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.

From the file last updated in 2010. Pours gold. Aroma is hoppy. Flavor is malt and citrus hop.

"not bad. wasnt expecting much, but this is quite refreshing. the honey is a nice touch, and of course Rogue wont 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.

this beer pours a bright golden colour with a subtley sweet honey aroma. its 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 hasnt 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.

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.

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 Ive come to expect out of a cream ale.

Wasnt 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 aromas 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 thats what youre hoping to find.
