Magic Hat Brewing Company - Roxy Rolles
Beer Type: American Amber/Red Ale
Appearance: 12 oz. brown bottle with a red Magic Hat label featuring a biker of some sort. Beer is a nice light brown color with a thick off-white head.
Smell: Plenty of hops along with some malt as well. Smells like what I have come to expect a red ale to smell like!
First Drink: Plenty of the caramel malt followed quickly by some spicy hops.
Mouthfeel: A little oily but the overall sensation is smooth.
Last Drink: More of the floral hops comes through but I am also getting something a bit "stale" and bitter. Not liking it.
Drinkability: This is a Fall seasonal I am drinking in the Winter. Reminds me more of a Bock or Doppelbock than a Red or Amber ale.
Notes: Might just be a bit old, wish I had a chance to try this when it was more fresh.
Verdict: 3 out of 5. Some interesting flavors going on but not all of them are ones I like.
