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

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.

ben4321 (4626) - 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.

Ernesto987 (4548) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle, itís just your typical malty hopless pale ale with a dry bittering finish. Falls into the sea of mediocracy.

burg326 (4504) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a light orangish color with aromas of light fruit, some caramel and slme biscuit. Flavors are the same light fruit and citrus linger on the palate a decent pale ale overall.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12 oz bottle at Jim & Nickís 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.

travita (4375) - 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.

unclemattie (4356) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2007
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.

AirForceHops (4345) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2013
12 oz. can courtesy of queenholly. Hazy amber / gold color with thin white head. Nose is pine resin with some bread malt hiding underneath. The flavor is pine and weak citrus hops with bland malt. Backbone of the beer is toasted grain / corn. Light resin finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a thin off-white head. Light citrus hop aroma with big malt and an earthy finish. The flavor was citrusy and mildly acidic from the hops. Caramel malt flavors. Decent hop finish.

nick76 (4312) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2008
The aroma is hoppy but in a metallic way. There is also some lightly roasted caramel malt. The appearance is deep amber with a smaller head. The flavor is like the aroma and astringently bitter so itís not great. The palate is smooth. Overall I think itís drinkable but thats all.
