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.

Into a stange, this was a pretty good looking somewhat trying to be a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a slight one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The smell had a fairly good enticing honey aroma just trying to get me to want more. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there as much as it wanted to be almost perfect but wasn’t. Overall, for the most part, this was good for the style and good to me.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Sampled on draft at Dad’s Pub this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a large foamy off white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was honey, basic lager, a bit tangy and a touch of sour mash. The flavor was tangy sour mash bread dough and a bit of honey. Short finish. Light to medium body. Not good.

BOTTLE. Pours a nice see through gold with little head, didn’t get much off the nose, typical Kolsch. A sweetish taste to start with a lovely dash of honey at the back end, maybe a tad light/watery but still good to drink on a summers day! Sourced Cellarbrations Capel

The aroma is light but has yeast, malt, and a hint of honey. The appearance is golden with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a nice malty finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a real winner.

Blonde pâle, trouble, peu mousseuse. Un prévisible nez de miel annonce les couleurs de la bière. En bouche, des céréales fraîches sont surplombées par une belle acidité qui s’adoucit avec le miel qui est TRÈS présent. C’est frais, c’est bon, ça se boit à grosses lampées sans aucune espèce de retenue.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted at Greg’s honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing! It poured a slightly hazy yellow colour with long lasting white foam. We did a side-by-side comparison with Schlafly Kolsch, a great true-to-style example. If it hadn’t been for the Schlafly comparison, I would’ve said this is a perfectly true-to-style Kolsch, but it does in fact have subtle added honey-like traits: a little more flowery aroma, mellow residual sweetness, herbal mouthfeel. It lacks the peppery noble hop presence, but then, that might’ve over-powered the honey complexity. Well done. Delicious, I will definitely buy more of this.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear straw gold. Fizzy body. White foam up top. Floral, grassy hops. Buttered shortbread. Celery stalks. Lemon seeds. Thyme. Caramel corn. Agave. Honeycomb. Fresh grains. An otherwise medium Kolsch with a shiny citrus finish.

Sweet. Hazy. Whitish yellow. Really light body. Decent session brew. Clever use of honey from hop plants.
