played, gentlemen.

Smells good. Zesty and sweet. Tastes light with the hint of honey easy to detect. Smooth, not overpowering or underwhelming. Good beer for a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from The Hop - Beacon, 9/22/13
Aroma: The nose is mild and a little sweet, honey is there, but light, mild lemon and yeasty notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a quick dissipating, bubbly, white head and mild lace
Flavor: The taste is light up-front, some sweetness and maltiness comes through mid-end palate
Palate: The body is light, feels a bit thin and overly carbonated, but not a terrible feel, short duration
I saw this big ole’ bright yellow bomber and figured I might as well try this one. Unfortunately, this beer is not all that exciting. It feels a little dull and forgettable. I was really pulling through my nose to get much of anything out of the aroma. There’s nothing offensive here, it’s just a dull one. Too bad, I was looking for a little more. Honestly, I wonder if this bottle is just past its prime or if this beer just lacks flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Zesty lemon aroma. Light golden color with a short lived white champagne head. Lightly tart lemon with a kinda thick consistency where the honey should be but is lacking. Good but I really wish it was better with more honey.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. Clear pee yellow color with small head. Aroma is indeed honey and light pilsner/pale malts. Flavor is identical to the nose. Grainy texture. Light body with a sweet honey finish. Real simple and drinkable. Decent session type brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma suggests some sort of dilute aftershave. Fruit? Med body or nearly. Flavor starts sort of sweet, but then a lot of grassy hop stops that. Followed by some breadiness. Seem to be getting honey on my lips. Quite surprisingly drinkable. Honey from hops. What fortunate bees.

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.
