Golden yellow, small white head. Muted aroma, light lemony hops. Fairly moderate flavour, some hops but nt a lot and some limpid citrus notes. Muddled. Shared with Tupalev.

Bottle, brought back from my in-laws trip. Slightly grainy aroma. Gold coloured pour, small white head. Thin mouthfeel. Pretty standard micro lager here - no offensive tastes or anything, but not exactly screaming flavour either. No appreciable bitterness or really any of the grain hints in the aroma. I could see sipping on this in the summer, but I was pretty disappointed overall.

Ahhhh...nothing like a trip to S. Carolina to relax the mind. These quality brews from Palmetto fit the bill nicely while chillaxin’ in Charleston. The lager is light with some light floral/herbal bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Nice lager, nice color, light citrus, malt, yeast. Could have used more hops i thought. Had it in H.H.S.C. good local brew.

Nice light nose to this Lager, decent head, with a off yellow tint. Light flavors of citrus with a well balance of sweet malt. Nice clean finish. Just a solid example to an American lager

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lemon aroma. Pale orange and yellow color. Nice body, but seriously lacking in taste. Not much hops going on, and you can barely taste the earthy lager qualities.

A very good, although unoriginal, premium American lager. If you are in South Carolina you should check this beer out.

Pretty much on target for that "premium lager" mainstream beer syle: birhgt gold color, distinctly malty with some hops, soft carbonation, low bitterness, and easily quaffable. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but this is much better than many other better known premium lagers.

This is a town I spent allot of time in as a kid when this wasn’t an option. I’m pleased Ross was able to send me Palmetto beers. This is how it rates: Clean and crisp, this is a very nice beer. Earns better ratings than its getting in my opinion. For those who haven’t been to Charleston let me tell you its a fun town with a great heritage and you know what? It has a solid beer company producing very good micros. If a golf trip or siteseeing is in the cards for you, you should give this brewery beers a look over. They are very tasty.

a pretty good lager- pours golden color. flavor reminds me of heineken, but much better. a very nice hop presence in this brew that always seems to lack in lagers. this is a damn good lager, and something ill buy again whenever i get down SC way.
