Bottle. Multiple bottles. Bought alot of this over the past while; strangely enough I never did when it was brewed by Carolina. This one seems to be much better; lively, easy drinking, great summer beer. Very crisp and clean. I like it.

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.

hman43 (1429) - 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.

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 (4567) - 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 (587) - 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.
