drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - SEP 14, 2016
5%ABV. Kolsch. Poured out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is beery. Mouthfeel is light, watery and beery. Palate has some good solid pale malt flavor with dough, raw dough, flour and some cracked barley. Slight sweetness, not too sure if this meant to be the honey. Just enough hops at the end to leave a very clean palate feeling. Finish is clean. Overall, very pleasant and clean. I’d give it a big thumbs up though not quite list material.

lello4ever (675) - ITALY - SEP 10, 2016
Bionda velata, molto spinta sul dolce Grazie al miele. Malto e caramello davvero in evidenza ma godibile. Carbonazione non elevata.

Rogue brewing has made a good German style Kolsch beer. Smooth easy drinking good malty flavor slightly sweet would recommend.

nealblind (1679) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 10, 2016
some head white foam. Aroma ozone, grassy german hops, honey. Tastes bready, very mild grassy hops, dry honey. A bit too much body. I appreciate the inventiveness, but seems to go against the light nature of the kolsch.

polo_marco (318) - milton, Vermont, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Smells of sweet malts and rich deep honey. Nice see through golden color with no head. Nice sweet smooth malty taste followed by sweet smooth rich honey that coats the tougue perfectly. Light body with sweet crisp carbonation. Love the real thick honey flavor. Could be a great beer to bake with and drink of course. Nice work!

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of honey, bread, and floral notes. Light hazy gold straw color, thin head. Light honey, grain, some citrus peel, and moderate bittering. Fairly sweet, but it hits a good spot with the mild bittering.

Pretty good
