UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007) bigred024 (26) - South Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2007
A decent deep and bright orange color. Has brilliant hops to add a bitter flavor. Very decent pale ale. Foxbush (2044) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 Purchased six pack while visiting USC with my daughter. Geens is a major liquor and beer supplier near USC. This Pale Ale has an inviting golden color with a smallish head and lacing down the glass. The hop flavors of mild grapefruit were evident. The finish was smooth with some bitterness. My son and I enjoyed this ale after the spring gamecocks game. This is my first Palmetto beer. I am looking forward to trying their other products. At the AOPD meeting in Charleston I was able to enjoy more. I upgraded my scores slightl;y. Very smooth finish with some bitterness. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Pours golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of mild grapefruit, lightly acidic, green hop leaf. Taste is grainy (in a good way), lightly acidic, and lightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with full carbonation. Good beer from a pitiful beer state. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 21, 2007
Neon orange, creamy head.smells tastes of pine, peach and apricots. After is tad watery. Decent beer.

This was my favorite out of the 4 Palmetto Beers that I’ve 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. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours orange gold with rocky white head. The aroma is subtle and clean fruity hops. The flavor is mellow fruity hops, honeydew, and some candy sweetness. It gets only a little bit dry in the finish. Very refreshing. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 17, 2006
I think perhaps each beer I have from Palmetto gets a little better. The pale ale is very nicely bittered with a grapefruit profile that is very satisfying. The taste is fairly well balanced with hops and malts and it finishes very clean. This is a decent beer that I will have to seek out if I ever find myself lost in South Carolina.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/copper with a nice, lasting white head. The aroma is crisp and herbal with strong notes of marijuana and pine with a bit of caramel. The hops certainly are in the foreground of the flavor providing a sturdy grapefruit, pine bitterness which is rather drying. The malts are thin, but do balance things out a bit with some caramel sweetness. The finish is quite acidic, almost lemony, and really leaves a lingering burn. Considering APA to be such an unpredictable style, this one really establishes itself as a worthy brew. I now consider Palmetto to be one of the more reliable breweries in South Carolina. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2006
12 oz bottle via DecaturoStevo(thanks!). Pours a hazy amber orange with a VERY SMALL white head. Nose is floral and has notes of grapefruit, grass, pine. Tastes like it smells and is quite hoppy gor a Pale Ale. Malts are there for a second but are pretty subdued. Crisp clean grapefruit finish with a touch of lemon in the aftertaste. Very nice hoppy refreshing beer.
