COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. Also available bottle-conditioned as Palm Hergist.

Just an average Belgium beer. Brown in color, sweet in taste. Mild in malt taste, not much else.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2006
25 cl bottle. Light brown and clear, with a thick and foamy tan head. Fruity aroma. Heavy malt flavor, with a mild hop bite. Lingering finish of malt, that sours. More than I expected from this beer. For a cheap beer, it beats many American macro beers.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle. Moderate hoppy, toasted malt, light smell of ginger. Light brown colour, clear body with a small fully dimishing head. Sweet flavor, medium duration. The body is rather light than medium, the texture is dry and the carbonation is very flat (nearly missing). Not my kind...

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2008
[871-20071130] 330mL (w/ jerc, tupalev). Smells like a skunk that has been soaking in a bathtub full of gin for a while. Clear, golden amber body with quick white bubbles. Grainy yeast flavour is a little skunky and vinegary. Medium body. Not pleasant.

On draft at San Diego Brewing Company. Don’t ask me how, but I could tell from the tap handle it was going to be bad... and I was right. I don’t know how they get away with calling this a belgian ale. It was like yeasty water.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a medium bronze/dark pale semi cloud body with a thin lacing head. Faint note with little flavors, some yeast and thin hops, but not much. Decent carbonated and thin bodied. Some faint citrus hints and a weak caramel. Not bad but for me this was boring.

SilkTork (5179) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2004
Bottle. Sept 2002. Disgusting nose - like rotting leather, damp rust and stale vomit - which creeps over slightly into the taste, which is otherwise quite sweet and pleasant; this is a rather English style beer but much sweeter on first impact, fading down into warm leather and iron. A most curious brew that is spoiled by the dreadful aroma and the sickly sweetness of first impact, but is nevertheless interesting to try. [2.6]
Bottle. Darkish amber with mixed foam and bubble head. Same sort of aroma as experienced nearly two years ago - a sort of vintage malty ale with the cardboard notes that come from a beer bottled off the yeast. It's not revolting, but it's not great either. Ugh. Just tastes like a stale British bitter. Soft caramel sweetness up front. Very poor mouthfeel, like sucking damp cottonwool. Hops are dreadful - stewed and lingering unpleasantly in the finish. The sweetness is like honey - and there's just a bit too much of it lingering around. No - I don't like this at all!

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2006
On tap. Clear golden/red color. Almost no head. Low-medium carbonation. Not very interesting for a belgian ale.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2007
(33 cl bottle, from the boys at The Rover) Clear copper color, small white head. Sugary oxidized scent. Thin sweet malty taste. Watery mouthfeel. Very lo wbitterness. Weak metallic aftertaste.
