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.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber with an average-sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus and green apple apple. Flavor of malt, cider and mild hops with buttereryness in the finish.

Another great beer from the Widmer bothers. A very nice well rounded amber ale. Good use of 2 fairly new hops and a malty balance. Worth a go!

Not much smell when i popped the top off. Light amber in color, small white head that didnt hang around very long, very watery taste and finish.....even though has a watery hops note (reminiscent of a "light" amber beer) its drinkable..other that that, not much else to say about this amber beer .

Good taste, with a hint of fruit, perhaps apple. The fruit taste wasnít overwhelming at all, it was well balanced. This was a tasty beer.

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.

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.

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.

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.
