COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hop flavor and aroma of the truly American cascade hop distinguishes this beer.

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.

(Draught) Pours a murky burnt orange body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and mild grapefruit. Flavor of mild grassy hops.

I enjoyed a six pack of this while on Hilton Head. This was a very nice and enjoyable pale ale. Perhaps a bit thinner than I prefer but Id definitely drink it again. Nice deep golden color with reddish hints. Good, long-lasting head and nice hoppy flavors that did not disappoint. Id recommend this out of all of the beers in the Piggly Wiggly cooler, I think I bought the best available on Hilton Head.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2005
12 oz bottle consumed in the condo on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC. Pours golden with a fair white head. Aroma is sharp citrus and some floral notes. Flavor is sharp citrus hops that blend to a very short taste of malts before another puckering blast of citrus on the finish. Palate seems to not be as crisp as other pales that Ive tried. Seems somewhat unbalanced. Decent and drinkable but I liked the amber and the porter better.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Good looking golden IPA color, with citrus American hopping for bitterness and sweet malt. Good long bitter finish, and a pleasant surprise. Im probably a bit higher than average on the ratings of this one, but the style, with adequate west coast hopping, is one of my favorites. Again, I wonder about quality control and consistency, when other raters are complaining about the lack of hops.

If Im not mistaken this is my first South Carolina microbrew. Not too shabby really. So-so hop character. But not a bad ale overall.
