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 ounce bottle at the Beerhive. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. No nose, I mean you’d have to struggle with olfactory greatness to achieve much. Light apricots, biscuit, watery, nothing offensive and very light.

Ibrew2or3 (8040) - 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.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Lightly sweet toffee malt aroma with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Well balanced flavor with a light sweetness and a light bitterness in the finish. Decent.

drowland (7868) - Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours very light amber, almost orange, very clear and with a small white head that goes away fast. Aroma is a bit of malt with honey and light flowers. The flavor is a hint of malt followed by a lot of sweet, sugar, and honey and just a hint of hop bitterness on the finish. It is on the creamy side, and even with its high carbonation, the beer still tends to stick and annoy a bit.

Bottle. Pours clear amber body no head. Aroma is smooth malt. The taste is essentially flavorless malt. BORING.

gyllenbock (7306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle bought by a friend who visited Portland. Clear amber with a large white head. Some light fruit, cookies, malt and light hops. On the thin side. Drinkable but nothing special.

Ernest (7249) - 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.
