1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from store. Aroma is skunky. Transparent yellow with plenty of carbonation. Salty initial taste transitions to unpleasant bitter aftertaste that won’t go away. Medium bodied, carbonated with foamy finish. This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear amber pour. Stale smell and taste. If this is what an "American Cream Ale" should be, I’m moving to a different class!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Blonde body with a light head. Light, grainy nose with corn character and crisp hops. The body is rather dank, twangy grains and corn, and with a mild, tannic and soapy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sharp noble hoops in the nose and taste. Appearance is typical of a blonde ale. Far from my favorite style, but this one is nice!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce single bottle from a local restaurant here on Lake Norman. Clear blonde color, its aroma is lightly malty. Flavor is a match, with a neat bitterness on the finish. Not a bad beer, just kind of boring. More of a blonde ale - not really a cream ale at all - not sure why they put cream ale on the label when it isn’t even remotely close.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Weird to see Foothills seeming to take over the Carolina Blonde; I guess they thought it was sort of iconic as one of the first popular (in-state) "Carolina" beers? Pours clear light gold, nose of sweet honey and corn. Slightly metallic. Refreshing and light, but not all that good.
