COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A creamy, flavorful Amber that’s smooth and easy to drink. Drop Top is fermented by an American Ale yeast to produce beer with a clean flavor and fruity aroma. The velvet texture is from the use of Honey malt and a touch of milk sugar. The Magnum bittering hops provide soft bitterness, while Simcoe, a newly developed hop variety, adds unique hop flavor and aroma.

A bit of bready malt in the nose, with some vaguely tart fruity character, accompanied by a balanced, freshly herbal hop presence. The taste has a somewhat biscuity flavor up front with some caramel sweetness. Surprisingly tart in the end, although not over the top. Hop bitterness is middle-of-the-road, with a balanced fruity and herbal flavor. Not bad.

Light caramel sweetness detected, not much of hoppiness. Quite disappointingly bland, but nothing offensive here either. Preferable to bulk lagers any day.

This beer smells incredible, but does not taste like it smells. It has a nice caramel aroma to it, but is way too carbonated and has a quick drying finish. Those same caramel notes come rushing back when you swallow... but they are dry and weak. This is a good beer for someone that doesn’t know what craft beer is. Plus, I love the label. The dog is adorable! I am glad that this is on our 1001 Bottles list, but I wouldn’t order it again.

A finger and a half of head on a clear, medium straw colored body. The aroma is milled grain, hay and orange. NIce. The flavor is smooth with a mild malt sweet and mild lemon bitterness. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation. It’s tasty and sessionable.

On tap @ Wingers, Elko, NV. Pours a clear medium amber w/ minimal head. Not too much taste to speak of, some malt, but fairly watery and bland. Goes down like a light beer, but surprisingly has a decent aftertaste.

My wife bought this - I’m not sure why - but it’s in the house, so I guess I’ll rate it - clear dark copper - creamy, well-sustained head - nose of lightly floral hops, light caramel sweetness, a bit of biscuity malt - light body - creamy texture - nothing offensive here, but pretty darn boring - some toasted grain, some bready malt - lightly estery on the tail end, with mildly peppery hops - bland, but drinkable.

12 ounce bottle at the Beerhive. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. No nose, I mean you’d have to struggle with olfactory greatness to achieve much. Light apricots, biscuit, watery, nothing offensive and very light.

Gold, clear, white head. No detectable aroma. Flavor is neutral malt with some crystal malt sweetness, finish is on sweet side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice easy drinking amber. Clean Flavor with slight sweetness. Very little hop presence. Enough for bittering and some help towards aroma but the honey malt and milk sugar stand out. A general go to when wanting something pleasant to drink.
