Amber Ale is Palmetto’s most popular and best brew. The color is typical of the style. It is a fairly thick brew. I love the body and malt character. The hops are expertly balanced too. I crave this sometimes but distribution is very limited.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nearly clear amber with a nice garnet hue. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Very light nose of malt and a hint of herbal hops.
Heavy light body that has moments of a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice bit of effervescence in the middle and a solid burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is intense, slightly complex and somewhat balanced. It begins with moderate herbal hop flavor over a weak sweetness that falls short of providing balance or complexity. The middle effervesces into a mild herbal bitterness. The finish is a slow herbal bitterness fade that is somewhat dry. If only it had tasted as good as it looked.

Sampled on tap at the brewery, pours a clear amber with some ringing, cream colored head. Nose is meh, some soggy cracker, some malt, a little wet dog. Flavor is the same, crackers, mild apple, soggy bread. A bit sweet too. Watery finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle thanks to my buddy Matt B. In his recent SC trip. The color is a clear Amber with quickly disappearing head leaving little in the glass. Aroma is toasted malt and traces of grain.
Lighter in body (borderline watery) with a lower carbonation level. Like most Amber ales the flavor just doesn’t have much going on. This one has a toasted grain base with caramel/ butterscotch hint. Bitterness is very weak without any hop flavor, just simply bitter. Nothing against this brew per say but it’s the style itself I find boring and completely uninteresting at this point.

Tap@The Swamp Fox, Charleston. Amber beer with a strong slightly off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some yeastiness and cocoa elements, and the flavour is oaty malty with hops and roasted bitterness. Overall a nice Amber ale.

Fairly middle of the road beer. Nothing special but at the same time it isnt anything to chase you away, Nothing great but nothing bad.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from my father-in-law. Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off-white head that lasts quite a while. Good amber malt nose, but the flavor is reminiscent of wet dog - if that makes any sense. Notes of grass and straw in there, too. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a damp, earthy, offputting mouthfeel. Not as dreadful as I make it sound, but still pretty bad.

Bottle at jaspers porch in ridgeland, SC. Pours a copper, amber color with a light khaki head. aroma is rich, sweet malt and light hops. Light bitterness in the flavor and a nice, hearty dose of malt. Oily, light body. Very nice. Could use a touch more body in my opinion but still very good.

Palmetto Amber poured in a pint glass, had great color and a very inviting aroma. the taste was stronger than anticipated for this amber. It had a very strong aftertaste that I would characterize this beer as a sipping beer vice the "cold one" after cutting the grass. Once you took the first sip you could tell this was a well crafted brew. After the third sip the initial strength of the brew became very palatable. This would be a great beer to have with a dinner.
