COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Not a good beer. All around not good. Would mostly like anything else but this. Not much else to say.

Hamirubi (165) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2015
25cl bottle. A premium pils from Belgium, although it is a common lager. Golden colour, traditional rocky head, hoppy aroma, malty taste, high in carbon, citruslike bitterness. A good lager from Palm.

I was promised wild things about this beer, and while it certaintly isn’t a bad one, it isn’t ’special’ by any means.

KeefOz (1062) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2015
Tasted 25/3/15 at Trujillo, Spain. (labelled as Brabant Lager). BB 01/05/2015. Poured a crystal clear pale amber with a one-finger foamy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation moderate and coarse. Aroma of sweet malt and hints of corn; no obvious hops. Taste of sweet caramel with hint of vanilla as warms; no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp, refreshing. Average at best.

jaghana (4380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is is on dry malt and nuts. Aroma is low malty, thin body, dusty hops, medium bitterness, very boring. Finish is very industrial like.

Svesse (6734) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2015
(Draught at Engelbewaarder, Amsterdam, 1 March 2015) Pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, clean nose with notes of bread, cereal and hay. Malty taste with bread, grain, hay and a fairly low bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Middle-of-the-roadish pale euro lager, no faults, but quite boring. Drinkable.

ruigo (1410) - PORTUGAL - FEB 5, 2015
25cl bottle. Clear pale straw colour with a thin white head. Corny herbal aroma. Light watery body and average carbonation. Taste is... Overall, a normal pils.

thirstyrabbit (1304) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Aroma has some cabbage-like vegetal hints. Okay carbonation and mouthfeel. Sweet malty and bready taste. Slightly above average hoppiness for a pale lager but I don’t see this as a pilsner. It’s drinkable but lacks that hoppy crispness.
