Pours a light golden honey color with a slight haze. The head is white with moderate retention and moderate lacing. The carbonation looks inviting with lots of tiny bubbles rushing to the top.
Upfront on the nose you get honey with a hint of lemon with some faint grains. The honey and lemon are the star of the show.
The taste is similar although with the grains being more pronounced. There is also some honey aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is very nice. Its light bodied and with playful carbonation. Perfect for a hot Texas spring day.

The can is cute (orange background with a honeybee), but this beer is pretty bland. The taste is like a basic lager (not really a kölsch), but with no honey taste ...although if you sniff the glass you can smell the honey. It was very easy to drink, but not very "Kölsch" nor very honey flavored. I did finish it without any problem, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Very attractive can that contains a very impressive product. The addition of honey makes this one of the most unusual and enjoyable Kolsch-style ales I've tried. Glad that Rogue shipped it from OR to MA which enabled me to try it. I'll be a repeat purchaser.

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.
