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.

Gachupines (1031) - 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

I've had this a month or so ago and there was no flavour. I'm calling foul on that bottle - and praising this one, honeys and delicate malts. Fantastic. I wasn't expecting such a turn around, but I'm glad I've gone again. Thanks Rogue, I'm still a believer.

Butters (3939) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Clear golden pour faint ring of white head. More honey on the nose than the flavor, which is surprisingly drier and more grassy bitter than expected. noble hop finish. Decent, but I wouldn’t really care to have one again. The sam adams honey queen was better.

750 ml bottle shared with a pal in banff. Cloudy yellow pour with Apple smell. No distinctive taste to me...maybe a little citrus? Smooth and easy drinking.

Lagerboy (1490) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Slightly hazed golden yellow, small white lasting head. Mild honey citrus aroma. Taste is lightly sweet honey, lean bready malt, lemony citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Tasty. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

monk191 (1222) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Wasn't expecting much, and this kolsch didn't raise them. Pours an ugly slightly cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells nice, bit of honey and citrus. Taste has honey upfront, but then turns watery, with a lemon seltzer or soda taste in the finish. Had in the bottle.

cstuartj (1017) - Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap. Honey Yellow gold with a small head and nice lacing. Sweet pleasant nose of hop, yeast and malts. Surprisingly light, crisp sweet taste that has a honeyish lingering finish. Pretty cool beer.

solidly in the "very good for the style" category. light and crisp with well done light honey in the nose and flavor, but other than that it would not be very interesting.
