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.

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.

Bottle from a mix pack. Nose has caramel and grains to it, though slightly off. Taste is a little sweet with toasty grains. Fine, but entirely meh.

Hard pour left an evaporating head.. no lacing .. crystal clear honey orange brew. Smell is turned toward yeasty fruits... lite toasted malts.. a touch of citrus and spicy malts.. Flavor is the same and not much to pick out of the mix.. lighter body than exepcted.. sessionable in a big way... I donít really know what to say about this beer.. average across the board.. if you want a nice American Amber.... there are way better ones out there.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: slight offwhite head, orange straw color, cloudy, ok lacing. Aroma: peat, straw, light fruitiness, roasted oats even. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet grain that lingers, tastes like oats to me, musty oats. Overall, pretty horrible beer.

honey malt and milk sugar? interesting. this is an above average amber, but not at the top. good slightly hoppy finish after the sweet malt up front. refreshing and worth a try if a bit simple."

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Copper clear beer, moderate off-white head fades down to a stable collar. Good aroma, light and biscuit-y. Nice undertones in the taste, malty and relatively mild, errs towards thin but not bad. Palate is easy, good character. Not a gold medal - honorable mention.

This is good beer out of the tap or bottle especially if its really cold. Iíve found that those of us who like it like it a lot and buy it all the time. Its good "take anywhere" micro brew.
