Ellicottville Pantious Droppus
One of the other beers I tried at Ellicottville Brewing Company on the way to Niagara Falls was the Pantious Droppus (great name). The beer pours a red amber color with a thin foamy off-white head. The aroma consists of sweet malts, orange, and light pine hops. The taste is rounded and smooth with lots of malts up front and a good amount of caramel mixed in. The finish dries out with pine hops and an orange accent. The alcohol content is 10.6% ABV. The Pantious Droppus was really a delicious imperial pale ale with plenty of sweet and smooth flavors but dries out the mouth in the end.
