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.

Hazy gold with a large white head. Very hoppy aroma, w/ a little citrus. Grass, a touch of vanilla, some citrus. Starts sweet, finishes bitter.

Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head. Aroma is clean malt and earthy hops. Taste has a weird iron metallic note that just grows the more you drink it. No bueno.

Got a six pack while on vacation. Pours a pale golden yellow color, with an inch of white foam. Aroma of some malt sweetness, and a bit lemony, minimal hops. Taste is grainy malt taste, with some mild lemon at the end. Palate on the lighter side, medium body, crisp and clean aftertaste. Overall, not great but ok.

Draft in Waynesville. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet corn, grassy, musky pale malts, straw, and faint citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, citrus, musky pale malts, and straw.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours golden-straw colored with a semi-durable white head. Light malty and yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus. Flavor follows. Clean and refreshing. Feel: light but not watery body; crisp, medium carbonation; semi-dry finish.

2015.07.09-Foothills Carolina Blonde-Sampler flight at Charlotte Airport. Not sure I am versed in the style but it's pretty OK. Very smooth, just enough hops to tell they are there, a hint of wheat graininess. Interesting but not super remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is indeed a disturbing universe. .. pours gold .. fine lacing .. hay and light straw .. almost no crispness .. nothing offensive, just boring and without flaws .. . . i wonder how long it took the joker to apply his makeup in the morning? or do you think he did it in the car on the way to the office?

Bottle from Food Lion. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma is a bit grainy, not much there. The taste is like wet cereal. Meh.

Good example of a cream ale. Not complicated, but good mouth feel and light flavor.
