3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice amber looks with foamy head. Good in autumn and winter. Tastes a little too smooth and malt. Lacks a bit of character

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy deep amber color with a small white head. The taste is sweet but rather soapy and unpleasant. Has some fruity notes and finishes with some hoppy notes.

My bottle says Palm Export and is 5.2%, but as so many have rated under this beer I do so too. Has probably been discussed before. It had a good head, but the aroma was dry and the flavour had a cardboard (oxidised) character. Bit of a dissappointment for an amber Belgian beer. Lots of caramel malts, though.

Bottled, at the Dovetail, London.
5.2% version. Amber with a foaming white head, dissipating. Washed out malts with dulled bitterness lingering around in the back somewhere.

First I think of a really strong beer where they are trying to hide the alcohol behind sweet flavors, but it is not very strong – quite normal. Like a bland lager that somebody added a bit of syrup to. Inspite of that – not too bad. I could have another one.

Amber color, nice head, fizzy. Nice sweet malty aroma. Taste is smooth, pithy and malty sweet. Light bitter aftertaste. Not a really highlight but although not bad. All in all quite overall.

Didn’t really like this. Not that complex and far too watery for my taste. If I see this again I think i’ll pass.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 5,2 %.
Amber colur, poor head. Grassy and fruity aroma. Rich in malts and fruity flavour with notes of toffee. The carbonation is a bit disturbing. An ordinary beer.
