look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: No persistent head, no lacing, clear rings all the way down. Fitting of a clear lager.

S: Vague malt and metal. As good as any bottled lager I've met, but not a standout by any means.

T: Middling sweet, buckwheat honey front, center, and standing tall. Barest hint of a hop finish, a ghost of a bitter note.

M: Crisp and light, a good beverage beer. Sharp enough to stand against even a heavy pizza.

Overall: A fine full lager, suitable for three or four at a run. Good to pound or to sip. A fine all-around beer.

Pours a light gold color with a short lived head. Aroma of stewed hops and sweet grainy malt. In the taste, pilsner malts, euro like malt and aggressive noble hop bitterness. The hop bite dries out the palate. Medium to light bodied with a dry finish. Overall, a decent euro pils.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin later. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Bready cereal malts, grassy noble hops.

Taste: Bready sweet cereal grains followed by noble grassy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, medium bodied, mild hop bitterness, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Better than most EPL's with none on the skunk aftertaste. I'd have another.

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!
