Drank from a can at home. Very smooth ale with a nice oakey flavor. Nice normal beer, available everywhere.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250ml bottle at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPlace.asp? target=blank>St. Veronus in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden-orange in colour, thin dissipating off-white head, no lacing. The aroma is of light spice, caramel and earthy malts. The flavour has a light caramel sweetness, earthy malts, some light spice. Thin mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes a bit watery with a light sweetness. Weak and light all-around.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap. Clear golden/red color. Almost no head. Low-medium carbonation. Not very interesting for a belgian ale.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank on draft. Beautiful reddish gold colour. Full body, satisfying taste. Not a "session beer" but more for drinking like a glass of wine, sip by sip. Not for getting drunk but for getting the taste. Excellent beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber/brown coloured brew. Aroma is a bit yeasty, but lacks of complex aroma. Thin, pilsener like taste. A bit watery even. Little bit bitter. Not too exciting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Amber colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of malts and hops. Pretty boring for a belgian beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 I stared in disbelief at the orange tinted beverage served to me, from draft, at Lowlander. The menu called it Palm Speciale, but my taste buds called it something quite different. Only slightly stronger than water with slightly less taste. I’d have saved £3 drinking from the bathroom tap. Perfect for people that don’t enjoy the taste of beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
25 cl bottle. Light brown and clear, with a thick and foamy tan head. Fruity aroma. Heavy malt flavor, with a mild hop bite. Lingering finish of malt, that sours. More than I expected from this beer. For a cheap beer, it beats many American macro beers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a top belgian ale. Copper brown, thin head, muted aromas of yeast and caramel. Flat palate of dusty caramel and faint fruit, quite thin.

Bottle. Golden orange colour with a small tan head. Malty, corny aroma and a light sweet, dry, fruity taste. Light body with a sweet finish.
