3.05/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12oz : tulip

Clear, coppery orange with a foamy off white head, decent lacing.

Light citric hops backed by caramel, biscuit malts in both the nose and taste.

Medium body, mild foamy carbonation.

I rated this fairly average across the board, because that is what it is. Easy drinking, unoffensive, but also fairly forgettable in this wide world of beers we live in.

Serving type: bottle
