Palm "Speciale"
Brouwerij Palm - Steenhuffel, Belgium
Belgian Ale (ABV 5.4%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 2.7/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 10/20

The pour was a clear golden copper with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that dissipated quickly and had some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a floral hop and a musty yeast with notes of dried fruit, caramel and banana.

The taste was lightly sweet and a bit malty with a mild caramel note from the start and finished with a crisp mild hoppy taste and had a hint of fruitiness at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time with the malty sweet fruity flavor left behind.

Mouthfeel was very light in body and a bit watery in texture with a good lively carbonation.

Overall a pretty generic Amber Ale with a great drinkability...
