Delightfully light, smooth, and creamy--everything promised. Sweet in taste and aroma. Also good for cooking.

I was actually pleasently surprised with this one. I thought it had a different taste than what I was used to but I did like it! I am certain to drink it again, malty beer with alcohol taste following.

This offering from Rogue pours a slightly cloudy, orangish-gold color with a small white head. The aroma is honeyish and malty. Medium bodied, the flavor is malty with hints of honey. The finish is crisp and slightly bitter from the hops. This is an outstanding cream ale, it sure has Genesee beat. I could drink a tanker full of this beer. Quite satisfying.

So far I have liked every Rouge beer placed before me, and that says a lot considering that there are many beer styles that I just don't persue normally. While they may not be the best examples of every beer style, Rouge's are always pleasent and distinctive. Honey Cream Ale reminds me very much of vanilla cream soda. Light and fizzy with a sweet taste, it goes down easily like soda pop. Sweet, but not thick and overbearing. A great beer to drink on a hot day. It's a good beer to introduce novices to the differnt flavors that can be imparted on craft beers. You can definietly taste the honey, but it's not so strong as to alientate anyone. Perfect execution in my not-even humble opinion. Very pale light blond color, but not pale in flavor. Goes well with salty traditional American foods like hotdogs, hamburgers, nachos, etc... A little to weak to stand up to more complex or flavorful foods like BBQ or cajun though. I pretty much avoid light blond beers, but this one so much reminds me of my favorite soda, vanilla cream, that this might become my regular summer cool-off beer.

Love that Rogue. Even a cream ale is great when they make it.

Nice golden color that sits on a white head. The smell is of honey and a mild hop. The flavor is very unique for a cream ale, but not too much honey flavor. This is a new favorite session beer.

One Tap. A wonderful, well-balanced softly-flavored Cream Ale. Dark-honey in color; very refreshing tasting. Sweet, but not too sweet. Only an essence of honey. Hint of maple and cigar as well. I think this is yet another terrific selection from the geniuses at Rogue!

What a drinkable beer. It actually looks like honey when its poured out. However, it is not sweet. There is an underlying sweetness on the finish that is in no way cloying. Light bitterness and some malt sweetness. This one goes down easy. Rogue does such a fine job.

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!
