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.

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.

Blondes are hit or miss for me. This one was ok....somewhere around borderline. Sampled in a build your own 6-pack from a getaway to Myrtle Beach. Decent refreshing feel from a clearish pale yellow appearance. Flavors of super light caramel malt, grain, and water. Pretty much summer or lawnmower beer here.

High hopes for this low abv cream ale. After all, I like Genny cream! Hey, you know, I liked Carolina Beer Co. Blonde (retired), and it wasn’t bad and I heard a rumor this is the new carolina blonde, almost same recipe! From a bottle I assume its clear pale yellow. Smell is a little sour. Taste is initially a little tart, I think. Good bubbly sensations. Enjoyable, un-offensive with just a tail of that ale attitude. Yes, could drink a couple of these mild ales, not bad.

Not a terrible blonde cream ale but nothing to write home about. A decent beer for a hot summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fruity and clean and I really enjoyed this - surprised to see it here as cream ale but I don’t really understand that style anyways.

On tap at the Charlotte, NC airport. Yellow, heady pour. Slight haze. Big citrus hop aroma, which is unusual for a Blonde...Unless I was misinformed of what I was drinking. Toasted bread. Light to medium body. Same big citrus hop finish with roasted sweet malts below. It is more like an IPA.

Pours clear golden with white head. Light malt aroma with slight hops and some yeast. Flavor is light malt with some citrus and biscuit malt.

Bottle into glass at the beach in Nc. Very pale straw color w white head. Corn aroma. Bitter indistinguishable hop taste. No real creaminess. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Capitol On Tap. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is light grain, light body, lower carbonation, and pretty good lacing. Taste is light malt.

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.
