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.

Pimgref (86) - Gorinchem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2004
Nice amber looks with foamy head. Good in autumn and winter. Tastes a little too smooth and malt. Lacks a bit of character

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.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2004
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.

Geiserich (3274) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 9, 2004
Bottled:
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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2004
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2004
(bottle, 5,2 % version) Pale amber with a rich bubbly white head. Malty aroma of grass, toffee and honey. Malty flavour of toffee and honey. Thin body. Carbonated and slightly toffeish finish.
