COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Cream Ale Formula: Two row barley, a hint of wheat and noble hops make Carolina Blonde exactly what a craft brew American Cream Ale should be. Clean, refreshing flavor. Rich, golden color. Unmistakable smoothness. Brewed right here in North Carolina.

Bottle. Pours a very light golden ale with a moderate head. Not a lot of smell to it. Almost has a hint of lagerness to it, but it’s a very smooth ale. Really interesting...

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2012
From the 8/2012 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry and tart with notes of citrus and perfume. The flavor was dry and tart with vague citrus, band aid and a touch of bread. Medium length dry, tart and citric finish. Light body. Not good.

Atom (1549) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12oz bottle pours a clear golden/straw with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, grain, and fruit. Taste overall bland, grain, slight hop bitterness. Drinkable but nothing special.

Drake (9433) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Crozet. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, grassy hops, corn and apples. Almost skunky, oddly. The taste is tart malts, corn, grain grassy hops. Medium bodied and refreshing.

A nice crisp, clean beer perfect for sipping on a hot summer day. Light, yet flavourful

crazyvin (2017) - New York, USA - JUL 20, 2012
A nice slightly cloudy yellow hue. A nice white head that had some retention and decent lace. Aroma seemed mild, some nice grass hops, some nice crisp malt notes. A good balance in flavor, although light, had a nice malt base. Good hay and bread notes. A slight bite from the hops, but overall very mild. Very clean and smooth. Slightly crisp in the finish.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2012
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.

ross (2104) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2012
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.
