After enjoying the other Two Palms brews I decided to round out the last of my choices by Two palms. Rather disappointed. Amber in color as advertised. Very little head with poor retention, no lacing. Sweet smell and sweet taste which is quickly offset by a hoppy bitterness. Doesn't balance very well. I'm not that impressed. I'm glad I picked up some Nimbus Monkeyshine while at the store in case I didn't like this. I'll offer this one away.

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.

Pours a hazy amber color that is a bit more brown than amber with a skimpy white head.

Smell is a bit of malt and a lot of biscuit. There are some faint fruity scents to this and faint herbals. As it warms faint maple and honey scents come out of the background.

Taste is mildly sweet and very fruity. The hop bitterness hides till the end and gives a dry and astringent finish. The bitterness hits you in the back of the throat and there is a faint warming alcohol effect. The hop bitterness become more dominant as you drink it and it becomes fairly spicy.

Mouthfeel is a little thin.

Very tasty and drinkable brew I am astonished. I saw that Pyramid actually makes this so I wasn't expecting much. A surprisingly drinkable beer. It isn't world class but this is a damn tasty everyday drinking beer.

"A classic ale with deep bronze color and a pleasing round flavor."

I found this beer at Albertson's while shopping for some holiday drinks. Since I hadn't heard of it, it was on sale, and it was brewed in Berkeley, I decided to try it. There isn't much on it to indicate that it is a Portland Brewing Company label, just saying Two Palms Brewing Co. The bottle is a short nose with an orange, olive and khaki color scheme. No ABV or brewed on date.

I'm not sure what a "round" flavor is. Well balanced? Fat?? It does pour a nice bronze color with a half inch head which lasts longer than most beers I pour. I get some peach in the smell and another light fragrance that I can't place. Not much else.

The first taste is smooth with a bit of caramel. It is well carbonated but not overly so. This isn't a complex beer but it is easy to drink. Not sure about the round part, though. To mangle a quote from a great movie, "'Do you got any beers in funny shapes?' 'Nope, not unless you think round is funny.'"
