Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2009
Beer looks very clean honey brown complete with a small off white cap that lasted a very long time due to the fact it was constantly replenished with columns of bubbles floating up to the top, very average looking brew but good enough for me. Mild skunkiness with dry wheat and just maybe a touch of hops in the aroma, after sniffing for a while Iím detecting something that I can only describe as a glass of milk what the hell this milk sent is intriguing me because I canít quit figure it out, fifteen minuets of smelling later the mike aroma is still there but I must move on. Very crisp clean taste nice and malty with a metallic hop presence, this is a very smooth beer to drink the malts are flavor full but still very light, and the light hops give this brew a very clean finish that left zero after taste. Wow this brew was freaking amazing I was expecting swill but ended up with a very fine imported beer, I usually hate European lager, pilsners and other lighter ales due to they all taste like crap but this one is awesome, or maybe it was the fact that I just ran 10k and would have thought cold piss was yummy. This is worth a try if you can get it review done while watching Seinfeld.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Tap at the Sugar Lounge: I almost forgot I had this a few months back, but I remember my mental rating pretty well. Amber pour with an off white thin head. Simple aroma of caramelized malt and light husk notes- pretty clean with only a touch of fruity esters. Light feel- malt driven flavor. Light caramel and toast with some nondescript fruitiness. Almost like an American Amber Ale minus hoppiness. Some diacetyl as well. I hope that many non-beer people donít have this as their first "Belgian Ale" as it will turn them off and give them a false representation.

roebuck (45) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2009
I saw numerous folk drinking this beer all over Belgium and the Netherlands. I figured Iíd try it. It was bottled and poured into a tulip. Brown in color. Some what like a Brown English Ale. Very little in flavor. I was expecting caramel from the color but really canít say I could pick anything out.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2009
Nose has malt, fruit and yeast, amber, fair sized white head. Taste is a strong alcohol/malt mix with some apple. Medium bodied, slightly harsh. Ordinary stuff.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2009
draft - Pours dark yellow and clear with a white head. The aroma is mainly pale malt. It tastes of sweet malt with very mild hops. This light bodied brew is rather lacking in flavor and unfortunately made me think underwhelming macrobrew.

PolishHammer (124) - Norwalk, Connecticut, USA - MAY 18, 2009
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. Donít seek this out if youíre looking for big, bold flavors; rather, seek it out if you want an esy drinking, moderate alcohol content beer to enjoy over the night.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2009
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 (2344) - 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 (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle from Ronís. 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.
