From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Magic Hat Roxy Rolles

Pours a translucent amber-orange, good head retention and lacing.  
Substantial hop flavor throughout, slight bitterness with hints of pine,
light spice and citrus fruits. Some subtle caramel malt in the finish brings
about a smooth balance. Creamy and smooth; one of the better offerings
from Magic Hat.

Overall rating: Good

Be sure to use a tulip glass to enjoy all of this beer's
complexity. The brew is clear yellow in color with a huge foamy
head that lasts.  First sip highlights clean pale malts layered
with yeasty spiciness,peppery and light lemon zest. Tart green
apples, honey, follow with a light hop bitterness at the back.

Sparkling carbonation, smooth alcohol subtext; it finishes
clean, with a champagne like dryness.  

Overall Rating -   Excellent

This beer opens with a nose of grapefruit,  
bittering hops, and a bit of the bready
malts. Fairly light bodied with modest
carbonated. A lemony  zest quickly
dominates in a grapefruit/orange
background. There is a very nice bittering
Hints of cracked grain huskiness lingering
around the edges. A decent session beer.

Overall ratting -  above average.
