"not bad. wasn’t expecting much, but this is quite refreshing. the honey is a nice touch, and of course Rogue won’t make a beer without a generous amount of hops. nice."

Piss yellow pour and a lot more of a bitter flavor than you’d expect from the style. That’s not necessarily a deterrent for me since I despise cream ales in general, but this one still didn’t quite work out for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
this beer pours a bright golden colour with a subtley sweet honey aroma. it’s faint, but becomes more noticeable in the taste. a little malty mid palate, finishes with soft hop character.

I really liked this. It started out sweet, and creamy, and had a very pleasant taste. It has a nice clean, bitter finish. I am surprised this beer hasn’t done better.

This beer has such a great name, but the beer itself doesnt live up to the name. Bitter, not honey dominates. Reminds me a bit of the santas private reserve. not so great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (22oz). Slightly hazy light amber with a 2cm white foamy-frothy head. Dry, papery caramel malt aroma with a hint of herbal/resin bitterness, honey-clover sweetness as it warms. Grassy-honey aroma- quite sweet, but bitter in the tail, smooth, light, vaguely creamy and surprisingly drinkable. Only just okay, but better than I expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow with a fine white head. Smells of honey, pine resin, some sweet malt. Tastes of citrus, pine resin, pepper, touches of honey. Finish is bitter. This is a far cry from what I’ve come to expect out of a cream ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wasn’t sure what to expect from this beer, which is labeled as a cream ale made with honey. It poured a big, dense, and long-lasting head, and aroma’s typical of a cream ale. Lots of hops on the palate which dominates hints of honey. Hop bitterness dominates the finish. Not as sweet as many honey beers if that’s what you’re hoping to find.
