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.

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."

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2006
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!

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Capones. 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.

DuffMan (9747) - 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. Its 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.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - 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. Whats the point?

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.
