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.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle 30cl. Poured a deep red amber, with a small wispy white head. Oaky malt aroma, with hints of fruit, though faint. Quite a rich flavour of oaky malt, hints of sweetness, very tasty despite the bitterness in the finish being a little watery. Thick palate, low carbonation. Decent tasty beer, good for sessions.

Skinnyviking (7317) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing head. Clear dark amber body. Weak malt aroma (domated by the smoking gentlement at the bar). Dry flavor with some spice I cannot figure out. Noney caramel.

Oxidized cardboard and not much else. My wife bought this is in British Columbia for me. page 350 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 301 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

A step above Palm Dobble. Worth a try as it has a darker appearance than the Dobble. It is equally as smooth with some additional use of hops for a unique belgian flavor.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle. Head was average to large with a fizzy off-white color. It lasted reasonable long. Good lacing found in glass. Body was cloudy with some particles. Color was light muddy brown. Aroma was yeasty (sweat, barnyard, leather), with other notes being perfume, citrus, grain, caramel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavor was light bitter-sweet which was ok balanced I thought. Short to average duration of finish. Very drinkable.

BelgianBeerGal (3255) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2007
25cL bottle. Deep amber color, with very mellow aroma and taste. My favorite "everyday" Belgian beer. Can easily sit at the pub and drink a few.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2007
On Draught. Red - amber hue, big head, strong lacing. Carbonated sparkle on the tongue. Lots of citrus fruit, malt, hops. Very zingy and fresh. Really liked it, good session beer I’d imagine.

nothing exceptional about this beer, i keep thinking it’s a lager. Is smooth and easy to drink, other than that, tastes like a slightly weak English Ale

schuimkroaat (424) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2007
Palm Hergist, 75 cl bottle, ’bbe’ May 07. Dark amber with a faint haze; a rich yet not lasting white froth. Dry, malty aroma with a light fruity note and a touch reminiscent of a mixture of old caramel and dishwater (I thought the glass was clean :-)). Malty, drier than non-bottle fermented Palm; less hop character, too. Timid body.
