3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 Bottle. Copper with a small head that doesnít hang around much. Aroma is mostly nutty roasted malt with some undistinguished hops. Flavor is same. Palate is light-medium, with a slight hop tingle. Tasty, but not exciting. Still, itís one of the better brews of SC.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice copper-colored beer with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. You can still taste the malt while not being overwhelmed by the hops. Overall, a very drinkable pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange, small slick white head with bubbles. Nice aroma of grapefruit like citrus hops, maybe a bit of tea. Taste is surprisingly quite bitter - lots of hops, this time more orange citrus in nature I didnít really care for the light malt background, it had an interesting sweetness that just didnít mix well with the bitterness. But this light to medium bodied APA finished well, with a long tip of your tongue bitter linger. A nice beer from these guys.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The best beer yet on my trip to Myrtle Beach (other than their porter). Deep amber pour with a 1 finger white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Taste was grass, hops with just a teensy bit of malt. Not bad.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 Purchased six pack while visiting USC with my daughter. Geens is a major liquor and beer supplier near USC. This Pale Ale has an inviting golden color with a smallish head and lacing down the glass. The hop flavors of mild grapefruit were evident. The finish was smooth with some bitterness. My son and I enjoyed this ale after the spring gamecocks game. This is my first Palmetto beer. I am looking forward to trying their other products. At the AOPD meeting in Charleston I was able to enjoy more. I upgraded my scores slightl;y. Very smooth finish with some bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of mild grapefruit, lightly acidic, green hop leaf. Taste is grainy (in a good way), lightly acidic, and lightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with full carbonation. Good beer from a pitiful beer state.

This was my favorite out of the 4 Palmetto Beers that Iíve tried on my trip to Charleston. Had it both on tap and in the bottle. Preferred the bottle on this one. amber/copper colored. beautiful lacing on every one I had. Malt sweetness is controlled by a West Coast floral hop aroma. resembles an IPA. This is a great refreshing American Pale Ale.
