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.

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.

On draught at Rogue Public House & Distillery. Clear honey golden color. Aroma is lightly floral with sweet honey. Taste is grass, flowers, biscuit, and definite honey. Crisp, slightly bitter, with a great honey kick. A refreshing kölsch.

Salmoniform (536) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with white head that dissipated. Aroma is straw, honey, sulphur, grassy, cereal. Mouthfeel is really refreshing with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a slight bitterness in the following and a slightly sulphur but clean finish. Overall, this is a nice brew.

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 (4895) - 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.

Andrus86 (19) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2014
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

nick76 (4211) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2014
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.

BiereLuc (882) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Blonde pâle, trouble, peu mousseuse. Un prévisible nez de miel annonce les couleurs de la bičre. En bouche, des céréales fraîches sont surplombées par une belle acidité qui s’adoucit avec le miel qui est TRČS présent. C’est frais, c’est bon, ça se boit ŕ grosses lampées sans aucune espčce de retenue.
