COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Haack (101) - Hornslet, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle: premium lager mainstream beer syle: bright gold color, distinctly malty with some hops, soft carbonation, low bitterness. Easy to drink. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but this is much better than many other better known premium lagers. I liked the brewery bar. Nice place.

With the other brews measuring up pretty well I don’t understand the need for this one. i guess they felt they need a mainstream offering, too bad!!!

blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear gold with a spare white head. Sweet aroma of grain and mild sourness. Sweet watery grainy flavour. Light bodied. No sir, I don’t like it.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - tupalev’s bottle. Pale gold with an average quick diminishing white head. Pretty ehh honey-sweet grainy aroma (rolled oats?), with some light dried out fainly floral hops; clean, at least. Tastes pretty much the same, with appreciable alcohol for some reason - again, weak but not offensive. Sharply fizzy mouthfeel combined with watery sugary sweetness and a quick finish - not an ugly beer, but I’d have to squint to get this to a 3.

GregClow (2902) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, jerc, HogTownHarry & tupalev - courtesy of tupalev. Bright golden colour with a small white head. Sweet, slightly grainy aroma - OK, but nothing special. Light body. Sweet, cloying flavour - not refreshing. Didn’t care for this one much at all.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Courtesy of decaturstevo - Clear golden color with a light white head that faded quickly. Leaves a foam ring around the glass as you drink it down. Has that typical grainy pale lager aroma. Light malt flavor with some noticeable bitterness. Light bodied and smooth. Decent pale lager. Thanks Steve.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12 oz bottle at Hominy Grill in Charleson, SC. A fizzy quick-receding snowy head caps the clear, medium amber body....light lemon sourness touches the grainy fresh nose, and faint floral hops provide interest.....lovely Munich malts are a solid, supportive background on the tongue for a smooth-drinking experience, with light sweetness upfront and dry fine herbal-hoppy crispness towards the finish....clean, slightly on the thin side, very refreshing.

My favorite lager. Clean, crisp, nice flavor. I could drink this all day. One of the best in it’s class.
