COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy gold without much head. Aroma is light and sweet, as is the pallet. Taste is sweet but finishes slightly bitter with a tiny is aftertaste. Still pretty good.

mkel07 (3878) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle from Queens Plaza Beer & Wine December 2013. Nice take on a traditional kolsch with the honey giving it a touch of sweetness in the flavour and the finish.

weihenweizen (1943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Refrigerated bomber poured into a glass. Hazy golden with one-finger white head. Aroma is light herbal hops, medium body, slightly syrupy texture, medium carbonation, and pretty good big-bubble lacing. Taste is honey, pilsner malt, with light herbal hop finish. Best kolsch I have had, probably.

shrubber85 (8235) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Honey and barley malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt and straw flavor. Okay - kind of bland.

Nate (3800) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Clean nose, not much to it. Light sweet character but not much else. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts clean, a bit sweet. Some carbonic fizz, mild honey. Light hop character. Clean finish and after. More like a golden ale or blond than a kölsch.

Hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of cereal grain with a slight floral note. Smooth mouthfeel with medium body and bready malt flavor. Quite nice Kolsch.

pdx77 (1461) - Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2014
On draught at Rogue Public House & Distillery. Clear honey golden color. Aroma is lightly floral with sweet honey. Taste is grass, flowers, biscuit, and definite honey. Crisp, slightly bitter, with a great honey kick. A refreshing kölsch.

Salmoniform (1138) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with white head that dissipated. Aroma is straw, honey, sulphur, grassy, cereal. Mouthfeel is really refreshing with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a slight bitterness in the following and a slightly sulphur but clean finish. Overall, this is a nice brew.
