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 Pale 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.

Very drinkable pale ale - good session beer. Nothing special nothing needing to be special - This was on sale for like $6.99 or something...

Reviewed from notes. This one was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head. There is some light lacing that tries to stick to the sides but mainly slides for the most part. The smell had some cooked vegetal substance I couldn’t quite right place. The taste was slightly bitter for the sake of being bitter. Light English maltiness pervades into the flavor. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body. It shows a decent sessionability. Overall, this one is your basic pale ale that is slightly borderline to an English pale ale.

bottle. deep golden with small head. Mild malt base and rather mild hops. Again, the hops seem a bit dull and flavorless. At least it was cheap.

Looks great. Tastes not so much. Nothing objectionable, just not much to it.

Rated on 8-17-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small fizzy off-white head with a short retention, transparent gold body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt and citrus hops. The Taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt and citrus hops. The Palate somewhat fizzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is easy to drink because there is not much going on with the flavor. This is a beer I do not recommend trying.

Pretty good beer. Light hoppiness and bitterness, followed by light fruits. Enjoyed with Zack at his house ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I liked this beer. It’s kind of mild for a pale ale..less strong than say IPA, but it’s not IPA and it doesn’t claim to be. It does have the pale ale aftertaste, but as I said, milder. I guess the aftertaste is the hops. I’m not a fancy beer connoisseur, my usual style is Miller High Life, so beer connoisseurs, feel free to disregard my comments. I got this beer at one of my favorite fancy beer stores...Big Lots $6.00 a 12 pack. For $6.00 a 12 pack beer, it’s very good. I consider it a decent beer at a regular beer price.

I created an account here just to warn others of this brew. I picked up a 12pk for $8.99 and at first taste realized I’d been had by a New York brewer. It is like milwaukee’s best in a bottle claiming to be a pale ale. brewed cheaply and tastes like it, on par with Simpler Times lager from Trader Joe’s at twice the price. Aroma, taste, appearance, palate and overall that of a Mr. Beer homebrew, which explains the great head and lacing. It will be a chore to get through this 12 pk and I will steer clear of roscoe’s house of filth on the future.

Poured to almost a Hazey yellow or gold. Very little white head leaving very little sud lines. Smells of a light citrus or grapefruit. Aftertaste is bitter almost a hint of lime

NeoHippie2 (924) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Golden pour with a white head. Aromas of watery malts and extremely faint hops. Thin watery body with minimal flavor, some citrus hop character just barely creeps out in the finish. Pretty weak swill. Hop House huh? I don’t think so.

Pershing (475) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Clear gold with a decent lasting white head. Floral hop aroma with a little malt. Thin watery taste with less hop bitterness than I expected. Clean light finish. Not bad, but not good either. for $6.99 a six is worth it.
