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.

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 (726) - 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)

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Draught. A dark copper coloured beer with an off-white coloured head and some decent lace. The aroma is malty but there is some straw like bitterness as well. The taste is nice and malty with crunchy cereal like flavours. I have always liked this beer in the past and find it the most British of all the Belgians. Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 3.0

EithCubes (5426) - New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 Tap on Antwerpener Grote Markt.. Poured a beautiful amber. Very malty, pleasantly malty beer, smells malty with a bit of must, tastes malty with sweet fruitiness. Crisp and refreshing. Nicely matched with cheese. Great everyday beer. [2006.04.15: 3.4]

Re-rate many years later, this time a fresh bottle in the US (best before 08/2015). Nose sweet and crystalline, corny, fruity cloy to sicken and faint mineral character; corn character combined with so many esters in the nose could convince me this was a British strain. Pours ultra-clear amber/dark golden with a short beige head. Taste semi-sweet, again crystal, light ready finish, and sweet candied fruit throughout; a lot of similarities with American macro-lager, I’d even say malt liquor if not for the perceptible and rounding bitterness. Medium body, nicely malty with a slight oily finish on the tongue, but a positive. Crisp and very refreshing, if it weren’t for hangover associations, I’d buy this more often. [2015.04.20: 3.0]

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2006
(04.02.06) 330 mL brown bottle from Morel’s Restaurant and Café, Beijing, China. 5.4% ABV. Bottle labeled best before 7/2006. Poured clear brown with short-lived large white head. Soft carbonation. Sour sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied Belgium ale that starts dry with slight malt sweetness and fruity/toffee flavors. Finished dry with light malt fade. Dry and refreshing. A good drinkable Belgium ale that went well with Grandmother’s style mussels.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2006
Bottle... Clear, amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Spicy aroma with black pepper and orange peel. The flavor is very lager-like. A touch flemish, but well-bittered. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes a bit tart and then dry.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2006
Nice session beer. Very thin white head, pours a mid-brown, slightly ruby. Little sweet, hoppy. Refreshing, maybe a little greasy in the mouth. Nice drinking beer.
