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.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours light amber with only a thin ring of foam around the edge. Smells doughy with hints of caramel and fruit. Smooth caramel and dough flavor reminiscent of an English bitter. Balanced, leaning slightly toward sweet. Somewhat bland but very easy to drink. Could help convert macro drinkers.

honey malt and milk sugar? interesting. this is an above average amber, but not at the top. good slightly hoppy finish after the sweet malt up front. refreshing and worth a try if a bit simple."

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Copper clear beer, moderate off-white head fades down to a stable collar. Good aroma, light and biscuit-y. Nice undertones in the taste, malty and relatively mild, errs towards thin but not bad. Palate is easy, good character. Not a gold medal - honorable mention.

Squizzle (157) - Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2013
This is good beer out of the tap or bottle especially if its really cold. I’ve found that those of us who like it like it a lot and buy it all the time. Its good "take anywhere" micro brew.

elamericano (32) - Moscow, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Taste is smooth, simple, sweet and creamy, with a hint of espresso and reminiscence of vaguely fruity caramel. Worth sessioning.

toml219 (209) - California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Appearance- Golden amber, with a clean white head. Head disappeared rather quickly. Aroma- Light malty smell with a fruity citrus undertone. T/P- Nice clean taste a bit fruity on first taste, has a bit of a hoppy slightly bitter aftertaste, but by no means harsh Overall- Very drinkable, can have several and not get tired of them. Better on warmer days
