12 oz. bottle from somewhere in Charleston. Ar: Aroma is light bread dough, moderate citrus, grassiness. Ap: 12 oz. bottle, shaker. Pours a lovely clear copper with a 1" frothy head that lasts quite a while. Good looking beer. T: Pretty moderate malt up front - notes of cereal and caramel. Finish packs a surprising wallop and is well bittered. P: Medium body, pretty assertive carbonation. Palate gives this a refreshing side. O: Packs more of a punch than I expected for a common (though I think I’ve only ever had one of these and that was a long time ago). Nice refreshing, well balanced beer.

Color of amber and smells very malty. Tastes very bitter and hoppy. This should be categorized as an IPL. Pretty decent beer!

Nice malty smell, taste is bitter on the front end and gets more so after time 60/40 hops to malt that increases..semi clean finish but def hoppy...too hoppy for me

Pours a clear copper with a sudsy head. Aromas of some malts and other funk, but it seems a bit off. Taste is a bit metallic at that and leaves a rubbery aftertaste. Not too fond of this one. I know my home state can do better.

On tap, poured into a half pint shaker. The aroma is a floral and herby dank note with a light citrus touch and caramel. The herb and dank notes strengthens late. The beer is effervescent clear honey with a white frothy head, good lace, and retains a medium ring. It’s a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The beer is thin, creamy, and has a fluffy carbonation. A light malty body has a roasted quality with a caramel, citrus, and light herb flavor. The finish is grassy with a dry wax, citrus, and light dank flavor and an aftertaste that’s clean with a mild malty caramel.

Matt B. Hooking me up In his recent SC trip, poured from a 12 oz. bottle. The color is a near clear gold with some lasting head. Aroma is a mix of grain and light grassy type hint.

Lighter in body with a spritzy carbonation level giving a lively feel over my tongue. Flavor is a ceral grain base with some mild citrus hops that lingering slightly after the sip. Malt bill is decent and balance is pretty good the the citrus hops. As it warms it shows that light grassy note. Decent drink.

On tap in the Palmetto tasting room, pours a clear dark orange with clumpy white head. Nose has orange, mild biscuit, yeast, some odd cinnamon notes. Sort of zippy in the mouth, orange, some soap, peppercorn. Astringent finish.

Bottle. Amber color with white head. Aroma is of corn and mixed skunky malt. Light bodied. Taste is a bit bitter, lingers for a bit. Taste is better than the smell, but still not great.

It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of wheat and malts. The taste was slightly bitter with a smooth finish.

I'm going to forget about this one as soon as I'm done typing. There's nothing at all memorable or special about this beer.
