Amber ale with a nice thin moka head. Sweet caramel aroma with oxidation notes. Nice restrained sweet malt with faint nuttyness and light hops. Medium bodied and oily mouthfeel. Not bad.

This is a simple but tasty brew. It pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet, toasty malt with some floral/herbal/earthy hop scents. These carry through into the flavor, with the addition of yeasaty, citric tastes, particularly orange. It’s got a refreshing, snappy hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Sadly, it’s not very available in the Chicago area.

I liked this one a lot! It was everywhere in Amsterdam too, which was good. Red color with a soda-like fizziness. I liked the color a lot. I think all beers should look like this.

On tap at the Vermont Restaurant at the Holiday Inn Amsterdam ("eat, drink, and be Vermont" - in the Netherlands? WTF?). Amber color with a slight fizzy mouthfeel. Malty and pretty ok. Nothing really special, but at the same time, oddly drinkable. When I went to bars in the Netherlands and there weren’t any new beers for me to try, I’d order this.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) For my first "Palm" years ago I remember saying that it’s taste was pretty close to a brewery’s smell. But that was something to appreciate. Nice amber colour, the head disappears a bit fast for my liking. Yeasty, malty nose and some caramel notes well balanced with the hops. Very high drinkability. 060693
