Drop Top Amber Ale (Widmer)

Drop Top Amber Ale (Widmer)

Ratebeer 2.8 28th percentile
Beer Advocate B-

Taste +2

Nose is a little flat; pecans, mixed nuts and vanilla malt. Taste is just like the nose; light roasted malt with vanilla and cloves. There is nice balance with a understated hop bitterness. The mouthfeel has a creaminess about it.

Aftertaste +1

After the malt fades off, the hop bitterness coats the upper palate but does not overpower.

Alcohol Content -1 4.85%

Value +1

This came in the variety pack; $22 for 24 bottles from Costco. This was a great deal for the quality of beer.

Ingame Enchantment 0

Nope, sat in hot tub and drank the day away.
Overall 3/10

I'm usually not a fan of this style, but I liked it.
