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.

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.

Mild some sweet aroma. Good not fully diminishing head. Mild iinital toast bitterness and ends with a slight earthy citrus. Body is light and creamy and has good lacing throughout and also fizzy carbonation throughout.

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.

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

crazyvin (1967) - 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.

Drake (8617) - 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.
