had a pretty nice citrus and grass aroma. flavor was a let down. kind sweet and not as hoppy as the aroma. i wouldn’t expect south carolina to make a good beer.

12 oz bottle at Jim & Nick’s Bar-B-Q in Charleston, SC. Huge lasting fine-bubbled tan head atop a nice rustic amber body....very spicy, hoppy aroma with orange-peel, lemon juice and lots of dried pine needles for a vital aromatic experience....smooth, clean, fairly sweet front with touches of molasses and lightly toasted malts....rather dry and bitter finish, somewhat watery and a bit too thin, nevertheless a reasonably solid, respectable pale ale.

Pours a clean golen orange with a good head and nice lacing. A nice not to grassy hops and malt aroma. Beer had a smooth creamy palate with good smooth carbonation not fizzy at all. A good taste of malt and hops with a lingering bitter that I like much. A really good beer for the style.

Low intensity grassy hop aroma. Orange body holds a two finger thick, mostly lasting, white head. Citrus tinged hoppy fore. The malt also is citrus tinged, but also has lots of sweeter white fruit notes like apple. Finish is mildly bitter and the aftertaste is lush and fruit laden.

12 oz bottle. Clear golden-orange color with thin white head. Prominent grassy hop aroma with a hint of hay. Like putting your nose in a bag of hop leaves. Tangy up front and slightly sweet with a healthy smack of those grassy hops again. No hop bitterness.

Overall a good Pale Ale. Have had this one in Columbia Sc a number of times. Nice orangish color. not to hoppy with a little bite..sort of citiric in nature. Nice with food, but you need a glass of water to go with it. Would get again if no stouts avalaible. Not too heavy...but not too light either...much better than macros.

Palmetto Pale Ale is a very respectable APA. This beer pours to a deep pale color with a nice white head, and a soft carbonation. The nose is very fragrant with citric hop aromas and just a touch of malt sweetness. The body is a sold malt base of good pale malt flavors, some nice, juicy, fruity esters. This beer finishes with a very nice, dry, citric hop bitterness that lingers.

on draft flying saucer columbia, sc.
your typical look, feel, taste, light in the hops area. but compared to the other locals a bit better. still not very impressive and makes ya look around for something else.

Pours a golden orange color with a small fading white head. Aroma is hoppy and citrusy. Taste is also hoppy and citrusy with a grapefruit flavor to it. A good pale ale overall.
