Bottle. Slightly yeasty nose. Nice clear golden colour. Taste is initially great - like a very high quality lager in a lot of ways - it doesnít really develop into anything though, and the nicely bitter finish is refreshing and drinkeable, but uninspired. A good session ale I would imagine, but nothing to write home about. Oh, and a faint astringency comes through about halfway through the bottle that doesnít help its cause any.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2005
From tap @ Kantjil & de Tijger in Amsterdam. Nice brown ale in a tulip glass - large head, nice malty flavour. Unfortunately served too cold, so the aroma was missing.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 New rating:
0.33l bottle, Palm Speciale, shared with and courtesy of heavy (thanks!)
The 3.6 seemed a bit high so I decided to try it again from heavyís bottle, just to remind myself how it tasted. And was shocked... nowhere even close. Sweet malty nose, some yeast, caramel... blah. Weak, lemony taste. Some weak caramel malt, weak hop, stale yeastiness... watery. Some radlerish qualities. Iím positive that it was better before. Not the worst beer around but very unimpressive. It mightíve been an off bottle and Iíll rerate it... contains propylene glycol alginate (emulsifier/stabilizer/thickener) and potassium metabisulfite (not one of the nicer preservatives around). Why? 5/4/4/1/9.

Old rating:
Found in a great shop in Split today. 0.33l bottle, Palm Export. Pours a beautiful light shade of brown / dark amber maybe, and a small thick creamy head that never dissipates extremely slowly. The nose is quite fruity, but I really canít think of which fruit (itís on the tip of my tongue...), maybe slightly sourish. Good so far. The taste is nice enough, but not really "aleish", more like some full tasting lager. Itís quite well made though, subtle malty, fruity and creamy flavors, with some subtle bitterness in the finish and the aftertaste. I like it, not flashy, but far from offensive, and quite refreshing. 7/4/7/3/15 (3.6)

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2006 Copper colour, very thick head, lasting. Fruity aroma, very smooth malty taste, with pleasant bitterness at the end. Very creamy, full bodied, maybe slightly too heavily carbonated. Good

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Tap. Pours deep amber with a good wite head, subsiding slowly. Sweet floral notes. Easy drinking and slightly sweet. Finishes long with bitter hop notes. A great everyday drinker.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2005
Dark amber. Malty, sweet, hoppy. Smells and tastes like sweeter English ale with caramel malt and fresher palate.

vanvenlo (1468) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2005
3 June 2005 - (Hotel Montana) - Some complex earthy malt aromas. Clear brown-red-orange colour with good suds lacing. Sweet hop malt flavour although too simple (easy drinking).Thickish mouthfeel, but sweet malt hops die away quickly.
