The gold-colored Palmetto Charleston Lager is perhaps the companyís cleverest creation; itís 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 Palmettoís is among the smoothest, mellowest around.

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 donít like it.

Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - tupalevís 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 Iíd have to squint to get this to a 3.

GregClow (2989) - 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. Didnít care for this one much at all.

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 (4420) - 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.

A nice golden glass with a clean white head. A dry aroma that reminds you of cardboard. A flavor of malt and paper. A little dry tasting. A pleasant beer with a flavor that had just a slight bitter that wasnít like hops. Just a bit of a weak/watery palate. I drank it a little warm trying to squeeze as much flavor out of it as possible. I would think that if this beer were served cold on a hot day I could and would drink them all day.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Aroma is a low intensity grassy, cardboard affair. Golden colored body holds a thin white head. Smooth barley sweetness int he fore and a hearty grainy flavor int he middle that is very bready. Finish is like a pear/apple pastry sans the icing. Itís all very low intensity like the aroma, but it tastes pretty decent.

Palmetto Lager is as impressive as the Pale and the Amber. This beer pours to a beautiful, straw golden color with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The palate is crisp and clean, with a very smooth and drinkable body. This beer finishes with a nice balance of malt and hop flavors.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - NOV 15, 2005
golden brown with a touch of sunshine. flickers in the night like a lost torch or star. simple and few olfactory sensory needed. slight crisp hop and lemon character. easy to drink and refreshing.
