COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harkening back to old world brewing styles, Roscoe’s Hop House uses the highest quality malts and hops to bring forth this smooth, bright-flavored Amber Ale. With a nod to the past, this nicely balanced, true ale is brewed using traditional brewing methods for a unique flavor profile. The password to our best kept secret is found inside the bottle.

Dark Amber, Good Bubbly Head Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Sweet Malt, Sweet Syrup, Honey. Too sweet, No Hops or bitter noticeable. Just OK for me and I would say skip it, although my wife liked it.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from the Safeway in Leesburg. It pours a nice amber color with a small white head. The nose is light with a touch of bread and caramel. The flavor is on the sweet side with some malt, bread, and honey notes. Not really anything in the way of balancing bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a sweet finish. Not remarkable in any way.

12oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a nice white head that disappears too fast and leaves almost no lacing. Not much aroma but what there is, is bread. Faint taste of caramel, grass, alkaline with soft carbonation and a sticky sweet lingering finish. Not so hot.

Bottle. The wife picked this up at our local grocer(it was on sale). Pours a very light copper/amber with very slight head. In fact, "very slight" defines this beer. Very slight malt and fruit aroma. Taste is a bit too sweet, with very light fruit esters. Crisp, but sweet finish.

The main fault with this beer is that is too sweet, not in a malty way but taste too syrupy. Very little hops if any. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Copper and orange under a pithy bubbly head which fades into a collar with a small puddle hovering in the middle. Swirls average.
Nose: Generic wheat breads with faint generic sweetness in the middle. Peach pulp and applesauce. Dampness.
Palate: Chewy medium-light weight and mouthfeel. Damp generic chewy wheat breads – slightly sweet. Peach fuzz and peach pulp and apricots. Powdered sugar sweetness on top the tongue. Foamy. Applesauce and white bread and powdered sugar sweetness.
Final Thoughts: Meh. There are far better amber ales out there to drink. Period. Whether new to craft beer and looking to get your tastebuds wet or a veteran of the craft beer world, skip Roscoe’s and move on to something else better, Bells Amber maybe…and a slew of others.

dalekliz (899) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with a hint of bitterness, of malt, honey, and citrus hops. Taste is sweet and crisp, of malt, candied citrus, hops, and lots of honey. Lingering light sweetness. Not bad.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle… Clear light amber ale with a small, lightly tanned head. Restrained aroma of cereal grains and caramel. Light to medium-bodied and thin with easygoing carbonation. Overly-sweet, nearly nondescript flavor - although it does hint at caramel, toffee and apple. Short, sweet finish.
