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.

HogTownHarry (6101) - 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.

blankboy (6051) - 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.

alexsdad06 (5410) - Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma was grainy with a hint of cardboard. The flavor was grainy, corn, mild sweetness, and a slight bitterness in the finish. A bit watery and thin. I’ll pass on this in the future.
