COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
PALM Ale has long been one of Europe’s top-selling specialty beers. Made with English hops, French Barley, and Belgian yeast, PALM represents the best of European beer-making traditions. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. Also available bottle-conditioned as Palm Hergist.
Sold as Palm outside of Europe.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle from BC Liquor Store. Pale amber body. Odd grassy aroma, not quite skunky hint to it. Bit malty, dilute flavour. Blah. Average palate. Disappointing.

TrefwoordPunk (816) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2007
Can 33 cl. Amber colored with a fest-fading head. The beer has a nice malty taste with a nice bitter aftertaste. Not a very special beer but above average for sure!

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Maybe not Belgium’s most complex beer, but a darn good one when you consider the style. golden, with a crisp white head. Smooth mix of rich malt and spice out of proportion to its ABV. Crisp slightly spicy finish. a lot of punch packed into this small beer.

shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2007
9/23/2007: Palm Speciale pours a clear amber color with an off-white head and a mild amount of carbonation. It has a soft, sweet malty flavor that has undertones of toffee and roasted malt. It has a very smooth texture. This is a great beer for that I could see myself drinking any day, any time, any place. It has a nice color, isn’t too sweet, not to bitter, and a decent body without being too heavy or too light.

highlandlad (1417) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2007
Disappointing and undistinguished Belgian ale. Clear bronze with a fat pillowy head. Peppery aroma with some dusty attic, ginger beer and Rumtopf. Medium-bodied and syrupy with a disappointingly abrupt finish - where’ditgo??? Oversweet and malty, with toffee dominant over diluted tropical fruit juice. Some English bitter-like characteristics, but not the good ones. Too thin and sweet to be sessionable, yet not robust enough to work as a sipper. Found it a struggle to drink in the end. (33cl bottle. BB 4/10/07)

Wobbler (46) - IRELAND - SEP 6, 2007
A delicious rather full tasting ale. Nothing amazing about it but (in my opinion at least) it makes a pleasant change from the huge beers available in Belgium. Quite like an English bitter (though more malt heavy)

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
Pours a clear gold with a small egg-white head with some lacing. Wonderful sweet & spicy aroma. Taste is not so exciting - corn, sweet malt, lagerish. Slightly-off hop aftertaste, thankfully lasts a split second. Carbonation is good but the body is thin. This stuff must be to Belgians like Kokanee is to Canadians. Pure swill.

Enjoyit (3470) - Vadum, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2007
Hazy amber of color with a beige head. An aroma of hops, malt and barn. A flavor of lemon, notes of sweets and malt.

scanovajr (627) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2007
Redish amber coloured with a medium sized head. Aroma is malty and toffee. Notes of dry fruits. Taste is caramel and malt. Some bitterness in the end
