So, of course, this means the "Hops Whores" out there don't really care much for this one, but that's okay. To each their own, I say.
I'll update on the pour and lace qualities shortly.
The Mystery Unfolds!
I'm not sure what the mystery is, exactly, but there is one hinted to at their Website:
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.Inasmuch as I can't find the clue, I'll just settle for an enjoyable, pleasing beer that I can enjoy every day.
Thoughts from the bottom of the glass:
Color: Golden yellow
Aroma: Malty goodness
Hops: Mild and well balanced with the sweetness and the malt
Temperature Sweet Spot: Need to double check thiss
My Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Other reviews worth a sip
This guy over at the Beer Almanac did the work so I didn't have to break open the bottle to see if there was a secret code in it: http://thebeeralmanac.com/2011/05/review-roscoes-hop-house-amber-ale/
UPDATE (05-26-2012): Since I wrote this review, I have purchased two six-packs of it. This means I'm on my third six pack since I discovered it. Obviously, this is one of my new favorites for everyday drinking after a hard day's work (and lately, I've been catching up on chores around the house, so I actually have been working hard). Therefore, I'm adding this one to my Favorite's list.
