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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours bright gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet honey aromas. Sweet caramel upfront to back lasting bitter finish.

Light nose. Some floral notes, but not strong. Appearance was gold, bubbly. Very smooth drinking. Nice sweetness with some honey flavor late but not overly sweet. Was excellent match with my chicken curry Dinner. Refreshing. Rogue once again pleases.

Bomber in Santa Barbara Whole Foods. This is about as you can get from a Kolsch. Clean, crisp, refreshing. The honey is not overpowering but the touch of sweetness from the honey is a definite "value add." Well played, gentlemen.

Smells good. Zesty and sweet. Tastes light with the hint of honey easy to detect. Smooth, not overpowering or underwhelming. Good beer for a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from The Hop - Beacon, 9/22/13
Aroma: The nose is mild and a little sweet, honey is there, but light, mild lemon and yeasty notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a quick dissipating, bubbly, white head and mild lace
Flavor: The taste is light up-front, some sweetness and maltiness comes through mid-end palate
Palate: The body is light, feels a bit thin and overly carbonated, but not a terrible feel, short duration
I saw this big ole’ bright yellow bomber and figured I might as well try this one. Unfortunately, this beer is not all that exciting. It feels a little dull and forgettable. I was really pulling through my nose to get much of anything out of the aroma. There’s nothing offensive here, it’s just a dull one. Too bad, I was looking for a little more. Honestly, I wonder if this bottle is just past its prime or if this beer just lacks flavor.
