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.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for the bottle. This beer is a pale orange-amber color with a medium thin and bubbly off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Mild malt aroma with underlying hops. Medium-bodied yet watery at times, with caramel malt, nut and light hops flavors. The finish is sweet and malty and short-lived, leaving just a hint of hops aftertaste. Yawn.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - 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.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
Had this at the french restaurant on the 10th floor of the Eiffel Tower restaurant in the Paris hotel & casino Las Vegas. It’s interesting to see that ratings for this brew seem to be all over the map! I had this with a few buddies, and we all agreed that it was terrific. Clear toffee-amber with aromas of butterscotch, apricot, and pepper. Delicious palate that more resembles an American pale than an amber in its complexity-- caramel malt with citrus and spice elements with subtle bitterness in the finish.

This amber ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and a floral aroma. The caramel malt flavor is a bit sweet with some subtle hopping at the finish.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately yeasty (dough, sweat), lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very yeasty smelling, and the citric quality doesn't suit my tastes. Sleep inducing, much like my rating style.
