Not impressed, just an average rating. Appearance is bland, with little head on amber body Aroma is light malt, taste is malt and some caramel. This is on the 1001 Beers to Try list, but can’t figure out why.... gyllenbock (9177) - 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.

12oz bottle. bread and carmel, not much happening. beery, but not real beer. c’st la vie rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. Fairly generic amber ale. Smooth and well balanced though. mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2013
A bit of bready malt in the nose, with some vaguely tart fruity character, accompanied by a balanced, freshly herbal hop presence. The taste has a somewhat biscuity flavor up front with some caramel sweetness. Surprisingly tart in the end, although not over the top. Hop bitterness is middle-of-the-road, with a balanced fruity and herbal flavor. Not bad.

Light caramel sweetness detected, not much of hoppiness. Quite disappointingly bland, but nothing offensive here either. Preferable to bulk lagers any day. rickyleepotts (100) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2013
This beer smells incredible, but does not taste like it smells. It has a nice caramel aroma to it, but is way too carbonated and has a quick drying finish. Those same caramel notes come rushing back when you swallow... but they are dry and weak. This is a good beer for someone that doesn’t know what craft beer is. Plus, I love the label. The dog is adorable! I am glad that this is on our 1001 Bottles list, but I wouldn’t order it again. Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2013
A finger and a half of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is milled grain, hay and orange. NIce.
The flavor is smooth with a mild malt sweet and mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
It’s tasty and sessionable. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2013
On tap @ Wingers, Elko, NV. Pours a clear medium amber w/ minimal head. Not too much taste to speak of, some malt, but fairly watery and bland. Goes down like a light beer, but surprisingly has a decent aftertaste. ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle: 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.
