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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Clear dark orange beer with white head. Aroma is grainy malty, maizey and stale like a bulk lager. Taste is malty, starchy sweet, belgian yeasty with apple juice, little bitter and little watery. No finish at all, thin mouthfeel. I used to like this when I was new to Belgian beers, but I guess it was because this is so close to bulky lagers.

KLTZK (55) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle 25cl. Pours a small off-white head. Pale amber appearance. Malty and a bit fruity aroma. Sweet malty and a bit fruity taste. Malty aftertaste. Watery palate. Boring for a Belgian.

Bottle from the Bottle Shop, Bruges. Pours amber with a white head. This is a pretty bland affair really. Like a strong tasting lager, but with some yeasty notes in there too. Drinkable, but not one I’ll be revisiting.

Pour at bottleshare. Muddy orange with slight white head. Aroma is dish soap, alcohol, rose petals. Taste is muddled hop...more floral than bitter, but everything is a bit difficult to pull out individually. Funky sour/stale aftertaste. Didn’t dig it.

Dirty finish, not super pleasant. Light golden, pretty beer. Overall drinkable I guess but this is pretty low quality with some serious off flavors going on.

thellgren (496) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2015
Tasted at some Brussels beer cafe. Almost forgot to add this after my Belgian beer trip. Taste is a bit too sweet for me. Something like caramel. Might be better with food.

Unique flavor leaves a bit of an aftertaste. Hard to describe exactly, but the best I can do is say it seems too sweet. Not bad - certainly drinkable - light and pleasant but nothing special.
