Pours a cloudy golden color with a fingernail length high head. It recedes into a sudsy film that retains well. There is a decent amount of lacing.
The aroma is clean at first. However, it really opens up later and yields aromas of honey, wheat malt, grapenuts, and flowers.
As with the aroma, the taste evolves. Clean and with a touch of honey sweetness. The palate is relatively dry and the finish is clean. As the flavors open up, there is the taste of wheat, pear, green grape, apple and a touch of lemon that is not too sour. In the final phase, a touch of hops makes itself felt in the finish and adds a light bitterness.
On the lighter side of medium bodied, gently carbonated, dry and easy to drink. Silky and smooth. A real pleasure to drink. Not sure why it’s not rated higher.

Rogue Honey Kolsch has a thick, stark-white, creamy head, a hazy, golden, very bubbly appearance, with some bits of glass lacing. A descending yellow-gray cloud is evidenced, following the "swish & pour". Aroma is of sourdough, lemon, strange yeast, and a touch of honey. Taste is of sourdough, lemon, a bit of honey, some rounding hop bitterness, and a stinging aspect. Also, I detect tap water. Mouthfeel is medium, and Rogue Honey Koslch finishes medium dry.

Drank from a 12oz bottle. Brewed sometime in 2017. The beer has a fresh hoppie smell. The beer is slightly bitter with a moderate sweet aftertaste the taste of honey is just noticeable. I was expecting a fuller honey taste. Overall its a decent beer and it's flavorful enough that it's enjoyable. Though it was below my expectations the more of it i drink the more I like it

Fairly standard Kolsch and very easy to drink. Not much of a honey taste. Not one of Rogue's bests but not bad either. At $12 a 6pack it's a bit pricey for what you get, though.

Rogue makes some of my favorite beers, but I'm not a big fan of this one. Probably just the style. I enjoyed it as I do all beers.

Poured out of the new style bottle, slightly hazy. Yellow gold appearence with some lacing which goes away. Barley and grain sort of smell, some definitive yeast. Exactly like other kolsches I've tried, maybe a little more laid back and easy drinking. Slightly sweet but not any noticeable honey. Thicker than usual finish. A tiny bite. Moderate plus on the carbonation side, gets slightly better as it warms up. My girlfriend wanted a lot more honey and is disappointed. It's not too bad though.

Straw yellow color, medium white head, lot of residual foam in the glass. Sweet aroma to it. Touch of some spicy hops up front, mellowed out by the sweetness from the honey. Some fruity esters on the finish.
