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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
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...

hman43 (1156) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Pours a light golden color. It has the taste of grass, with corn, and faint floral elements. It has a clean finish with a bit of an astringent bite.

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 (3996) - Marietta, 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 (576) - 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.

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.
