The gold-colored Palmetto Charleston Lager is perhaps the company’s cleverest creation; it’s strong in flavor, crisp, with a fresh, clean finish (i.e., no lingering aftertaste), but light enough so you could drink it just about all day. Yeast and a cool fermentation are what make a lager a lager, and Palmetto’s is among the smoothest, mellowest around.

Chudwick (2499) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Draft - pours pale amber with offwhite head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel and cheese. Flavor adds grassy hops. Strong bitterness for style. Sweetish aftertaste. Gets better with each sip.

Solid performer, good head and lacing. Reasonable flavors a bit on the heavy side with the hops which was a bit off putting.

Travlr (16827) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, hay. Taste is crisp and bitter. Head and shoulders above any adjunct lager.

Strykzone (5814) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear golden with a small white head. Almost no aroma but some hops bite at the first sip. Grain and malt are tasted. Not a lot to get excited over.

Foxbush (1531) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2011
This is a much better everyday lager than many big breweries produce. I enjoyed this at the Charleston Place hotel in Charleston. Nice golden color with a 1/2 inch head in a pilsner glass. Malts and hops in good balance. Midium body with soft carbonation. This is lager for watching football games and you will hvaing more than three beers.

from the bottle. Gold in color with off white head. Light, somewhat bland aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet, creamed corn perhaps, with no bitterness and a light, watery feel. Finish is a bit off-putting, with a touch skunk. Overall neither unpleasing nor memorable.

Charleston Lager’s best feature, its looks, will keep you happy for a few seconds. Not too much positive after that.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
When an icy cold beer on a 90 degree day with 90% humidity is as unsatisfying as this one, then there’s a problem. Sight grassy aroma and a weak watery micro-beer taste that made way for a metallic tang.

a clear gold/amber pour with almost no head. Malty almost sour scent. Taste is all malt some light dough taste. Almost no bitterness.
