nearbeer (5709) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 Bottle. Copper with a small head that doesn’t hang around much. Aroma is mostly nutty roasted malt with some undistinguished hops. Flavor is same. Palate is light-medium, with a slight hop tingle. Tasty, but not exciting. Still, it’s one of the better brews of SC. burg326 (5659) - 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. jkwood04 (5472) - 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. chinchill (5449) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Palmetto PA on tap at the Cork & Tap (SC).
slightly hazy light amber with a very good hea that leaves plenty of sticky lacing.
Crisp, lively carbonation with a near medium body.
Aroma: near balanced mix of hops and malts.
Flavor: lightly sweet up front; mildly bitter by the finish. Some grapefruit peel in the lingering aftertaste.
O: this APA is slightly aggressive but otherwise undistinguished.

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. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12 oz bottle at Jim & Nick’s 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.

Bottle - 12oz. Cloudy amber body with yeasty chunks and a thin white foamy head. good malty/hoppy aroma with caramel hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy and woody notes. Ends with a good bitter/woody finish. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2007
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. nick76 (4404) - 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 it’s not great. The palate is smooth. Overall I think it’s drinkable but thats all.
