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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- One finger cream colored head. Mediocre retention. No lacing. Copper color, high clarity.

S- Floral, aromatic hops. Brown sugar. Some light grassiness.

T- Muted hops, coppery flavor with a slight bitterness at the end. Ultimately very standard for an Amber.

M- Aggressive carbonation, light feel with a syrupy finish on the lips.

O- Might be an alright session beer, but not very impressive.
