New Holland Red Tulip Ale

Purchased as a single at Sam’s Blue Light in Durham, NC on a recent jaunt up the East Coast.
12oz bottle, poured into the Duvel tulip.
Initial nice head that fades to give a little head on the surface, but not much lace. Standard, solid copper color in the body with little else to report. Carbonation seems appropriate.
Nose and tastes have some really solid malts. Not much hop presesnce, so this sits at the “English” end of the “Red/Amber/Bitter” spectrum. Very easy drinking and some biscuit character. A tiny liquor presence in the nose too.
Smooth mouthfeel with a dry (but NOT typically harsh) finish. Nice brew.
