Bottle. Bronze with a slightly metallic flavour. Nothing wrong with it but nothing right either. On the never drink again list.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical amber. Sweet malt flavor with a little earthy hop flavor in the finish. I thought this was better than most of the other ratings I’m seeing, but still nothing special.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 Bottle from Tesco, Prestwich. Golden-amber with a carbonation and a bubbly head. Has lager style malts, certainly in its nose. Has a lightish orange flavoured fruitiness in taste.

Amber to light brown in colour. A fair amount of honey in the aroma. Some caramel too. Generic biscuity feel. Slight bittersweetness. Lacks depth.

Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry and mildly crisp. Sweetish airy malts, some lactose. Fair amount of esters. Just a touch of citric hop. Dry finish. Messy! Meh!

Aroma is slight apple, caramel and some sulphur. Taste is light sweet malts with caramel and a light bland bitterness. Malt and hop character fairly shallow. Appearance is a clear gold / light brown. Head is pearl and retains very poorly.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy amber color with a one finger-ed white foamy head that dies within about a minute and leaves some decent sliding lacing.
The smell had a burnt caramel maltiness running about it.
The taste was mainly malty but not exactly the most desirable, borderline bland.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, last Roscoe’s to upload here and there’s nothing impressive about any of their beers. I don’t think their beers are bad, they’re just not something to really seek out.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco Wrexham. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is slightly malty caramel. Taste is smooth malt, caramel, nutty and slight hops. Decent carbonation, not much of an aftertaste. Tastes a little like a poor man’s Brooklyn lager or Sam Adams Boston lager. Okay but not as bad as people have been rating previously.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a thin white head that quickly fades. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of wet cardboard, honey and wood. Flavour is basically a corny Lager but with more musty sweetness. Sour metallic finish. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. A very dull beer - tastes like a poor homebrew. I couldn’t finish it.
