Reviews: Palm Bock Pils

A Pilsener brewed by
Brouwerij Palm

Steenhuffel, Belgium

Had on draft and sadly had to drink faster then I would have liked but I don’t think it would have changed my opinion. It poured a light yellow with a very nice head. It appeared and later felt highly carbonated on taste. It was light and dry and slightly sweet. It felt almost like I was drinking tonic water with a hint of beer.

My ratebeer.com score: 2.2

Offbeat News: Beer goggles on the lam

According to the Chicago Tribune police in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove are asking for the public’s help in returning a $150 pair of special goggles that are used to simulate the effects of intoxication.

Officers say the goggles disappeared this week from a table at a National Night Out event at a local park.

Officer Hector De La Paz says police believe the goggles were taken by accident.

Sometimes called “beer goggles,” the special glasses are used by police to demonstrate to high school students and parents how alcohol impairs a driver’s vision and judgment. They look like safety glasses.
