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.

swanmann (686) - 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 (957) - 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 (74) - 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 (1145) - 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 (442) - 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 (927) - Royal Oak, 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.

5000 (6599) - 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 (122) - 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
