This brew came in a mixed box recently – which for me is always the best way to get your beers : A box filled with mystery contents, delivered at an undetermined time. Of all those bottles and cans this was the one that intrigued me the most.
Cracking this one gives off a stench like sweet sweaty onions and not at all in a bad way. Delicious, sweet sweaty onions. Smokey and sweet, not a traditional smell for an Amber Ale but maybe that’s something other Amber Ale’s should be thinking long and hard about. The stench is clean with a slight mustiness.
The taste is Amber Ale however, without a doubt. Traditionally so. There’s a sweet malty flavour from this one – biscuity but refreshing. A slow sipper to be enjoyed rather than drank which is what i proceeded to do for the next hour or so.
They say the best things come in small packages but i’m not really sure that applies to beer. With that being said this tiny 250 ml boi isnt a bad sample. Sitting pretty at 5.2% volume, Palm is a civilized Belgian sup with an aggressively delicious smell.
