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 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off-white head that fades and leaves very little lace. The aroma is mild malt with some leafy hops in the nose as well. The flavor is light with a refreshing tang. Not bad as a basic beer but not really notable.

Nice light copper color with thick yellow head. Tons of bubbles. Can’t make out much in the nose. Sort of metallic smelling, not much hop aroma. The taste is pretty disappointing. Bitter throughout, but not very complex. It’s more like a cheap lager in taste than an ale. Bubbly mouth-feel. I imagine it could be a nice light summer beer, but nothing more. Next!

Very drinkable beer. Had from in a glass from the traditional brown widmer bottle. Very pleasant flavor with almost wheaty overtones. Has a nose of citrus. Nice to sit down to on a hot afternoon. Don't drink it if you are in a complicated mood.

(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!

JNSTEX (12) - Bryan, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2007
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 wasn’t 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.
