Widmer Drop Top Amber Ale


Type: amber ale
Origin: Portland, Oregon
Price: $13.99 per variety 12 pack
Website

Amber ales are generally not a favorite of mine, but this one truly speaks to me. Most ambers have a decent malt content, but also a bit of a dirtiness. This one has a perfect crispness imparted from a good blend of hops. The malts are still there, but it is not the centerpiece of this beer. These Widmer Brothers truly know what they are doing. Now I just need to find their other beers. Perhaps a trip to Portland?
