3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Bottle. A decent pilsener-like ale. Grainy scent, faint hop, with a hint of sweet sugar. Cloudy gold pour, pale yellowish, with a small head fading quickly to a white ring. Grain dominated taste with a bitter finish, crisp and clean mouthfeel, light bodied, and very smooth.

Bottle. Multiple bottles. Bought alot of this over the past while; strangely enough I never did when it was brewed by Carolina. This one seems to be much better; lively, easy drinking, great summer beer. Very crisp and clean. I like it.

This stuff is pretty righteous. Nice tart dry finish, kind of astringent i think. Who gives a crap its pretty good and has definitely been improved since its carolina brewing days. i like it.

Bottle pours light yellow with a thin white head. Aromas are grassy and taste like a pils with notable hops in the finish. Very light and good for summer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a crystal clear light gold with a tiny head that quickly faded away.
Aroma of hay, grass, and some bready malt. A touch of corn thrown in there too.
The flavor has some corn and cereal grain up front with a bed of breadyness underneath. Grass and hay hops are in there along with a light bitterness and a dry finish.
Overall, a tasty if not slightly boring blonde ale. Although not a lot is going on I couldnít really detect any off flavors and it is quite refreshing. Worth a try.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grabbed a 4 oz sample of this in the Charlotte airport. The color was nice for a blonde, there wasnít much of an aroma to speak of and the taste was flat and bland. I know blondes are suppose to be mild, but this didnít really taste like anything. I was glad I only had the 4 oz sample. There was moderate head retention and some lacing on the glass (although I donít care about that much, some people do). An all around average, middle of the road beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale yellow into a pilsner. Bright white head with little retention recedes to nothing. Soft with sour corn and sweet wheat.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
New Foothills bottle, and apparently a new beer. Or maybe they just changed their minds or got confused, who knows. This rating may be gone soon too. So Iím not gonna rant too much just for sake of typing. Straw golden, no head. It is what it says it is. Very clean smelling, very light dextrinous malts. Lightly malty, light grass, light plastic, but pretty okay and unoffensive despite tasting like pretty much nothing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Well...sometimes you have to disagree with everyone. I really like this beer. Had at the airport in Charlotte. Had a nice light crisp aroma. Looks okay. A Kolsch-like beer, but with a nice crisp dry finish. A could drink a lot of these: a great finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that diminished down to a very thin film and tiny collar creating some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, a grassy hop and a musty cobweb yeast with a hint of corn and not much else.
The taste was a bitter acidic with a pronounced grainy feel from the beginning and finished mildly hoppy with a slight metallic presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slight bitterness and a mild metallic taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was very light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic brew that was more like a light beer than a Cream Ale, although it did have a decent bitter undertone to it...
