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.

Good amber ale with brown sugar, caramel, and honey flavors. Medium sweet and smooth.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate amber color with a single-finger off white head and not too much lacing as it recedes. The nose is fairly one-dimensional, bringing notes of caramel and a bit of baked bread. The taste is the same without much other than a bit of bread crust. Medium body with moderate carbonation levels. Thereís nothing terribly special about this beer, although there arenít any clear defects, either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-21-2010

Pours light amber color producing a small head. Aromas are slight almost non exsistant. Tastes like a typical amber ale. Drinkable but middle of the road.

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Pours a pale caramel color with a little bit of white head. Aroma is very mild...almost non-existent, but maybe a hint of malt. Strong carbonation with a thin mouthfeel. Flavor is moderately sweet with hint of caramel and malt. Not very hoppy. Clean finish. Not much to this, but itís drinkable.

osu97gp (633) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours a hazy orange color with a very small fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel and light fruit. Flavor is quite sweet almost tea with really nothing else going on. Middling quality beer.

thornecb (4167) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Pours clear amber into a shaker. No head, no lace. Mild honey and resin aromas. Fizzy with honey and caramel upfront turning to a mild resin finish.

Not much here. Typical amber. Mediocre taste and aroma. Nutty by nature.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2011
bottle. Pours clear autumn amber color, with minimal to no gray head. Aroma of dust, leaves, caramel. Medium to light bodied, and flavor at first presents caramel and then moves to a dusty, nutty finish of almond, cashew. I guess I can see what they were going for here but ultimately it leaves a flat, underwhelming impression. Thatís even taking into account that this is meant to be a lighter session beer. It is far from horrible or undrinkable, and it is kind of unique in a way, but this will be a one time thing for me.

Rather weak maltiness, just didnít work at all. Probably among the best examples of a below average amber ale ever.
