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.

Bottle from mail dot Duane, thanks! Hazy amber with a creamy tan topper. Aroma is dusty and grainy with sweet malt and floral hops. Semi-sweet taste of caramel malts, floral hops and some vegetation to boot. Mild bitter finish.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2004
2004 bottle @ the gathering. Deep yellow-gold, mostly clear, small white head. Aroma of metal, hay, floral hops, sour yeast. Flavor is metallic and hoppy, very flowery and bitter, with no malt to speak of and then a watery death for the finish. Medium-light body, over-carbonated. Canít find much use in drinking this.

travita (3845) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2008
On tap in South Carolina. Amberish in color with a decent beige head. Taste has a crisp hop character. Decent pale ale. Light hoppy smell with a good balance of some malts.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
On cask at the Charleston Brewvival on 02/27/2010. Cloudy orange body with a small white head. Big citrus and simcoe aroma. Simcoe and citrus hop flavor, though somewhat light. Light body with moderate carbonation.

ben4321 (3765) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Works, 12/8/12

Aroma:†The nose has lots of sweet malts, some caramel, fruity notes, yeast, and toffee
Appearance:†This one pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color, with a foam laced off-white head
Flavor:†The taste is pretty sweet, with some fruity notes, and a slightly metallic bitterness
Palate:†This beer has a medium body, with a soft carbonation, and a lengthy, off, metallic finish
Overall Impression:† Overall, this one was not a favorite for me. It is missing any of the wanted citrus or resiny hop bitterness that one might enjoy in this style. Also, it just doesnít come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didnít hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.

jkwood04 (3749) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 16, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, dough and cereal, and pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale, but not the best.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Had a weak aroma - limited malt and hops smells - slightly stale. Maybe cause I had to wait for it to warm up in a frosted mug. Deep amber clear with small foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body and medium carb. Mellow malt flavor, not too sweet up front. Big hops gives nice bittering finish with a nice nutty bitter after. An OK APA.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 5, 2006
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.
