Pours amber orange with a fizzy off white head that dissipates quickly to almost nothing.

Pretty subdued nose and palate, but consists of grassy hops, and sweet malts.

Medium body, fairly low carbonation.

A bit disappointing overall. Very simple, boring flavors with low carbonation.

Appearance - Pours a semi-clear bright amber orange with a half finger head, poor retention and spotty lacing.

Smell - Faint caramel notes and a touch of must.

Taste - Surprisingly deep, flavorful caramel malts upfront, with subtle notes of toffee. Citrus and floral hop characters wave by at a distance. Notes of honey and butter around the edges. Finishes as it starts, and fades quickly.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Carbonated deceivingly well with a sharp bite and a smooth trip down the esophagus. Somewhat creamy.

Overall - A good amber. The lack of any real hop presence can cause this beer to get a bit rich after a few, but I always look forward to drinking at least the first one.

Poured a amber colored body and a small head. Lacing settles to a cloud in the middle quite fast. Not much to talk about on the smell.. floral, some hops, honey and some lemon zest. Some juicy fruit picked up by the palate. Hint of biscuit, spices, and orange peel. Semi watery mouthfeel and a dry finish. Easy to drink and would probably kick back a few with no problem.

This beer pours a clear gold with no head or lace. A bit pale for an amber. It's aroma is of bread, cake, and caramel. The flavor leads with pine and toffee with molasses in the finish as it warms. The mouthfeel is light-medium and smooth. Widmer Drop Top is a good brew, well balanced and drinkable. Recommended!
