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.

TomTron (447) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Pours a deep copper with barely any head. Some malty aromas in the nose but faint. Flavor is filled with malty sweetness and it lingers in the aftertaste. Not bad, one of the better offerings from Palmetto.

Ernest (7032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Draft at Palmetto, May 2015. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, orange), with notes of diacetyl and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Has potential to be quite nice but this batch was partly ruined by diacetyl.

chinchill (3590) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2015
12 oz bottle into a snifter. This is a solid, but quite average and unremarkable amber ale, It does lean a tiny bit towards the hoppier and less sweet side of the amber ale.spectrum. Even the appearance is average in terms of color, head, and clarity.

Not bad for an amber ale. Have certainly had better. Maybe a little nostalgia for my hometown of charleston, SC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tillmac62 (563) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2015
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.
