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.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5% abv

Appearance- Deep goldenrod yellow, much like the color of honey. Fine bubbled white head with medium retention. Middle of the road in terms of clarity.

Smell- Crackers, grains, hints of honey

Taste- Plenty of grain, giving the malt base plenty of depth. Dry, crackery bready flavors picks up sweetness from ample notes of honey. Honey blends well with the heavy grain flavor. Ends slightly bitter with the lingering of honey.

Mouthfeel- Medium light in body with active carbonation.

Overall- Well balanced, not overly sweet either. Indicative of natural ingredients, a point elaborated on in the label and 6 pack holder. Well done to suit the kolsch style, and a nice twist with the honey addition. I'll call this one well crafted.

This was an interesting take on a kolsch, if a bit more intense than most. The honey isn't overpowering, but adds a nice subtle touch of sweetness without being sticky or dominating the palate. You don't smell it much, but it's there. Always up for a Rogue experimental beer.
