COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A creamy, flavorful Amber thatís 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.

Not impressed, just an average rating. Appearance is bland, with little head on amber body Aroma is light malt, taste is malt and some caramel. This is on the 1001 Beers to Try list, but canít figure out why....

Bottle bought by a friend who visited Portland. Clear amber with a large white head. Some light fruit, cookies, malt and light hops. On the thin side. Drinkable but nothing special.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2013
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.

Migmar (251) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 30, 2013
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 doesnít 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 wouldnít order it again.

Fatehunter (1333) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2013
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. Itís tasty and sessionable.

fattybladdy (603) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2013
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.
