Clear amber pour. Stale smell and taste. If this is what an "American Cream Ale" should be, I’m moving to a different class! tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 28, 2013
draft pured light yellow color with white head. light bodied medium flavor of malt and some hops and I could easily pick up the wheat. mild bitterness and flavor not a bad cream ale but not an expert on this style. BillKismet (4072) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Blonde body with a light head. Light, grainy nose with corn character and crisp hops. The body is rather dank, twangy grains and corn, and with a mild, tannic and soapy finish. smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Sharp noble hoops in the nose and taste. Appearance is typical of a blonde ale. Far from my favorite style, but this one is nice! morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2013
12 ounce single bottle from a local restaurant here on Lake Norman. Clear blonde color, its aroma is lightly malty. Flavor is a match, with a neat bitterness on the finish. Not a bad beer, just kind of boring. More of a blonde ale - not really a cream ale at all - not sure why they put cream ale on the label when it isn’t even remotely close.

Aromas of flora, honey, and bread crust. Clear yellow-gold with a mostly fading, white head. Dry and corny. Light and clean. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Weird to see Foothills seeming to take over the Carolina Blonde; I guess they thought it was sort of iconic as one of the first popular (in-state) "Carolina" beers? Pours clear light gold, nose of sweet honey and corn. Slightly metallic. Refreshing and light, but not all that good. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Rob! Lightly skunked nose backed with a hint of creamed corn. Flavors are rough. Oxidized and skunked. Very light. Not good, even for 3.8%. This kind of beer shouldn’t end up in bottles. 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.

Pours a macro (with a sudsy head) appearing. Aroma is a little wheaty and not much else. Flavor is a little sweet, wheat, slightly light and crazy mouthfeel for a golden beer.
