Rogue Farms Honey Kölsch is a German-style Kölsch brewed by Rogue Ales, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a bottle.
Pours a mostly-clear goldenrod with a thin head of bubbly white froth that dissipates rapidly. Effervescence is apparent as a steady stream of bubbles rises in the glass.
Soft aroma offers a scent of cracker malt, grassy hops, and backed subtly with wild honey.
A quintet of malts gives the palate a grainy, cracker flavor. Transitions to a mild bite of grassy and peppery hops. Sweet honey lingers on the tongue at the finish.
Mouthfeel has a light body and ample carbonation.
The Rogue Farms Honey Kölsch makes for a nice refresher with a palate that’s light and well balanced. An excellent representation of the style.
