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 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

OK for style. Some light hops and coppery aroma. Amber pour. Light bitter finish with some mash malt. Bottle at beach near Charleston.

tillmac62 (425) - 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.

nimbleprop (5962) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
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.

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.

RichardGretton (4424) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
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 (7546) - 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.
