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.

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

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.
