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 (852) - 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...

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of grassy floral notes over bready grain, taste follows, clean and easy. A solid, crisp pilsner.

josanguapo (1106) - SPAIN - APR 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 From Carrefour. In Teku glass. After dinner. Very balanced and drinkable. Reminds me what it was my favourite german pilsener until now, the weltenburger one. Now both brews share that position.

PapaCanard (77) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Belle bière blond claire qui fait peu de mousse, cette Lager à l’étiquette so(m)bre a un agréable goût de houblon et de fleurs. Légère et conviviale.

bonkiedeaap (634) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is pale golden colored and has a stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty, with fruity notes like citrus, grass and some yeast. The taste is soft, light sweet and with a light bitter aftertaste in which notes from the aroma are well noticable. The finish is light dry, malty and light bitter.
