COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The gold-colored Palmetto Charleston Lager is perhaps the companys cleverest creation; its strong in flavor, crisp, with a fresh, clean finish (i.e., no lingering aftertaste), but light enough so you could drink it just about all day. Yeast and a cool fermentation are what make a lager a lager, and Palmettos is among the smoothest, mellowest around.

Bottle. Massive surprise. I expected this brewery to be the Redhook of Charleston. This is goooood. Very grassy and biscuity malts. Closest thing Ive had to Great Lakes Dortmunder.

A surprisingly tasty and flavorful lager, not complex but well done in every category. Appearance is a solid burnished gold with plenty of head and lacing, aroma is a standard but strong pale malt and noble hop combination. Taste is the same, a relatively full flavored pale malt forward taste with a cool grassy/ pilsner-ish Czech hop contrast in the finish. Yet also finishes very clean and refreshing as a good lager should. I was impressed overall and will definitely be buying more of this when I want a simple and straightforward quality pale lager.

1st whiff and sip were typical generic lager, and it went downhill from there. Slightly vegetal offness that makes the flavor and feel more along the lines of crappy macro. Not good

smells like a light pilsner....slightly cloudy look...good head...taste is as you would expect from a lighter lager...60-40 malt-hops...finishes maltier...very middle of the road for me

Pours a light yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, banana. Taste is bad, vegetal, plastic, biscuit and lager yeast. This is off

Patrickctenchi (6206) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Pours very bubbly gold with a foamy, off-white head. Slightly vegetal, grain malt aroma. Taste is slightly corny....grainy....a bit of Czech-style bitter... Surprisingly heavy-bodied for the low ABV.

Bottle from mail dot Duane, thanks! Hazed golden yellow with a thin white topper. Bland aroma is grassy and noble with some sweetness underneath. Taste is bland and noble as well with sweet malt and mild peppery notes.
