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.

750 ml. Clear golden body has a steady stream of bubbles that support a thing disc of foam. Aroma of sweet dried grass, honey, toast and a touch of lemon zest. Tastes the same, with the earthy honey lingering the further I delve in to the glass. Near-medium bodied brew leans sweet and malty but manages to strike a decent balance. Tingly, medium-high carbonation isn’t my style but it never becomes explosive and definitely helps keep this one from getting sticky. Well-executed take on a kolsch, but just a bit less honey might have really made this one soar.

It’s lacking in a number of the Kolsch hallmarks I love. Particularly in texture where this reminds me much more of an English Golden ales. The nose is quite sterile. Flavor-wise, it’s got some good sweetness with a tiny touch of honey flavor in the finish. The hop character is quite green, or maybe that’s the grain either way it’s pretty weak. What year was used? Who can say.

Drank at The Tap Room’s 1st anniversary party -- This brew is crushable and delicious. I could/would drink many more of these. A well done brew.

Sample during Jungle Jim’s International Beerfest. End of the bottle. Hazy yellow color. Thin bubble white head. Decent ridge of lace. Bread, honey, crackers. Bigger floral character. Moderate-plus sweet taste. Light bitter. Light dry finish. Lighter to medium body. Lighter carbonation. Mild slick, then kinda dry in the finish. Reasonably smooth. An alright kolsch. Smooth, nice flavor. Very mild bite in the finish, though. Hint of stomach acid to it.

I've had this a month or so ago and there was no flavour. I'm calling foul on that bottle - and praising this one, honeys and delicate malts. Fantastic. I wasn't expecting such a turn around, but I'm glad I've gone again. Thanks Rogue, I'm still a believer.

Clear golden pour faint ring of white head. More honey on the nose than the flavor, which is surprisingly drier and more grassy bitter than expected. noble hop finish. Decent, but I wouldn’t really care to have one again. The sam adams honey queen was better.
