New Cream Ale Formula: Bright and crisp, this American Cream Ale stands out with just enough real strawberry aroma and flavor to keep your attention while remaining smooth and balanced from top to bottom. All carefully crafted here in North Carolina.

Gatlinburg Walgreen’s find. Straight from the bottle after a long day of moving prep. Faint, slightly sweet and tart strawberry notes. Not bad at all.

Cardboard, stale malt, maybe a little strawberry. Clear golden, medium fizzy head. Strawberry and stale malt. Fizzy and kind of harsh. Now brewed at Foothills, but still tastes like the old Carolina Beer Co. Meh, fruit beer.

12oz bottle - not a bad cream ale, and you actually do get hints of some strawberry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewpub. Clear gold pour with standard white head. Mild strawberry notes to otherwise standard light ale. Minimal flavor, thin and crisp body.

jcnielsen (1711) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a blonde color with white head. Refreshing, crisp, strawberry, malty, soda pop flavors. Not bad if you are looking for a fruity, lighter beer.

tmongoose (1085) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 28, 2013
draft pour and this is their base cream ale with strawberries added to it..poured a pale orange color with white head. nice aroma of strawberry some may not like but I thought it was decent enough and you can definitely pick it up in the flavor.

Pours a pale yellow with hints of red, with a medium head, lots of lacing. The aromas are typical of cream ales - while the strawberry aromas are present, they are a bit subdued compared to many fruit beers. Effervescent, light on the palate, creamy and a bit sweet like a cream ale should be. Again, the strawberry is subdued. If you’re looking for a lot of strawberry flavor, then this isn’t your beer. Agree with other raters that this seems like artificial flavoring. While drinking, it begins to taste stranger and a lit funky, almost like a diet soda or gum that’s been chewed for far too long.

Bottle. Pours light orange with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is artificial strawberry, like strawberry Kool-Aid. Taste is grainy with the artificial strawberry flavoring. Light sweetness. Tart, dry finish. Not my kinda beer.
