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. jkwood04 (5463) - 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 (5226) - 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.

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. nick76 (4402) - 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. unclemattie (4357) - 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. 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. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Had a weak aroma - limited malt and hops smells - slightly stale. Maybe cause I had to wait for it to warm up in a frosted mug. Deep amber clear with small foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body and medium carb. Mellow malt flavor, not too sweet up front. Big hops gives nice bittering finish with a nice nutty bitter after. An OK APA.
