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.

Pours a dark golden color with white head. I expected it to be more red. Nice lacing. Smell was unpleasant metalic aroma. Taste included very sweet malts with almost no hops. A funny aftertaste...kind of like rusty metal.

Only drank this from a bottle, but still thought it was enjoyable despite its RB rating.

Bottle. Light amber color, average head that disappears quickly. Flavor was oh so slightly sweet that balances on almost just right and almost too much. Aroma was caramel, malty and light and watery.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2011
11/23/11. 12oz bottle. Clear very light amber pour with a small khaki head that barely laces at all. Somewhat plain aroma with green apples and a bit of toffee and caramel. Sweet caramel flavor as well with dashes of orange peel and apples. MEH.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Aromas and tastes of grains, toasty, with more caramel in the tastes.

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - Kerry Forest - 12 oz bottle. Very light copper translucent pout with absolutely no head. Aroma has a hint of hard candy sweetness and some fresh lake water. Flavor is rather bland and uneventful. Some light caramel accents, very brief citrus bitterness and some root beer hard candy notes. Mouthfeel is slightly metallic. Drinkable, but unremarkable.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Clear marzen color, thin white head, OK label, twistoff longneck. Slightly sweet, lightly toasted, syrupy aroma. Tastes like a Vienna or a Marzen. Sweetish, woody, a little perfumy, a little toasty. Slight sour astringency on a medium body. Gets a little fizzy sometimes. Cane syrup flavors on the lips. Better than I expected, not great. ABC Liquors, Kerry Forest Parkway.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2011
The aroma is malty and sweet with a touch of hops. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is a middle of the road amber with no major flaws however I feel stupid for looking in the bottle for a password.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle from Meijer’s in Sandusky, Ohio. Pours deep caramel toward burnt sienna with off-khaki head. Nose is caramel malt, viennaish. Tastes very caramelly, with notes of mild hops and earthy nuttiness. Nothing exciting here, but nothing terribly offensive either.

geeklimit (131) - USA - MAY 7, 2011
Pours a very clear dark amber, moderately carbonated with a small sudsy head. Prominent malt aroma with a pronounced malty taste. Hardly noticeable hops flavor under an extremely malty palate. OK mouth feel with a sticky finish.
