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.

Fantastic nose leads to a great collar of tight bubbles that lace the glass after every delicious taste! Foods perfect compliment!

A good amber beer! I still think people refer to often to other beers when they give points...This beer is not a strong beer, but is mentioned to drink not to degustate. Good work!

Drank on draft. Beautiful reddish gold colour. Full body, satisfying taste. Not a "session beer" but more for drinking like a glass of wine, sip by sip. Not for getting drunk but for getting the taste. Excellent beer.

A very good year-round ale. Probably my favourite ale. This one is much better than De Koninck.

Perfect for any occasion and will easily replace your ’regular’. Can be too sweet for some, but just right for most.

Palm can poured into Palm glass. Palm has virtually replaced pilsener in my fridge as ’everyday-beer’. The reason is simple. This beer has the drinkability of a pilsener but as an added bonus, has much more flavor to it. The medium roasted malts give a copper red-browinsh color and as a result make the malts shine trough a whole lot more when compared to standard pilsener. Because not much hop is used, what you get is a velvet, smooth, honey-like malt taste. I like that a lot. Availability is not a problem for me because Palm has declared the Netherlands as their second ’home-market’ after Belgium. I can find Palm in can or bottle in any supermarket and that is good thing. Like De Koninck from Antwerp, Palm falls in the category of the ’Speciale Belge’ ales, this means easy drinkability combined with a great taste and a moderate alcohol volume. Palm is a year-round ale; refreshing in the summer and warming in the winter. I highly recommend this beer.
