From bottle. Poured golden in color with big white head. Aroma is malt with a touch of citrus hops and wheat. Taste follows with a clean cream ale taste and clean finish.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Rob! Lightly skunked nose backed with a hint of creamed corn. Flavors are rough. Oxidized and skunked. Very light. Not good, even for 3.8%. This kind of beer shouldn’t end up in bottles.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s, Chapel Hill
Pours a completely clear gold with a minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mild grass, hay, and a corn sweetness. Flavor is light sweet corn with just a touch of grassy hops on the finish. Very simple session beer, perhaps a bit insipid, but the flavors are clean and it’s pretty refreshing on a hot day. Not totally my cup of tea, but this is pretty good for what it is meant to be.
