The bar I frequently drink at got this in the other week. I'm a big fan of ales so I had to try it. I was nothing short of impressed.

It pours amber in color and has a great aroma to it. Definitely a carmel and honey smell to it. Had a very nice head.

The flavor was one of the best I've had in a long time. I would definitely buy again if I can find it.

Appearance - Nothing special here.
Smell - Sweet, mellow hop bouquet.
Taste - Good light hefe flavors mix with a very well balanced hint of lemon to end a near ephemeral earthy wheat aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - A little foamy but otherwise the normal filling, effervescent style of an Amber you'd expect.
Overall - A well put together beer. Nothing fancy, but a microbrew deserving of the few extra bucks at the store.

Widmer Brothers Drop Top Amber Ale has a thin, cream-colored head, and a mostly clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with some thin lacing left down the glass. The aroma is mainly bready malt, but some citrus and hops are detected with a deep inhalation. Taste is almost all Orange Julius, with some hop spice at the end and faint breadiness. The mouthfeel has a fluffy ale body, and Widmer Brothers Drop Top Amber Ale finishes mostly dry, easy-drinking, and delicious. There is a definite piney aftertaste. Overall, I really enjoyed this one, and I rate it highly.

Very solid beer. Has sort of a strange mouthfeel but I'd buy it again. The smell was fantastic. Smells like a beer ought to smell. Feels a bit lighter than it really is. Works well with Mexican food, which frankly is one of my biggest concerns of ANY beer.

Very fine beer from a good brewery.

It seems like this one is somewhat polarizing, and I can't figure out why. It's flavorful, balanced, not too bitter, not too creamy. I have no complaints. All around nice beer, and my favorite of Widmer's.

Very quaff-able for an amber

A- Pale brown-orange color with transparent body. I guess you could call it amber. Weak head but I might not have poured it well. Got a better head on my 2nd pour with retention and lacing

S- Smell is earthy and toasty with a hint of caramel and maybe some floral hops

T- I would like more hops, but it is typical of amber ales to have a shy hop profile. Mostly malts described in the smell along with slightly metallic flavor brought out by the carbonation

M- Very smooth and crisp carbonation with a medium, coating body

D- Drinkable. Don't question it
