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.

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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle:   Bright yellow but still hazy, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Dull yet strong honey on the nose.   Otherwise a bit of sweet grass/straw/hay.   Very similar on the tongue, smooth, a bit heavier than others.   Not as crisp as most, but guessing with the Honey it wouldn’t be that way.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Soft sweet bready finish, with dull honey notes.   Tiz okay, could stand to be more grass like instead of bready.

TourDeBeer (116) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2014
A - faint honey, wheat. A- slight murk, white head which faded quickly. First taste - refreshing, medium sweetness, low carbonation and a quick edge of dryness. Overall - pretty nice, defiantly destined to be a hit this summer. Throw away your corona's triple x wannabees #honeypun -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

In all, a very enjoyable kolsch. Although I would like to get a little more of the honey character, it adds a very nice element to this brew. The graininess is excellent; it’s highly evident in both the taste and aroma. Rogue has expertly captured the style with the light body and refreshing feel. Easy to drink and enjoy.
