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.

Under the name Palm Amber at the local beer bar. A nice, easy drinking, session-type of beer, which is a good alternative to a german pilsner. The same skunk type of flavor, but with a fair amount of malt to balance it out. Very little, almost no, hop flavor. Don’t seek this out if you’re looking for big, bold flavors; rather, seek it out if you want an esy drinking, moderate alcohol content beer to enjoy over the night.

A nice refreshing amber. Enjoying this one with Rolfie, ArmEd, and Tommy Waves at the first barbecue of the season. Aroma is malty/yeasty, taste has a little bit of hoppiness and malty sweetness. Color is very light copper, flavor is a little bit on the watery side, somewhat mass produced. Decent beer overall.

piscator34 (2284) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
On draft at Esplanade Bier Markt. Light amber in colour with medium carbonation. Subtle aromas of mild orchard fruit, bready malt, and icing sugar. Dry and refreshing in the mouth, with a suggestion of fruity Belgian yeast and a bready finish. Quite drinkable. Surprisingly good.

DocLock (9494) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle from Ron’s. Dark straw copper pour with white head. Hopcitrus, pale malt nose and taste, with no off tastes or aromas, and late caramel, but not anything great. I question any rating above 2 for this, unless I got a bad bottle, which I find highly unlikely.

Bottle. Not much to say about this one. Aromas and flavors were more along the lines of a Belgium Bud. Drain pour.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2009
UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 On Tap. Pours a deeper golden amber, slight medium white head. A mild aroma and flavor. No huge distinctive notes in palate or flavor.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2009
I think this is what I had tonight...but I;m not really sure. Pour was medium amber with a nice head. Aroma is malty with little Belgian character. Flavor was mild and sweet, with not much else going on.

Two drafts with dinner yesterday at my local. This may be the softest all around ale I’ve ever had. Creamy white head settles convincingly to film. Some pleasant light skunkiness in the nose. First touch to the tounge reveals a light creamy body that is well tones and balanced. Someone in Belgium is still waving hops outside the brewery walls to slightly enhanse this balanced malty critter. I say it is under-rated at present. Finish is jsut as even and smooth. Thanks Rich for a nice selection for the rotating tap.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2009
330ml Bottle: Aroma of lager yeast, malts, corn, and light grassiness. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Fair lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of caramel malts, yeast, slight caramel, and a little grass. Light body. Thinish, tingly, ever so slightly dry texture. Crisp. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, and yeast finish is slightly dry and crisp.

11.2 oz bottle. Pretty amber pour with a nice white head. Nose is sweet caramel and some odd esters. Mild flavor, caramel and some bread. Kinda disappointing.
