Reactions and Insights
Some people in my circle consider Palm to be a great beer. I can’t muster such strong positivity — it’s always struck me as bland — but it’s pleasant and reliable. And it’s certainly good choice for a holiday breather.

Would I drink a case of it? 
Probably not.

OK, but would I drink a six-pack of it?
I’ve done it before and I may someday do it again.

Did it contribute to my holiday spirit?
Not really, no.

Label Notes
I am a huge fan of this label. It reminds me of an ’80s movie about Australia. Not any particular movie, just the concept of such a movie. 9/10

    I don’t even know how many cases of Palm I’ve had. It’s one of my top go-to beers when I want something not too malty and dark and not aggressively hoppy. It always hits the spot for me and goes great with Chinese and Thai, in my opinion.

    I can definitely see how it would go well with Asian food. And let me be clear, I don’t dislike it. It’s just not something I crave. I like the icon on the old label more, but overall I like them about the same.
