16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Presents a light yellow body with good clarity and a 1/3-inch, snow white head.

Smell: Notes of yeasty dough, sweet-scented morningtime cereal, and a snippet of dried herbs with a light, transient hint of a well-used CoinStar machine.

Taste: Sweetish cereal maltiness rounded out by some stale dough at the start with some minor hop accents giving a hint of dried herb. Hmm. Make that very minor hop accents. Even using the word "accent" is a overdoing it a bit. Small little hint of metal that, for me, totally kills the already deficient taste. Less-than-crisp, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Estaminet is lacking in all but its price.

Crystal clear bright golden 2 finger bright white clingy head. Clean grainy nose.

Flavor wise a little bland, I wanted to like this because I like palm but it's a little boring. Definitely better than a Stella though. Sweet malty grains, medium bodied with a slight creaminess, faint hop bitterness tries to balance fruity sweetness. Carbonation is lower than expected. It is an extremely clean drinking beer so I always enjoy nice clean flavors. But otherwise pretty lackluster. Better then stella still.

Clear golden, short-lived white head - some lace.
Muted nose - faint cracker, smoke...some grassy tone.
Dry and crisp but lacks the flavor of a pilsner - - not terrible but nothing memorable either.
Clean, thin, proper carbonation in the mouthfeel.
So - so overall....not one that gives you much to make you want another 1 or 2.

Pours a pale, clear, light straw color. Rather large head, somewhat chunky in appearance, the color of bleached bones. Retention is fairly good and lacing is pretty damned good for the style.
Smell is the typical, stereotypical, hoppy, rotting fruit and vinegar pilsner smell you get from every megabrew pale, pilsner I've ever had. Decent balance.
Taste is exactly as expected. Hops, that weird, fruit-like note, vinegar, nothing else. Typical BMC style, why-am-I-drinking-this beer. Balance is decent.
Medium bodied, lighter effervescence than others of the style.
If you like what they advertise during sporting events, you'll like this. If you don't, you won't.

didn't know this was a Palm product when I got it....
pours a corona/dehydrated urine yellow with some bulky thick and sticky foam on top.
healthy, husky pils/cereal aroma...
taste is typical.... pils, but a bit bland and a funky side taste I cannot identify. very weak taste; metallic.
interesting, but not my preferred style. by a long shot. Heineken/stella flavor with low abv....
beautiful label on the bottle, though.... it got me to buy it!
