COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
cask, Festival Special;
This new beer (just called ‘4.6’, on the continent) is a brew out of the norm for this celebrated brewery, not only at a lower-than-usual strength, but also using hops from New Zealand. It is light in colour, with sauvignon grape, grapefruit and pineapple notes in the aroma, plus a clean, dry bitterness in the flavour, completed with an exotic fruit aftertaste and the delicate notes of the palm yeast.

Fruity and hoppy aroma. Isn't as nice as the beers that I drank in holland. Slightly tinny tinge. Quite disappointing for a lovely lovely beer. That's what you get from crap bars in clapham. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice beer with orange color, a bit like an amber. Sweet and fruity flavor and aroma. Frothy and white head, but briefly persists. Very fruity and a bit bitter finish. I very like beers like this Palm.

Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet with a average duration, fruity, fruity yeast. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20101029]

Cask Handpump at the Paramount JDW, Manchester 15/11/2010 Floral and slightly spicy aroma. Golden coloured a little spicy and hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness and bitterness in a crisp full malt finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, after the end of ’Spoons, Beer Festival ’10. Orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of mango, or at least that mixed tropical fruit drink. Pleasant if rather thin and remote fruity taste. Only the briefest hints of dryness, making the overall effect rather banal.

Spoons Fest! Clear gold beer, tiny white head. Low carbonation, smooth palate. Sweetish aromatic Nelson hops - presenting here as mildy grapey, a trace of pine as well. Sweetish dry malt backs it up. A trace of bubblegum in the aftertaste. Not bad but was hoping for something a bit more exciting. A little tepid overall.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2010
Cask Conditioned Handpump Red Well Wellingborough. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. Predominant yeast notes. A bit bready and with light lemony notes. Low bitterness and certainly not a Nelson Sauvin hop bomb. Not really keen on this.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Very pale amber, slight off-white head. Huge tropical fruit (passion fruit, white grape and lychee) to the fore, but then it’s slightly ruined by a touch of sulphur and some unripe notes. A little gingery spice comes through at the end. Rather on the watery side, but a very interesting beer nevertheless.

berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
Cask at the Claude Du Vall (JDW), Camberley. Amber with a loose off white head; attractive aroma of apricots and Belgian yeast; rather thinly bodied with a sweet, fruity apricot flavour; and a gently spiced finish. A Belgian Ale that I could actually manage more than a single pint of!

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
From cask at Standing Order. Pours hazy orange with a small white head, creamy dense head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Rather fruity hoppy and mild yeasty fruity notes mixed into this. Fruity and hoppy bitter finish.
