My first response would be smells of hops-as most pale ales should. When poured you get a light, frothy head which dissipates quickly while leaving a film on the glass. A bronze, opaque yellow-almost amber like-appearance. Overtones of hops with alight bubbly carbonation. Unfortunately I can taste the bottle in this beer, as with cans and the aluminum flavor left with some beers. Not a light beer, neither is it overly heavy, hoppy beers tend to have a certain heaviness with them-more grain used. Certainly an airy beer that should, perhaps, be sipped more slowly-large gulps seem to create air in the stomach. Visiting the website you can get a very interactive experience about the family brewery and the beers on offer. I would never turn down such a brewery tour experience. I should try this one on tap. www.palm.be
