3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle of 250 ml, bought in the Netherlands.
Very deep golden yellow/light orange colour with one finger head with good retention and light lacing. Minimal activity in the glass.
Fruity aroma of watermelon (?) and a bit of apricot. Some caramel too.
Taste is only slighty fruity but bitter and hoppy.
Medium thick on the body, quite carbonated.
I could see myself buying it every now and then if it wasn’t for the small bottle, I am used to at least 300 ml of content.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle back at base camp, Utrecht. The pour’s deep gold with a small head. The aroma’s of cardboard and honeyed grain, some candy corn. The taste is general sweet grain and herbal hoppiness. Not much depth of flavor. Hints of pissy grass. The body’s light. Overall, pretty mediocre fare.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. Light golden colour, minimal white head, lots of carbonation. Aromas of grassy hops. Taste is watery in the beginning, after that there’s some hop bitterness. Finish is lightbitter and refreshing citrus. Short finish. Light body.
Nice beer, balanced flavour, but no better then the original palm. Misses some herbes and character.
