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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 500ml, bottled in Poland. Light brown cola-colour, live with bubbles floating up a long time after pouring. The head is long and sits on the sides of the glass. Faint aromas of sth. sweet, berries, sugar? Quick attack in the flavor, sparkling hops and yeast. Long finish. No too good, better than an average lager but absolutely nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap - Kantij, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Reminiscent of a better Yuengling lager. Clean aroma, a little ’cheese sharpness’ to the flavor, no metallic flavor, a little ’bottom yeast/corn’ flavor still. PRetty and reddish-amber. I thought it was a lager though, not a belgian ale, so I’m docking it a few points for being a weak belgian ale rather than an above average lager...
