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.

Zesty lemon aroma. Light golden color with a short lived white champagne head. Lightly tart lemon with a kinda thick consistency where the honey should be but is lacking. Good but I really wish it was better with more honey.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 8, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Clear pee yellow color with small head. Aroma is indeed honey and light pilsner/pale malts. Flavor is identical to the nose. Grainy texture. Light body with a sweet honey finish. Real simple and drinkable. Decent session type brew.

bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Capped 750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma suggests some sort of dilute aftershave. Fruit? Med body or nearly. Flavor starts sort of sweet, but then a lot of grassy hop stops that. Followed by some breadiness. Seem to be getting honey on my lips. Quite surprisingly drinkable. Honey from hops. What fortunate bees.

750 ml. bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Malty aromas with honey, grass and yeast. Smooth round flavors, medium carbonation and slightly bitter finish.

Pours a soft straw blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is soft bready malts with a light sweetness and grassy hop notes. Clean flavor with a light malt sweetness and crisp grassy hop character. Mild and clean with a touch of bitterness and some soft fruity notes. Very easy drinking.

This is a light and crisp beer. It’s dry and refreshing, but I was hoping for more of a honey taste which wasn’t as evident as the bottle suggests. A bit sweeter than a normal kolsch though.

Koskela (270) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Smells like a sweet kolsch. Slightly hazy pale blonde color amd a white head. Tastes like a kolsch but sweeter. Its a light medium body. Like what a kolsch should be. Try it

REally wanted to like this one especially at the price tag. Really like this style but this one is dry and buttery.

Bottle poured into flutes. Pours a light golden straw in color with a pure white head. It has a light aroma with flavor notes of fruit, honey and a touch of spice. It is a light and crisp beer, very refreshing.
