While shopping at Meijer, this is the last beer from the Roscoe’s Hop House. There is really no history but please go back to my earlier blog to get a little bit of their history. The beer we are going to feature is their Amber Ale. Let us get into the beer.
This Amber Ale has a dark copper color without a head to it. A sweet malty smell is in the beer. The taste has a sweet malty in the beer. It is drinkable beer but it is kind of water down beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
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 Amber 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.
Here is a few awards this beer won from their website (www.roscoeshophouse.com):
Gold Medal “Exceptional” – World Beer Championship, 2009
88 Points “Highly Recommended” – Beverage Testing Institute 2011
86 Points/ Best Buy – Wine Enthusiast, March 2010

Twitter: there is no twitter account
In closing, I love trying new beers all the time. It keeps me up to speed on what breweries are doing around the country or the world. However, I did kind of enjoy their other beers, I normally do not this about any beer but this beer is really bad. I am not going to sugar coat it and be really nice about it. There is a little flavor but it is really water down. It is drinkable because of that fact. I will go and drink a Pabst or a Rolling Rock. Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
