3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from somewhere in Charleston.
Ar: Aroma is light bread dough, moderate citrus, grassiness.
Ap: 12 oz. bottle, shaker. Pours a lovely clear copper with a 1" frothy head that lasts quite a while. Good looking beer.
T: Pretty moderate malt up front - notes of cereal and caramel. Finish packs a surprising wallop and is well bittered.
P: Medium body, pretty assertive carbonation. Palate gives this a refreshing side.
O: Packs more of a punch than I expected for a common (though I think I’ve only ever had one of these and that was a long time ago). Nice refreshing, well balanced beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a medium copper color with to fingers of eggshell foam that sticks nicely. Aromas are cracker malt and citrus with some underlying grass. Palate has a nice front end that matches the nose with nice clean malt and a crisp citrus punch... but the beer bitters harshly on the mid to late palate and gets rubbery and abrasive on the finish. Halfway there but the lingering metallic rubbery flavors ruin it !

Bottle. A nice "Carolina" (California) Common Lager. Has a nice citrus aroma and taste. Lingering finish but not in a bad way. Better than the I Pale Ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 This was purchased in Charleston in early November. It was not listed on ratebeer so I tried to get information from the brewer. I am glad to see it listed. We purchased some beer from Total Wine to bring home. This is tasty lager. It has wheat and malt flavors. The lager pours a clear golden color with a frothy head and lacing down the glass. Slightly bitter aftertaste with a smooth finish. Aftyershock had lively carbonation with medium body.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice, easy-drinking beer from Palmetto, in a style that gets way too little attention. Lagery, grainy nose, with a slight hop backbone, but that slightness grows greatly in the taste. The hops keep any unpleasant fruitiness from developing; rather, the beer finishes dry and bitter with some grain underneath. Well-layered, pretty, one of the brewery’s best.
