Pours a fairly thick brown with a nice head. Smells of lightly sweet, toasted malt: peat, caramel, bread.

Tastes like it smells: a lot of nice, subtle malt complexities balanced out wonderfully by spicy hops.

Someone told me this is the beer that Fat Tire is based on. I believe them. The malt profiles are quite similar--and quite good--only Palm doesn't have any of that weird, burny dryness that affects the back end of most of New Belgium's brews. A very nice, malty session beer.

I really enjoy Palm, it has a great crisp taste and stands up well as an accompaniment to food or as a solo act. It has a good clean aroma and has a nice golden sheen when poured. There is no aftertaste and pours well. It does not have the full body flavor of its neighbor Heineken but it is very satisfying.
