3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft@ Sunset Grill. Tulip shows a mostly clear yellow color. I will first star by saying I believe this is a much better product in Europe. By the time kegs or bottle get here they may have sat for a significant amount of time. I believe this may have sat because the nose and flavor was muted and unimpressive. Aroma is mostly yeast with some light lemon notes. Flavor is weak spice with yeast and a light dustiness and some lemon. Light body and easy to drink but… just boring.
