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.

Bottle. Head was average to large with a fizzy off-white color. It lasted reasonable long. Good lacing found in glass. Body was cloudy with some particles. Color was light muddy brown. Aroma was yeasty (sweat, barnyard, leather), with other notes being perfume, citrus, grain, caramel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavor was light bitter-sweet which was ok balanced I thought. Short to average duration of finish. Very drinkable.

25cL bottle. Deep amber color, with very mellow aroma and taste. My favorite "everyday" Belgian beer. Can easily sit at the pub and drink a few.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2007
On Draught. Red - amber hue, big head, strong lacing. Carbonated sparkle on the tongue. Lots of citrus fruit, malt, hops. Very zingy and fresh. Really liked it, good session beer I’d imagine.

nothing exceptional about this beer, i keep thinking it’s a lager. Is smooth and easy to drink, other than that, tastes like a slightly weak English Ale

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2007
Palm Hergist, 75 cl bottle, ’bbe’ May 07. Dark amber with a faint haze; a rich yet not lasting white froth. Dry, malty aroma with a light fruity note and a touch reminiscent of a mixture of old caramel and dishwater (I thought the glass was clean :-)). Malty, drier than non-bottle fermented Palm; less hop character, too. Timid body.

Caramel, toasted malts, hoppy, good fruitiness, bit yeasty. A really soft tasty amber coloured beer

WeeHeavySD (3380) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Beer 31 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/4/06 in the can on the train from Brussels to Amsterdamn. At the time I thought that is was potentially the last belgian beer I would have for a long time while still officially being in Belgium. Poured with a huge frothy head from a green can. Not a bad brew but not great, hard to justify the three stars given in Tim Webb’s "Bible"

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2006
Amber body with a half decent head. Initially caramel notes in the aroma and the taste that fades away, smooth, almost medium body, probably a good session beer.

Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2006 on 18/11/06 - Always a favourite Belgian beer of mine. Deliciously smooth and sweet - makes a change and cleanses ones palate whence in the middle of a Belgian beer drinking session where all the other beers are ones of the head-fuck variety!
