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.

12 oz. bottle- Pours clear amber with a nice one finger head and no lacework, aroma is sweet and citrusy similar to an IPA only with no bitterness. The flavor is light malt and not much else, watery with amber style malt. Unimpressed with the beer overall, a decent amber ale, but a pretty uninspired beer as a whole.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. Good head retention and some lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and hops in the finish. The taste is grainy malts with some toastiness, tart notes, caramel and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied.

Not a bad beer. Pour is smooth and clean. The honey flavor is somewhat mild. Beer is ok

Photog (215) - Camillus, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Poured with an amber color and a thin white head. Aroma is doughy, slightly caramel, and a faint hint of hops. The taste is medium sweetness, light hops, but a bit watery. There isn’t a strong flavor anywhere but drinkable.

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass at North in Austin, TX. This is a pretty good example of what can happen when you combine a macro-micro type brewery with an amorphous style. This poured the color of pale root beer and drank with a light body and faint hints of cola in a modestly clean finish. This is not disgusting, but it has no real character either. Ask a maximum likelihood algorithm or a large corporation to brew up an ale that would seem crafty but would sell to folks who were used to drinking Coke, and this is what you would get.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours light amber with only a thin ring of foam around the edge. Smells doughy with hints of caramel and fruit. Smooth caramel and dough flavor reminiscent of an English bitter. Balanced, leaning slightly toward sweet. Somewhat bland but very easy to drink. Could help convert macro drinkers.

jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2010
(bottle, 3/24/10). Clear amber color. Medium off white head, which is mostly diminishing. Light toasted bread aroma. Flavor of the same, with light caramel. Avg duration. Smooth finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Spare lacing.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Pours clear dull copper with off white head. The aroma has notes of crystal malts, oxidation, some esters and syrup covered pancakes. The taste is oddly and unfortunately similar with peach, syrup and pancakes mixing with a touch of pine, sweet malts and oxidation. Not a hateful beer but just an odd jumbled mess of a beer.

spilledpint (341) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Notes from Sunday, July 04 2010 Ar: A bit of roast malt. Nothing much going on here. Ap: Pours a light amber-orange with a minimal head that dissipates quickly. F: Nothing interesting. A bit of malt and some honey. P: Thin body, extremely highly carbonated. O: This was left over from a friend, and I figured it was worth trying. I was wrong.

There is a crisp beginning followed by a refreshing malt flavor and a subtle hop finish. This is a good average amber ale.
