3.11/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A-Pours a somewhat hazy, yellow color. A slight hat of white bubbles. Head leaves bubbly lacing speckles.

S-Aroma is soft. Grainy and sweet with The slightest whiff of tartness. A fruity component. Mild yeastiness.

T-Flavor isn't as sweet and I was dreading. The honey is well set. I find it to have a minute tartness. It's a bit floral, a-la honeysuckle. Also grainy and yeasty. Then more sweetness sets in sneakily.

M-Pretty crisp. Has more body than most of the style.

O/D-Mayb the bright. Painted bottle threw me off at first. Once I tried it, I found it to be pretty agreeable. I have no huge qualms with this average-at-best beer except for its ridiculous pricetag. $12 for a subtle flavored, low ABV ale. Rip-off.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and white grape juice aromas. Taste is much the same with white grape juice and honey flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fruit forward presence in both the aroma and flavor that makes this one tasty and refreshing.

On visiting a sort of local on the way home I was so surprised to see this for one firstly my favourite bottlo did not get it in and they could of and two it's a bloody bright yellow bottle that stands out like dog balls in a sea of mecrioditity,any way it pours a light golden yellow pretty close to golden hue with a creamy three finger head and heaps of lacing everywhere,the smell is bananna,very sweet malts and a touch of honey almost mead like,the feel is light bodied,moderately carbonated and silky smooth with pretty simple tastes of noble hops,a herbal grassiness,sweet malts and finished with a honey alcoholniss and yeah I wasn't expecting anything out of this world but I feel the keep it simple stupid method works for this one and even though I won't buy it again it is bloody easy to drink on a hot day like today cheers.

Rogue Farms Honey Kolsch

Appearance: straw yellow, pillow head, and some good lacing.

Smell: nice malts, light fruit, and a light sweetness.

Taste: mildly warm malts, very light sour fruits, and a very very light hops.

Mouthfeel: light.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. Flavors are full yet light, without being watery. Don't expect any bold flavors out of this.

Bright golden in body with thin white head. Aroma of cereal grains, floral notes, and a touch of honey. Tastes of lemon-touched grains, floral notes, and a subtle undertone of honey. Light in body with medium carbonation. A dry Kolsch with a nice sweet note.
