Draught at CAH under the name "Ale House Pilsner." Pours a clear light golden color with a thin head. Nose is a tad sweet in a weird way, and taste crappy lager sweet. Not a fan.

basspro76 (423) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Drank from the tap at the brewery. Faint aroma of light malt. Taste is very clean, slightly watery with an almost graham cracker like aftertaste. Not bad for a light beer.

You have to rate it based on style and this is a pretty decent light beer. Not as bad as some of those macros out there, but you must remember, it is still a light beer.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Tasted on a recent visit to Woods on South in Charlotte, NC. Generally light in color with a very thin white head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is very faint, some wheat present. Very little flavor to this beer with a slightly bitter finish. Reasonable for a light beer.

Draught. Think Sam Adams light with a bit less flavor. This is a decent take on the "light beer" idea. No off flavors or anything else gross on this one, but no pleasing flavors or body. This is really watery, but does manage to produce a nod at European hop flavor and maybe a drop of malt sweetness. Yeah, in summary this has no real bad taste and it kind of tastes like beer.

Pretty decent light beer. The only Carolina Blonde for me is NEEZY (with her hair died blonde). She is my Carolina Brunette. But this is a pretty tasty light beer, IMO.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Draught.Clear golden color. The head was gone by the time it came to the table. Subtle citrus hop flavor and taste. Crisp finish with honey/buttery aftertaste. Not bad.

Another house beer from Carolina Ale House in Cary. Gold pour with aroma and taste of malt, some hopcit, and finishing honey crispness.
Earlier Rating: 4/25/2005 Total Score: 1.7

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Bottle. Very weak beer. Small fizzy head (more than a bud) and pale body. Weak malt flavor and watery finish. Just weak all around.
