Palmetto is one of those small local breweries whose beers I tend to enjoy. Had this at one of the many seafood restaurants that dot Charleston and thoroughly enjoyed it. It went very well with my dish although the waitress had recommended Palmetto Pale Ale. A good full-bodied brew with a nice sense of hops in both the smell and taste to balance the malts. Crisp. clean taste with a nearly dry finish.

Pours a pale golden color with a thin white head that is gone faster than a week-end.
Smell is of fresh-cut grass and I like the smell of fresh-cut grass.
Taste is heavy on the malt as expected. Also some straw flavor in there. Taste is actually really good and is very flavorful considering the style. It's missing the corn taste that a lot of similar beers have, which is a good thing.
Mouthfeel is simple and boring.
A very drinkable BBQ beer.

A - pours a hazy yellow color, white head that quickly dissipates
S - lightly malty, strong lager yeast and a touch of hops
T - similar to the smell. Dominated by the lager yeast.
M - light bodied, nicely carbonated and crisp
D - I could see this being a tangy summer party lager as a nice choice in a cooler with a few other ales. The drinkability for this to me goes up with the heat index and BBQ factor.

Nothing impressive here but drinkable....however I would not recomend the purchase of more than a sixer. Medium light in colour and murky. Carbonation is active but not expressive.
Very thick island lace lends to the only other active colour.
Taste has a floral quality to it but minor.
Fairly well balanced with a light bitter finish.
Dinning...yeah, ok...with fish. I hate fish.

Poured a limp-looking cloudy golden color. No head to speak of. Aromas are surprisingly hoppy and earthy. A bit of grainy malt and honey? emerge as well. Flavor was better than expected for a lager. Well-balanced between the hops and malt. Finishes with a grainy bitterness. Mouthfeel is above average. Very drinkable. Good summer beer.
Thanks to AKSmokedPorter for this one.

Slightly hazy straw color with a nice white head. Lacing was non-evident as the head faded to a thin layer.
Aroma of lightly kilned malts and noble hops.
Taste is similar. Bready malt flavor with a bitter hop finish. Does not finish very clean.
Light bodied, nicely carbonated, and highly drinkable.

This would be a good camping beer. The beer is light with a thin head. The smell is like a mass produced beer with a sweeter ending. The taste is also like mass produced beer but without the harsh corn bite. The mouthfeel is smooth. I could drink this beer again. A sessionable beer.

Picked up a sixer out of curiosity while on vacation.
Drank on the beach at hilton head.
Beer pours a very light, golden color. Very clear and clean looking.
Not much head or lacing but well carbonated for sure.
In my opinion, for the style, this one stood out.
decent nose, with a slight malty biscuit aroma pushing through the sweet hoppiness.
Mouthfeel and flavor were very strong in my opinion for a lager of this type.
Good beer for sure.

My girlfriend got this for me and I poured it into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body is a clear golden color. The head is one finger tall, white in color, small sized bubbles, poor retention and thin lacing.
Smell: The aromas are sweet, grapes and wheat.
Taste: The flavors are a bit tart, bread and earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very crisp.
Drinkability: This is a very drinkable beer.
Don't drink and review.

Poured this Czech Pilsener from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden color, produced an average head, nice retention, and it left a nice amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma consisted of fresh baked bread, and some slight notes of lemon citrus. Light in body, this Pilsener is quite refreshing and crisp. Very nice mouthfeel, plenty of malted grain some earthy hop qualities. Very nice session beer, would make for a great summer beer- a lot more flavor then a macro brewed lager.

12 oz bottle at 42 degrees into a pint glass.
A: It pours a clear copper color with a finger and a half of quickly dying white head.
S: Caramel and bread malts, graininess, and metallic notes.
T: Light fruitiness, some wet grains, and some sour metallic notes.
M: It has a medium-light body with average carbonation.
O: This is better than a typical macro lager but nothing to write home about.

Some dear friends brought me a sixer of this back from the Holy City of Charleston where the Ashley and Cooper rivers meet to form the Atlantic Ocean. Charleston is a picturesque city. This is a fine local beer.
Pours a nice pale yellow that is sharp and clear with fine persistent carbonation that feeds a pure white head that is rather short-lived.
Smell is rather minimal. Slightly fruity, slightly flowery hops with hits of soft hints of malt.
Taste is mild. There is a soft malt character, almost wheat like with a short bitter hop finish. The hops are very citrusy so I am thinking Oregon/California hops.
Mouth feel is crisp and light, very refreshing.
This is a drinkable brew. Wish it was available when I was at school in Charleston.

Served chilled from a 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Light orange with a short lived white head. No retention or lacing.
Smell: Light pale malt aromas with light herby hop notes. Not anything overly strong.
Taste: Light pale malt flavor with a snappy, grassy hop aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel, aftertaste lingers for a bit, but doesn't overstay its welcome.
Drinkability: For a lager, not bad. I wasn't overly impressed, though. I should say I'm not much of a fan of this style of lager.

This beer was tasted in a Pilsner glass from the bottle.
It pours a golden color with a frothy head that laces at first but then dissipates. It smells strongly of barley and tastes pretty much the same. The malts are balanced nicely with hops. It has a good body to it with even carbonation. It is a good beer for easy drinking without dipping into bud-miller-coors.
