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.
Sold as Palm outside of Europe.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 Retasted 14/06/2007. Ghastly - musty, caramelly, cardboard with lightly phenolic character. Tasted 13/12/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Orange-gold, bright, bubbly. Just off-white, airy, thinning head that laces up strongly. The nose is apples and toffee, at first, then oranges and a slight musty yeastiness. Orange-like chewey malt flavour with soe toffee and a little bit of a metallic finish. Light-medium weight, and softly carbonated in the mouth, but there is a long-lingering astringent harshness that develops later and doesn’t sit all that well with me.

Nothing special. A bit thin mouthfeel and very mild flavour.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Didn’t really like this. Not that complex and far too watery for my taste. If I see this again I think i’ll pass.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2005
Bottle. There was nothing to like about this. Just really malty and sweet. Flat sweet caramel and grain. Not very good at all.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottle. Thanks to gonzobeer. Light clear brown color with no head at all. Corn aroma. Taste of malt caramel. Watery texture. Very thin for a belgian ale, not much taste. Bière d’un brun clair et pale avec aucun collet. Gout de malt caramel avec une texture acqueuse. Manque de corps et de gout, très ordinaire.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Not as good as De Koninck (you can read my review of that one to get a better grasp on what I mean). Amber. Malty. Watery.

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2010
not much aroma, slightly sweet but buried under a white frothy head that seems to be nitrogen infused... surely not? Warm nutty light brown colour that matches the nutty warmth on the tounge. But fades away too quick, without a lot of character or depth, to a slightly rotten aftertaste. If I didn’t know better I would’ve thought it was a ham-fisted attempt by a mass light-lager brewer to create a "traditional ale" style; inoffensive enough for those who like things safe.
