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.

I first had this beer at a Widmer tailgate party at the U of Oregon spring football game, and I must say that I was impressed. Its obviously not going to be a perfect ten, but for a tailgater, a BBQ, anytime with good, greasy food. A bit spendy, but Oregon beer has a reputation that allows the price.

Bottle. I agree with Lumpy in that it has an "iced tea" body. It has a delightful, easy to drink, flavor that is smooth, and a bit citris. It is very sweet, and is a very approachable Amber Ale. Great beer!

Trying this one once was enough for me...I definitely wont be trying it again. It was very underwhelming...just kind of blah...like if you took a well made amber ale and diluted it with a bit of water. There was some nice flavors somewhere in there, but they didnt make themselves known. Not a fan. K- 2.1/5 S-2.3/5

Taste is smooth, simple, sweet and creamy, with a hint of espresso and reminiscence of vaguely fruity caramel. Worth sessioning.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off-white head that fades and leaves very little lace. The aroma is mild malt with some leafy hops in the nose as well. The flavor is light with a refreshing tang. Not bad as a basic beer but not really notable.

Nice light copper color with thick yellow head. Tons of bubbles. Cant make out much in the nose. Sort of metallic smelling, not much hop aroma. The taste is pretty disappointing. Bitter throughout, but not very complex. Its more like a cheap lager in taste than an ale. Bubbly mouth-feel. I imagine it could be a nice light summer beer, but nothing more. Next!

Very drinkable beer. Had from in a glass from the traditional brown widmer bottle. Very pleasant flavor with almost wheaty overtones. Has a nose of citrus. Nice to sit down to on a hot afternoon. Don't drink it if you are in a complicated mood.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber with an average-sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus and green apple apple. Flavor of malt, cider and mild hops with buttereryness in the finish.
