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.

I have had this in bottle and tap and I would have have to say the tap was significantly better. Very sweet honey flavor, smooth, very easy to drink not bitter at all.

On tap or in bottle this is a beer you dont want to miss out on. Creamy and bitterly sweet, if you can actually put that all together. Nice ale to sit down and enjoy.

From bottle. Poured amber with little, quick dissolving head. First taste of apricots (!?). Nice start with a dissappointing, watery finish. Overall not bad. A good "lawnmower" beer.

Was not tasting to rate, but this is my feel from memory. Yellow color with med head, somewhat thin body with subtle hops. Has a mass-produced feel to the mouth, and affects my body like a cheaper ale. Probably due to sugar. drinkable but not my favorite on tap. From Indigo Alley in Fernandina, a nice neighborhood pub.

One of my personal favorites. Made here in Portland, OR, not fancy beer, not a complex beer, not a "full" bodied beer, but a simple, drinkable and a beer that goes with different foods easily, and most importantly it is a beer that one does not get tired of drinking.

Mild taste and spell. Very easy to drink and has a milky aftertaste that diminishes quickly

We just started carrying this beer on tap where I work. I was skeptical because Iím not a huge fan of the widmer drifter pale ale, however this beer is pretty good. I really enjoyed the honey characteristic it leaves after swallowed.

A great beer, that I used to take for granted. With so many great beers in the Portland area (Widmer, McMennamins, Hair of the Dog, etc...) As Iíve gone around the US and tasted their beer, this one is head and shoulders over any other amber Iíve found except Smithwicks.

Yeasty aroma with a clear gold look. Light taste and good finish. Not a big fan of Ambers but this is one I favor.
