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.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Clear, light amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is a bit restrained, but I pick up suggestions of apricot and white pepper. Perfectly balanced flavor with toffee and gentle, spicy hops. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, clean finish. Thanks to kenb for the bottle!

Pours an amber color, nice looking beer. Mostly white head, decent size. Aroma is pretty nice with malts, hops, spice and maybe some sweet smelling notes. Flavor is malty but lacks some body and character. Not the worst, not even close to a top tier amber either.

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s. The pour is turbid dullish dark straw colored with about half an inch of clingy white head. Nose is malty, with mild honey and hops, some fruitiness. Tastes malty, with fruity apricotty notes, an overall semi-sweet palate, medium heft, not terribly complex. A decent sessionable beer, but not a world beater.

Tap. Amber pour, small white head. Malt and caramel on the nose. Taste was dry, nutty, slightly fruity. Not too bad.

DuffMan (10425) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
Had this at the french restaurant on the 10th floor of the Eiffel Tower restaurant in the Paris hotel & casino Las Vegas. It’s interesting to see that ratings for this brew seem to be all over the map! I had this with a few buddies, and we all agreed that it was terrific. Clear toffee-amber with aromas of butterscotch, apricot, and pepper. Delicious palate that more resembles an American pale than an amber in its complexity-- caramel malt with citrus and spice elements with subtle bitterness in the finish.

This amber ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and a floral aroma. The caramel malt flavor is a bit sweet with some subtle hopping at the finish.

JorisPPattyn (9982) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
Orange-copper beer with a little yellowish head. Nose is absent??? Sweetish, with a serious, but inoffensive malt bill. Bit burning MF, but certainly not to the point of aggressiveness. Yeah. What’s the point?
