Sweet malts, oily body, clear orange color, ends lightly sweet. Nothing to see here people, just another pale lager.

duvel tulip glass: dark amber body. off-white head. it’s a malty and uneventful lager. a bit sweet and a bit smooth. it’s okay. it’s something to wash down the greasy american food we all love.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, can, draught. Pours with a decent head and amber color. Nose is a solid strong malt smell. This one has a slight straw taste that fades into slight sweet malt. Nice carb and light body. Certainly a quaffable brew.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark copper colored. No head. Bland straw aroma. Slightly sweet hay/straw flavor. Aftertaste is metallic (copper). Thin and watery with absolutely no complexity. The old-world label tricked me into buying this.

This beer isn't bad. Pours dark straw/amber with some malt aroma. Finishes fairly smooth and crisp. I would drink this again.

First time trying this beer. Not to much taste. Medium dark. Good buy though for about 16 bucks.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a nice amber color with a small head and lots of carbonation. Very slight earthy aroma with a hint of malt underneath it. Malty flavor that quickly fades to a slightly sweet taste with no aftertaste whatsoever. Pretty watery mouthfeel however.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber color with a modest head that fades to a lid of cream colored bubbles. Faint nut and grass aroma. Very little to this one. Colored water with a hint of malt.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a transparent coppery orange color with a quickly dissipating 1.0 cm white head. Nose is very light--maybe some malts in there. Start is pretty malty, with some sweetness in the middle. Finish is rather watery without an aftertaste. Could use some hops to balance out the malts. Could also stand for some body and some aroma.

A typical PA lager in the tradition of Yuengling (perhaps not quite as good, but close). Looks o.k. in the glass, smells o.k., tastes decent. Nothing spectacular, but I'd drink it again. Extra points for the "Union Made" sign on the label.
