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.

ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - DEC 11, 2013
FROM NOTES: October 21, ’13. A: Mostly grain notes with some floral notes and a hint of sulfur. A: Pours a clean yellow color with a white head. T: Like the nose this has a very smooth grainy taste initially with faint apple and white grape flavors. Has a bit of a funk to it but finishes with a spicy and sweet mix. P: Light bodied and extremely crisp on the palate. Tingly and bubbly. O: A decent pils AT BEST.

thanatosti (1187) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ Geofort, Herwijnen. Pale yellow with a white head. Grainy aroma with some faint hops. Taste is bittersweet, as a pilsener should be. Nice enough pilsener, which can’t be said of most other Belgian ones.

ROSE1962 (105) - POLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Barwa jasna, piana biała, szybko się rozrywa i opada. W aromacie tylko lekkie nuty słodowe. W smaku klasyczny lager, głównie słodowe i troszkę goryczki.

mjs (5372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2015
(Bottle, 0.25 l - BB 23.07.15, thanks FatPhil, 20150721) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness and a hint of grain. Palate was medium bodied with stinging carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, berries, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A weird and not good brew.
