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.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.

On tap at Tobacco Road. Go hoos! Crisp clean dry. More presence and flavor than the full steam IPA I just had if that’s telling you anything.

Alright...eh...won't buy again. Bitter on the back of the tongue. Doesn't taste like a cream ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (3716) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2015
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.

BierMeHoos (525) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2015
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.

snoworsummer (4260) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2015
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.

chinchill (3779) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2015
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?
