2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper and orange under a pithy bubbly head which fades into a collar with a small puddle hovering in the middle. Swirls average.
Generic wheat breads with faint generic sweetness in the middle. Peach pulp and applesauce. Dampness.
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.
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
bought a 6-pack on sale for 6.99
this beer is just odd, I home-brew a lot and this was very disappointed for a craft beer. Caramel note is strong, odd aftertaste, metallic poss. , but more like plastic, foam head etc. all within reason, but deff. pass on this one.
