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.

haukur (1438) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 16, 2005
brown and almost no head, just little laces in the glass. Aroma is very weak, mostly malt and some grain. Taste is VERY carbonated, not much else to it ... forgetten after I finish the glass

TBone (14260) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2005
Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Copper brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has caramel, corn, skunked grassy hops and barnyard. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Malty with yeast sweetness. Some bitterness in the finish. Quite uninteresting Belgium.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottle. Thanks to gonzobeer. Light clear brown color with no head at all. Corn aroma. Taste of malt caramel. Watery texture. Very thin for a belgian ale, not much taste. Bière d’un brun clair et pale avec aucun collet. Gout de malt caramel avec une texture acqueuse. Manque de corps et de gout, très ordinaire.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2005
a sim rate: (on tap) It smells deliciously of coconut and marshmallow. And yup.. they’re both in the flavour too. There’s such a gorgeous creaminess about this beer. I remember having it on tap in Belgium the first time I ever went and I loved it just as much then. Much better on tap than in bottles. Short finish. Ale and cream - smell and flavour. This rate would not be nearly as high for the bottled version.

Lubiere (11228) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2005
Amber ale with a nice thin moka head. Sweet caramel aroma with oxidation notes. Nice restrained sweet malt with faint nuttyness and light hops. Medium bodied and oily mouthfeel. Not bad.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2005
This is a simple but tasty brew. It pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet, toasty malt with some floral/herbal/earthy hop scents. These carry through into the flavor, with the addition of yeasaty, citric tastes, particularly orange. It’s got a refreshing, snappy hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Sadly, it’s not very available in the Chicago area.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2005
I liked this one a lot! It was everywhere in Amsterdam too, which was good. Red color with a soda-like fizziness. I liked the color a lot. I think all beers should look like this.

Bottle. Nice copper colour. Small white head. Easy to drink beer. There are much better belgian beers but for that price.... Just OK.

On tap at the Vermont Restaurant at the Holiday Inn Amsterdam ("eat, drink, and be Vermont" - in the Netherlands? WTF?). Amber color with a slight fizzy mouthfeel. Malty and pretty ok. Nothing really special, but at the same time, oddly drinkable. When I went to bars in the Netherlands and there weren’t any new beers for me to try, I’d order this.
