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.

Dacrza (664) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Ommegang stem... OCCASION: celebrating the unseasonably warm afternoon of football, Christmas lights and fun with my sons... APPEARANCE: opaque, deep golden amber body with a soft, foamy thin white head that rings uniformly; lacing is cirrus cloud and ocean crest... AROMA: aromatic, fruity--sour apple and tart candy... PALATE: light, fizzy as cider; possesses some staying power in the mouth, but rather dry like champagne...TASTE: mildly tart and pleasantly crisp with little exchange of flavor in the exhale; an underlying hint of lager malts, but inevitably this is a clean basket of fruit with enough hops to hint at an ale...OVERALL: This has to be one of those handful of brews I have passed numerous times, always intending to try and never quite trying; its inclusion in the "Great Beers of Belgium" forced my hand, and I am pleased to find it a serviceable, light, cheaper version of Unibroue’s wonderful Ephemere (which announces its apple right up front); a single notch below the Estaminet pilsner in the sample, and two below the Rodenbach--but beer drinking isn’t really a competition, right?...

Bit hazy, amber to copper colored, small to medium off white creamy head with nice lacing. Aroma is fruity shake, banana, some caramel candy, yeast. Taste is medium- sweet caramel candy, again banana fruity shake, bananabread finish, low herbal bitterness. Low to medium bodied, moderate+ carbonation. (on tap, Palm Brewery, Steenhuffel, B)

nathanvc (69) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2015
Amber/brown in colour, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel, bread and brown sugar. Tastes light sweet and light bitter. Light body and thin texture. Watery overall, even a bit stale. Not that special.

pkbites (738) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Tap @ Cafe Hollander, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Lovely amber pour with creamy beige head that’s very frothy. Tons of thick, sticky lacing on the glass sides. Simply beautiful. But that’s where it ends. This has a weird aroma of burnt brown sugar and koogin. Odd taste of molasses and bad old caramel. Not refreshing, not a good chugger or sipper. After seeing how pretty it is I was disappointed in the strange nose and taste of it. Not enjoyable at all.
