Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a pale golden color with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma was very subtle, not much there at all, smell was mostly malty sweetness. Taste was balanced, nice hop flavor with a little malt flavor. highly carbonated, but pretty smooth, very light body. It could make a good thirst quenching session beer, but it's still just average.

From notes 8/27/11
Pours a golden copper with ¼” of head that fades quickly to a thin lacing. Smells a bit musty with faint wheat notes and a little faint yeasty spice coming through. Taste is faint wheat, slightly yeasty, and just a hint of metal. Mouthfeel is crisp, smooth, and light.
A very sessionable beer, but a forgettable beer overall.

Trying the Foothills Brewing Carolina Blonde at the Taste of Carolina at the B concourse in Charlotte, NC airport. The beer poured a clear golden color with thin white head that dissapates quickly....not much lacing. The smell includes hints of lemon and barley. The taste bursts with a tart lemon zing....the malt never realy kicks in to balance the beer. Teh mouthfeel is light to medium with big carbonation. Overall it is ok...would be great for the summer time.

S: Clean, malty, grainy character, earthy. Slight plastic taste
L: Hazy, straw yellow, big creamy white head with good retention and lacing.
T: Very clean, light malt with a touch of spiciness. Low bitterness, slightly earthy. Malt character is extremely low.
M: Medium high carbonation, light bodied, effervescent.
Not good, almost an off flavor in the aroma. I expected a little more malt character for a cream ale. Could easily pass off as a light beer.

Served on tap in a pint
Appearance is clear and light yellow-straw color with a small creamy white head that retains decently, leaving behind some lace. Smells of grains, grass and a hint of cream. Taste like an adjunct light lager with just a hint of sweetness, hops are barely traceable but slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is light with biting carbonation leading to a foamy mouthfeel. This would appeal to a BMC drinker, but there are better cream ales out there.
