Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, and slight hop bitterness, pine. Taste is bitter and malty. Very balanced just not a lot going on.

On tap at the King Charles Inn. It poured a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma was moderately sweet, with bready malts and light floral hops. The taste was of mild caramel malts, bready, and a slight bitterness to the finish.

Tastes a lot like a pale ale but with less of a bite. Has a very smokey taste as you drink it. I didn’t really taste any amber notes or at least it’s a different type of amber than I am used to. Overall drinkable but not something I would have again.

Very mild smell, hoppy bitter taste, more than the malt of which there is very little...

12 FL oz. Pours a dark copper with a one finger, off white head. Slight sediment throughout. Aroma has faint notes of bread, citrus, and caramel. Smells alright. Taste starts out with a nice bit of caramel but ends with a harsh bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Overall this could be better. Ok flavours but I can’t get past the harshness of the bittering.

Well as I've decided that I'm giving up beer for Lent this year, this may be my last beer and my last beer review for a while. I think I made a wise choice going local for this last hurrah with Palmetto's Amber Ale. A refreshing and drinkable brew, pours a pleasant clear amber with lots of natural foam and lacing. Has an appetizing caramel malt aroma. Taste is malty and finishes with a mildly-earthy bitterness. Subtle dark chocolate flavor if you look for it. Strikes me as very "fresh" tasting. Solid bitterness but not really hoppiness, almost tastes more like a brown ale. Very pleasant, I am impressed overall. South Carolina needs more quality local brews like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours almost clear dark amber, off white head. Smell is caramel malts, slight fruity, bready. Taste is mild bitter, hints of citrus, bready, caramel. Eh.

At the club before dinner. draft. Light orange, too cold for much aroma but bread dominated. Quite smooth, similar to a Sam Boston Lager but less hop. Overall solid. Nothing too complex.

A: Hazy Amber/mild Golden Straw hue, creamy Off White Head, Great Lacing S: Very Malty, mild Citrus, mild Chocolate T: Smooth, Malty, mildly Sweet, Raisins M: Well Carbonated, Medium Bodied, Dry, Malty Sweetness coating Overall, probably one of the smoothest and great tasting amber ales I have had in quite a long time. I look forward to trying some of their other offerings.
