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.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a golden yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma is crisp malts and lager cleanliness. Taste follows, more honey malt and less of the actual honey. Not bad.

So, I thought this was light, and would have been more refreshing except for a slightly bitter middle taste. Didn’t get a sense of honey, but then this is kind of nicely sweet and pleasant a drink. Earthy aroma, pale yellow pour, it;s not a bad drink for a slower sunday recovery.

swanmann (604) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bright, slightly hazy golden yellow with small, diminishing white head that does not leave lace. It smells wonderful, with honey, honeysuckle florals, and earthy, sort of dank barnyard aromas. The taste has a really nice, clean sweetness, balanced with some earthiness, a touch of hoppy zing, and biscuit flavors. It finishes sweet and bready.The carbonation is sufficient. And it holds up surprisingly well with some warming. It’s well-balanced, a successful combination of tastes.

aleksander9 (425) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2014
Hazy golden with copper tones and small white head. Aroma is honey, malt, caramel and some toasted notes. Round and fruity mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is honey, malt and lingering floral hop bitterness. Overall: well made. But, all the good stuff is to mellow to make this a stand out ale.

Thebullshornbar (73) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2014
A delicate twist to a classic style. Well balanced crisp and toasty notes, complemented with fruit flavors present in this alt-style beer pair beautifully with Rogue’s own home-grown hops and honey. The dry notes and almost European-like flavors from the hops combine really well to make a great American example of classic German beer style.

Gachupines (901) - USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is very light with some slight sweet notes from the honey. Flavor is light and crisp with a pleasant sweetness. Not cloying at all for a light beer that’s a little sweet. Just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Wife: 3.2

EyeAmBaldman (229) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Tons of carbonation. Lemon aroma. Tastes of lemon with a slight honey hint in the middle. A bit of hops worth a yeasty aftertaste. Not bad.

chucklemation (477) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Poured from a bottle a yellow hue with a foamy white head. I get lemon from the aroma, though I can’t quite tell if that’s it. Honey is very subtle in the flavor, with a honey consistency also coming off, to a slight extent, in the mouthfeel. Lemon again is the dominant flavor. The beer’s flavor is strongest in the middle, but somewhat weak at the beginning and end of he beer. There’s hardly any hops, and a touch of carbonation. Has a pleasant mouthfeel. Really, this is a pretty nice drinking beer that I wouldn’t mind having now and again.
