In 2011, 796 beers were entered for the Brewing Industry International Awards 2011, which were held in England. A renowned jury, consisting of experts from the brewing world, awarded ESTAMINET Premium Pils the highest score in the ‘Lager’ category. This gold medal, which is seen as an ‘Oscar’ within the beer world, is an important recognition and victory for PALM Breweries. The awards and medals will be presented during a gala event on 12 April at the prestigious Guildhall in London. ESTAMINET owes its premium quality (5.2% vol/alc) to the selection of the best natural ingredients: soft water, 100% high quality summer barley, a distinctive yeast and very precious Saaz hops. Slow, traditional bottom fermentation, a brewing process based on an original recipe and maturation for a full six weeks make ESTAMINET a true Belgian Premium Pils.

Dacrza (494) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 15, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: just returned from watching LVR’s production of All My Sons--legs were broken... APPEARANCE: tawny, straw-golden body--comes across rather faded--with effervescence of various pacing; head is snow white and lacing nicely, like frost on a winter window... AROMA: the punch of Saaz front row and center; bananas and some off-putting wet rag as well...PALATE: soft, light-bodied and swift in its descent; active and bubbly on the tongue, inviting flirtation...TASTE: immediate complex esters arrest the teeth--apple and pear, most notably--while subtle malts work the throat with a woody, pulpish effect; floral, almost perfumy experience, a beer that dances lightly on its feet, yet it finishes with some grainy/rice aftertaste ...OVERALL: as one of the four self-touted "Great Beers of Belgium,," this pilsner has some product potential--over two hundred fifty years of brewing, black and gold foil necktie, a nicely drinkable flow--and delivers with a delicately complex pilsner worthy of a second look...

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a crystal clear pale yellow-gold color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, bready, grassy and sweet with a hint of lemon. The flavor was very sweet and tangy artificial grape. Long sweet artificial grape finish. Light body. Not good.

StoutOrDeath (121) - USA - JUL 11, 2014
Got this on sale at the local ghetto mart for $2.99 a 6. Wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. I would call it the poor man’s Warsteiner. Hope it stays on sale, because it’s fantastic at that price.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2014
Tomada como brabante lager en junio de 2011. lote 06. Sin mucho que decir de esta lager normal y con sabores que podrían refinarse un poco mas. Bastante refrescante y fácil de beber con un cuerpo ligero de 5.2 vol.

RRistow12 (230) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow with white head that fades quickly. Sweet aroma of grass, grains, corn, bread, and a little fruity. Taste is pretty sweet with a floral and fruity notes. Some hay and grain flavors. No detectable bitterness. Light bodied with a sharp and crisp mouthfeel. Great for a hot thirsty day. Slightly above average pilsner. Much better than any macro lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mmmbeer (1235) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle served in shaker (from the infamous HEB- Braker and 183 collection)- poured a transparent very light yellow color, medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of wheat, dust, and a few hops here and there. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is refreshing, middle has a crisp feel, finish is sharp, crisp, and slightly drying. Hank Williams came on writing this- perfect timing.

Fruity and homely aroma. A little bit woody. Fizzy with a touch if cloudiness. Woody tasting. Quite pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
