12 oz brown bottle

Roscoe’s Hop House Amber Ale filled my glass mug with a clear copper/light amber color forming a 1 ½ finger white head that showed good retention. The nose was dominated by light toasted malt. The taste was stronger than the nose, although still to the light side with light caramel malt upfront followed by very light hops to keep this brew nicely balanced. The finish was clean, a little dry and the body was a little to the thin side.

Roscoe’s Amber ale is a well balanced easy drinking Amber Ale sold at a very reasonable price – A good alternative to macros.

Not a craft brew by any means, brought it back for refund after tasting two bottles. A bit bubbly. Strange after taste.
At 5.99 sounds like a bargain but was seriously disappointed.
Vaguely reminded me of a Gene creme ale gone bad except Gene is a lot less expensive.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a houfbrau mug

A-sort of a coppery color. very clear. can see a few carbonation bubbles. little head. fell quick leaving a thin layer at top

S-smells a bit carbonated. getting sort of a caramely maltyiness to it.

T-really good. A bit sweet. Almost like a candy beer. Kind of tastes like apple juice. Actually alot like apple juice.

Mf-medium. not really thin but not really thick. very smooth.

O-This is much better than I was expecting. I really enjoy this and will definitly buy this one again. Very reasonably priced.

There's a package store near me that sells this beer for about the same price as Miller High Life. Why they do this I haven't a clue, because this is pretty good stuff.

Appearance: A coppery brown, with a decent amount of carbonation. The thin and creamy head looks inviting.

Smell: Not much there aroma wise, just a little malt and tea.

Taste: A great balance of malt and hops, but maybe a bit mild.

Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation, feels real smooth going down the throat.

Drinkability: Oh yes--the price is right and it's a great ale. I love to try this on tap.

Pours a really light copper color with a small cream colored head that falls fast to ring no real lace.

Aroma is caramel malts no real hop notes.

Taste is malty light caramel, some toasted malt notes also. Hops in finish tasty lightly floral no real bitterness, more like CO2 on the tongue feels like hops.

Mouthfeel is light side of medium carbonation lightly peppy.

Drinkability is eh nothing making me want to run out and buy this again when there are much better beers available.

A- It pours a a clear golden color it looks really good. It's about a two and a half finger head that stays for a bit, then goes in to a lace. There is a nice lace ring around the glass that goes all the way down.

S- I get a lot of malt in my nose it's a real smooth smell.

T- It's a vary smooth beer I taste a lot of malt with just a hint of hops. But other than that there just not a lot of flavor

M- It's got a full body on it. They nailed the carbonation in it, just right. It's a vary smooth beer all the way around.

D- I could drink this all day if I wanted to. It's kinda of a blaind beer there is no real wow factor for me. I would but this beer again if I hadn't had it for a while. It's mid pac for me.

A friend brought this back from Carson City Nevada of all places, looks like a long way from home....

Pours a clear and bright amber color, with a very faint white head.

Aromas are of biscuits, toast, and mildy brewed tea.

Taste is really mellow, and really bland. Not much going on with this one, some sweetness, as well as hints of tea, honey, and cream. There are also faint notes of tea and mineral hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. Feels smooth, with decent carbonation and body.

Drinkability is not bad. This beer is kind of boring, with not much going on, but there is also nothing offensive, so this goes down well and is kind of refreshing.
