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.

bhensonb (10959) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle from a local Save Mart. Pours light amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma reminds of a sweet pale lager. Near med body with foamy carb. Flavor is present - a little carmel, less hop. Craft beer imitation/rip off.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle from Meijer in Ludington , MI. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with frair lacing. Moderate grainy malt aroma. Medium body with thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft sweet brew.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, 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.

daknole (9055) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Clear copper pour. White head. Sweet bready aroma. Flavor is very sweet. Caramel malt, some yeast and honey. Not too bad. A tad too sweet though.

hopdog (8867) - 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.

Dogbrick (7993) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Clear pale copper color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of stale grain and a bit of skunk. Light-bodied with a rotten fruit character and notes of grainy malt and astringent hops. The finish is short and leaves an off fruit and malt aftertaste. Another poorly executed Roscoe’s beer.

DocLock (7832) - 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.

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.
