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.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2003
Yellow-amber, clear. Broken white head, thin but lacey. Nose of worts/malt. Bananaester. Taste as of worts again; a bit bitterish as spiced with turmeric, caramel. Finish is maltdrink again, but especially characterised by a metaloxide taste. Bo-o-oring.

schepers (32) - Limburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 One of the beers I always have in the house. Good replacement of pilsener if you want something else. Sweetish taste that dries up a bit. There is also The Hergist version in 750 champagne bottle tastes different, less sweet, little bit yeasty, worth a try.

PeterHollander (20) - Hengelo, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2003
Bottle. A very mild and almost sweet beer, more like a lager instead of a Belgian Ale. Drinkable

Frank (2868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Bright orange with a thinnish off-white head with some slight rings of lace. Nose is of fruity yeast esters, sweet but nondescript. Medium to full bodied with little carbonation--very smooth on the toung but boring. Taste is very similar to the aroma--sweet and slightly fruity, well balanced by a medium hop bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2003 noheinie4u brought this back from Europe. Great appearance with a lot of lacing. Very smooth flavor with a clean aftertaste.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2003
Malty mild and easy drinking, a little underhopped. Just seems to be a bit unexciting.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 16, 2003
Mild and not really challenging. Sort of a Belgian session beer. I liked it, overall.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2003
An amber beer with a good head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and malty. ANd the flavor is soft, sweet of a good maltblend, and slightly bitter. A really good beer.
