harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2006
65cl bottle from Utobeer. Not sure what I expected this to be. Golden with thin off beige head. Distinctive Rogue hop aroma. Citric. Bit more toffee whisky on aroma. OK in mouth. Nice toffee/hop finish. Sweetish in mouth, Still attack of hops on end. Fine, but after the hop and toffee it doesn’t go anywhere

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle: This actually has a honey-gold color, but little aroma. It is smooth to drink and has a nice sweet and crisp essence, but I don’t think in a blind taste test I would’ve come up with honey. Pretty good, but one of the more disappointing offerings from Rogue.

This beer was a bit of a disappointment. No honey or cream taste whatsoever. I was hoping for a rather unique flavor, but that didn’t happen! Tasted like a cheap beer.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle- Hazy yellow pour with a fizzy and large white head. Aroma is mostly hops and grass. No honey that I can detect. Bitter hops flavour, again no honey. Dry as all get out, and not too bad, just lacks complexity, and is very, very one dimensional. Add actual creaminess, and some honey, and you’d have a 3.5 average rating at least.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2006 I disagree with the "retired" label applied to this because of the quantity I have just experienced. Just had this in the Franklin, TN Mellow Mushroom. 22oz bomber. Hazy color, great flavor. Definately some nut, mostly hazy. I enjoyed it very much. Definately some hop bitterness in the finish. I’ll be going back soon to have another!

pours a light orange cloudy color. With a whitish head. A little honey smell and tast. overall fair

This has Officially become my A #1 BEST BREAKFAST BEER!! Nothing beats a chilled Rogue Honey Cream for breakfast. Abandon the bacon and eggs; have some double deuces of the honey cream instead. It does a body good. The Rogue Honey Cream is the color of clover honey and with an aroma to match; this beer is remarkably easy to drink. The subtle honey flavor is slightly reminiscent of Bärenjäger, without being too overbearingly sugary sweet or potent. The swill of this beer is fantastic! Easy enough to ignore, complex enough to scrutinize and best of all fit for mass consumption! The label could use some help. Forget Wheaties. The Rogue Honey Cream ale is the True Breakfast of Champions!

Bottle. Cloudy orange colour with an off-white head. Weak sweet aroma of hops and honey. Sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel and honey. Thin mouthfeel with hints of honey.
