COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A creamy, flavorful Amber thats 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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 clear, thin head, and smells like dead rotting fruity puke with a side order of death...tastes like moldy cardboard and old mangoes. Im confused as to what the point of this beer is.

Staind oak color,minimal head. Smells like i puked, but the majority of the puke was beer and potatoe chips. Didnt taste much better, and im surprised at the high rating.

Golden body and weak, ephemeral white head. Cheesy aroma with some wood as well. Inoffensive and typical flavor for an amber. Just seems weak. Body feel is also a little thin.

Medium copper clear appearance. Malty syrup aroma and flavor, nothing exciting, but not bad. Sour apples in the finish.

The beer looks pretty good..nothing spectacular but still invitng. Its a very light brown..almost burnished brass colour with a small head , which soon fades to a good sized lace. Smell is muted yet i do pick up on a little malt..thats about it..average aroma. For such a weak aroma the taste is actually quite nice..nice maltry taste right at the start but as it reaches the back of the tongue a nice hop bitterness takes over..very balanced. Fells pretty nice in the mouth , the carbonation is not too high just right. Overall a drinkable amber..but with the market so saturated with these I doubt i will find a reason to return to this.

While not a fan of Widmer beers, this had a clean, refreshing caramelly flavor that you come to expect from a good amber.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2003
This is a good amber. It pours a nice thick offwhite head. It has a lighter amber color. It has a smooth carmel flavor that is very pleasant.

jazz88 (2674) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Tap @ Old Pro. Amber color with an off-white head head. Smooth butterscotch and light malt flavor. Not much aroma, but it was an identifiable amber ale. I was surprised at how easy drinkin' this beer was.

Misty Amber appearance with a decent sized head, sweet caramel malt aroma. Not a bad example of the style, probably redundant to call it drinkable. Nothing real distinctive here, it falls in the middle of the beer spectrum for me - would not turn one down but I'm not seeking it out either.

No, not as bad as people say. Not exceptional, but when drinking it at the brewery, especially with late night $7 pitchers, there's nothing better to get yourself pounded on. A good beer that goes down smooth. When you don't want to think about all the high and low points of a beer and just drink one, grab a pint of this...
