2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Saw this in a local discouter.
12 oz bottle.
In appearance this is alright dark amber with a small frothy/bubbly off white head..decent laceing.
Aroma is pretty none-descript, just faintly malty.
flavour is also not much to write home about, just semi-sweet malts followed by some bitterness in the aftertaste.
Ok on the palate..just average.
Overall a very very average brew..typical of Portland brewings contract division.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Was in Sacramento and needed a primer for a night on the town, and saw this. Decided to try it since I hadn’t seen it before. As a consequence of my situation, I had to drink it straight from the bottle. Tasted a little bit of malt, but nothing much beyond that. Aftertaste was off and not pleasant. Two Palms is ONE PALM TOO MANY!!!!!!!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very drinkable. Nice medium amber color. Slight fruity flavor (peach) balanced by malt. However, not a very complex ale. Little head

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark amber with little head. Aroma has a slight sweetness with some fruit and breadiness. Flavor shows some citrus and berry flavor, but mostly a bready malt. Slightly sweet finish that makes it easy to drink.
