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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2015
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.

Pours an amber color with a small canvas colored head. Notes of dirt, metal, muted earthy hops, orange citrus, and sweet bread.

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.
