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.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 I stared in disbelief at the orange tinted beverage served to me, from draft, at Lowlander. The menu called it Palm Speciale, but my taste buds called it something quite different. Only slightly stronger than water with slightly less taste. I’d have saved £3 drinking from the bathroom tap. Perfect for people that don’t enjoy the taste of beer.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2006
25 cl bottle. Light brown and clear, with a thick and foamy tan head. Fruity aroma. Heavy malt flavor, with a mild hop bite. Lingering finish of malt, that sours. More than I expected from this beer. For a cheap beer, it beats many American macro beers.

DuffMan (9025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Not a top belgian ale. Copper brown, thin head, muted aromas of yeast and caramel. Flat palate of dusty caramel and faint fruit, quite thin.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2006
Bottle. Golden orange colour with a small tan head. Malty, corny aroma and a light sweet, dry, fruity taste. Light body with a sweet finish.

joergen (25604) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle as Palm Export. Clear golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and fruits. Flavour of malts and fruits.

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle, 500ml, bottled in Poland. Light brown cola-colour, live with bubbles floating up a long time after pouring. The head is long and sits on the sides of the glass. Faint aromas of sth. sweet, berries, sugar? Quick attack in the flavor, sparkling hops and yeast. Long finish. No too good, better than an average lager but absolutely nothing special.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Tap - Kantij, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Reminiscent of a better Yuengling lager. Clean aroma, a little ’cheese sharpness’ to the flavor, no metallic flavor, a little ’bottom yeast/corn’ flavor still. PRetty and reddish-amber. I thought it was a lager though, not a belgian ale, so I’m docking it a few points for being a weak belgian ale rather than an above average lager...

jhliesen (812) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle #9 on the 2006 Europe tout--Light brown color with a small white head. The aroma has a touch of lights and the taste was mostly malty with a sweet ending.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Not as good as De Koninck (you can read my review of that one to get a better grasp on what I mean). Amber. Malty. Watery.

Sten (731) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2006
A amber coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is fruity and malty. The flavour is fruity, malty and sweet. Even a bit to sweet. (Bottle 25cl, 33cl, 75cl 5.2 Alcohol% in my version)
