tap - Pours golden and smells sweet. The flavor is mostly malt as I expected with a touch of honey. The body is too thin and overall it’s too light for my tastes, but not bad for what it is. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2006
A light golden cream ale. Simply put as having a full honey aroma and slight in the finish. Very refreshing beer. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco, CA. Hazy yellow color with white head that laced the glass. Grainy, fruity aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet with a distinct touch of honey. Ibrew2or3 (8743) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Golden color with slight haze and small white head. Grainy malt and slight sweet citrus aroma. The taste has a nice grain malt flavor throughout the taste profile. There is also a sugar based creaminess midway that approaches a cream soda flavor. There is a light hop bitterness as well. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2006
First cream ale for me. It was interesting enough. Hazy orange gold with a small white head. Oddly indeterminate aroma. I wouldn’t have said cream and honey if I hadn’t read the label. Same with the flavour: oily mouthfeel that I suppose did have hints of creaminess; the rest was grassy with a pleasant dry finish. Overall quite good.

The aroma has citrus, basement smells, butter, and light honey; basically it’s funky. The appearance is orange/gold with brown particles floating in the head. The flavor has honey, butter, malt, and some hop bitterness. The palate is average. This is not my favorite Rogue. User37895 (3042) - - JUN 5, 2006
This one didn’t stand out, but I probably shouldn’t have had it within 20mins of the DFH 120 DIPA. Either way, not much there in appearance (somewhat hazy yellow, slight orange), aroma, or flavor (I picked up the honey). Mouthfeel was dry and very light. Not enough umph in this one.

Cloudy Orangey brown, with virtually no head. Floral, honeyish aroma, with notes of applesauce and vanilla. Some hop flavor, then an understated honey flavor. Tasty, would make a good first beer of the evening. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2006
There is not much else to say about this that the commercial description does not speak of. A very smooth and malty cream ale, with obvious hints of sweet flowers and honey. A rich maltiness, that is very smooth and creamy, this is very easy to drink.fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2006

Malts and honey as an afterthough and slightly in the aftertaste. Not very reminiscent of a cream ale and my first disappointment from Rogue.
Cloudy golden color. Malt aroma. Malt and wet malt taste, roasted malt, quite strong ending bitterness. Honey?
