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.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, caramel and lemon. Taste is much the same. Light and easy to drink but without a lot of character. Has a light malty semi sweet finish without much hop influence.

Gold color with an ok taste (no aftertaste to speak of). Easy to drink - much better than standard pale lagers. It being local doesnt hurt either. :)

The aroma is corn like with grass. The appearance is milky gold with a smaller head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. I am not entirely impressed with this beer but it’s not a total disaster.

Decent, much better than the pale lagers. Slightly sweet flavor. Smooth and easily drinkable, but lacking in taste. Not very memorable.

Pours golden with a frothy white head. Tastes smooth and a little sweet. There are finishsing hops are present but they dont add to the aftertaste. Dfrinkable.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Bottle courtesy Jmichael. Pours a clear coppery amber with a lacy off-white head. A bit of nuts and toffee in the mild aroma with just a touch of resinous hops a couple of blades of new-mown grass behind them. Light body without being watery and medium carbonation without being fizzy. A bit of toast in the taste, but the palate moves along to the finish in fairly short order. More bitterness in the finish than I had expected for the style. Kinda nice!

Pretty good, and perfect for a godawful hot week in Columbia in July. Nutty malt taste makes it a very satisfactory alternative to the macros.

Bottle. Gold-colored with a nice white head. Pretty good carbonation. Actually drank this last year on vacation. Not a great beer but, better than the mass-produced swill put out by the big boys. I like lagers and I can drink this one.
