I see a lot of negative comments on here crime people. I assume they never brew. This is almost a perfect English ale. Very similar to Newcastle, Roscoe’s amber is sweet and euphoric. Although its malty foretaste is reminiscent of a 40 of old E, it still gives the satisfaction of a traditional English ale. Color is spot on and its alcohol content is just right. The light honey taste will have you salivating for more....for $4 a six pack at big lots, its the deal of the century. In my semi-professional opinion, a winner!

Malty and just a little too sweet. Not much hop character. A decent beer for everyday drinking.

Very pleasant and approachable beer, well balanced and not too bitter. With a name like"Hop House" I was expecting big, bold hops and instead found it quite timid in the hops department. Not that it’s a bad thing.

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.

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.
