2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 I think this is the type of Palm I had on tap. A nice pour, but the beer was a little disappointing. A watery dark brew with some sweetness. I also tried a bottle of something called Palm Belgian Amber. This was also a good looker, with a plush head and nice lacing on the glass. The flavor was acceptable. Mostly dry, with a little malty, molasses sweetness. Not bad, but I expect better from Belgium.

on tap at Dive 96. Clear amber with nice dense white head. Caramel sweet aroma. Little carbonation gave full feel on the tongue. Malty and toasty flavor. As an amber, didn’t expect more than basic drinkability.
