"Speciale Belge" is one of the better Belgian beers of the early 20th century. This smooth-drinking, amber-coloured top-fermentation beer has a sensible alcohol content.

Special PALM malts determine its honey-like mellowness and PALM’s own selected yeasts give it a fruity yeast aroma. Fine aroma hops from Kent afford subtle harmony. PALM is the absolute number one “BELGIAN AMBER BEER”.

Made with English hops, French Barley, and Belgian yeast, PALM represents the best of European beer-making traditions. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. PALM is a great alternative to traditional pilsners and lagers for the beer drinker looking for something a little different.

Noted beer writer Michael Jackson described PALM Speciale as "exceptionally fresh, with aromas of toasty malt, a bitter-orange palate and a tartly refreshing finish."

Great amber color. Bartender served it in the appropriate glass. Light aroma with very little hop aroma. Smooth on the palate. Refreshing crisp finish. Enjoy with a Cuesta Rey cigar.
