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.

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Light haze in the golden beer. Light honey in the aroma with lemon and grain. The honey works. A nice beer.

HIGHB4LL (449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
750ml bottle. Aroma: light malt, with a somewhat straw scent, and a light hoppy citrus. Appearance: average sized head, fizzy with no real lacing. Sparkling cloudy yellow body. Taste: moderately acidic, vinegary. Palate: light, with alcoholic texture and lively carbonation. Finish is slightly metallic. Not bad, but not great.

750ml bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Golden with a two finger white head. Aroma is honey and lemon. Flavor is the same. Finishes with citrus tartness. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Anchored Inn, Brooklyn bottle ($11): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is light hops, a bit of honey, and some grass. Taste is slightly bitter, a tad bit sweet, but mostly just a crisp easy-drinking beer. Nothing is really too impressive, but certainly there is not a thing wrong with this either.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - NOV 18, 2013
pours a hazy straw yellow with a minimal white head. This beer is bitter and grainy, there are some very mild fruit and floral tastes.

Gerbeer (1689) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Aromas of honey and light citrus. Flavors are similar though a bit stronger with additional pilsner notes. Clean and refreshing.

Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is smooth and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light smooth malt, touch of cream. Very light honey and a whisper of somewhat insipid citrus. Light dry finish. Okay.

Honey is evident, but wish there were more. A very refreshing beer, if not super flavorful, with perfect level of carbonation (strong enough, but not overdone). Enough hops to retain my interest. If only the mass market lagers could fulfill their promise of "refreshing" by coming halfway to the drinkability of this beer. Hmm... what food do I want with this... I'd say anything you'd find in a good pub, minus the heavy or super spicy stuff. Gets better with each sip. As I said: very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from TWM Sterling - pours straw with some nice lacing. Dry with the balance of the sweetness of mead.
