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.

Dacrza (799) - 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?...

Keg in Center Parc, Zandvoort. Clear golden orange beer with a white head. Nose is floral, caramel, fragrant floral and fruity yeast esters, pear drops, slight cereal toasted grain. Taste is sweet, floral, perfumed yeast ester, caramel. Moderate flavour but with nice Belgian fruity yeast action.

Typical commercial beer, even though it’s not eurolager, it’s still very boring and dull. No obvious defects doesn’t make it any better than it is.

Bijl (117) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
Amberkleurig helder bovengistend bier. De kraag in crème, 2 vingers hoog....snel gezakt. De aromas zijn licht karamel en moutig, tikje fruitig. Geen hops in de geur! Smaak: Eerst metalig (niet echt prettig) daarna een zuurtje zoals van groene appel om iets honingzoet te eindigen. Een kleine nabitter, waterig mongevoel en een erg dunne body. Koolzuur is medium. Geen gekke dingen.... Een bier om er makkelijk een paar van te nemen....niet speciaal zoals het label meld.

Clear amber, long medium head and sparkling. Some caramel malt aroma. Light sweet and even less bitter, with some malt and syrup notes. Lively carbonation, thin texture.

Hvis det var en pilsner - ville jeg give den en væsentlig bedre karakter. Men det er en Belgisk amber - som er meget anonym...

TedE (845) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2016
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Spicy grainy nose. Copper coloured beer with Thin sudsy white head. Fine bubbles. Light bodied and zingy. Crisp dry finish. This beer does have characteristics of Champagne along with a touch of English bitter, even a little dried fruit. Easy drinking for an ale. Very nice.
