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.

Widmer Brothers Drop Top Amber Ale has a thin, cream-colored head, and a mostly clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with some thin lacing left down the glass. The aroma is mainly bready malt, but some citrus and hops are detected with a deep inhalation. Taste is almost all Orange Julius, with some hop spice at the end and faint breadiness. The mouthfeel has a fluffy ale body, and Widmer Brothers Drop Top Amber Ale finishes mostly dry, easy-drinking, and delicious. There is a definite piney aftertaste. Overall, I really enjoyed this one, and I rate it highly. RJT

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Nose is a lighty sweet english malt/ yeast not too much at first.Golden copper in color.Not much head,minimal lacing. Slick smooth light sweet taste and sweet malt after taste,slight roast or dry roast barely but enough to notice.I can see the softness in this beer, dont know if the flavor hops and malt balance well ,but is an interesting flavor. Detecting some mintiness from the hop bitterness,herbal minty pepper soft bittering.A good beer,fairly differnt from the average amber,but above average.Worth a second but calling it quits after that. Has an english minty peppery thing that just isnt my thing,im not a big english fan but this is a fairly unique amber, just not one of my favs, but still a very good beer,not a flavor i would come back to often.

Pours an inviting golden amber with a fairly decent white head. Aroma is more fruity than malty and just slightly sweet with a whisper of hops. Flavor is fruity and malty, subtly sweet and subtly hoppy, very enjoyable. Texture is fairly fizzy and smooth. A good one.

Amber with a weak head. Aroma of caramel with some fruit and hops. Taste is lightly sweet with a minimal hop presence. The body is medium-thin and smooth, but there’s not a whole lot of backbone. It’s pretty good if you’re looking for something really easy drinking.

beerbill (3575) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy amber with a thin off-white head that fades to a scummy film before the second sip and leaves very little lace. The walls of my glass are covered with lots of fat air bubbles. Not a very attractive looking beer. The aroma is weak malt with some leafy hops in the nose as well. The flavor is weak malt with just a bit of caramel and mild hops bitterness at the finish. Underwhelming.

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Pretty average beer. Minimal aroma appreciated. Some carmel malts and noble hops in aroma. Not much malt in the flavor but enough to sustain it. A little to thin and not much distance in the finish. Better than macrobrew but not an exciting option.

BobbyAnalog (334) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Tastes of salt water taffy, pepper flakes, mild caramel. The hue of the ale is a penny copper. A thin, frothy head paddles around on the surface of the beer. Insanely drinkable when thirsty, but if you’re in the sipping mood this brew has the muscle of a limp armed ballplayer. Hints of buttery lettuce and honey dont quite save this ale from jumping off a precipice of mediocrity.

12 oz. bottle from Capone’s. The pour is turbid dullish dark straw colored with about half an inch of clingy white head. Nose is malty, with mild honey and hops, some fruitiness. Tastes malty, with fruity apricotty notes, an overall semi-sweet palate, medium heft, not terribly complex. A decent sessionable beer, but not a world beater.
