Foothills Brewing Carolina Strawberry.
Picked up on my way from Amherst to Jacksonville from Bottle Revolution in NC (Great Place).
A: Poured an orange yellow like ginger ale, not much head and what little there was disappeared instantly.
S: Musk, Strawberries, not a hell of a lot going on here.
T: Strawberry’s and some cream. Sweet and a lot of sugary notes. Some ale notes on the end.
M: Fizzy, some ale and some passing strawberry. Seems like a lot of carbonation.
O: Meh, forgettable. It’s a decent beer for a cream ale just not amazing and overall the style is somewhat unimpressive anyway. (608 characters)

I haven't had this in a few years. I was interested to see if change of ownership to Foothills made any difference.

A - Pale copper gold; huge white head that's thick and dense with great retention, there was a great deal of head that tried to escape the bottle the second the cap was lifted

S - faintly grainy, syrup-like strawberry aroma

T - cereal grains, strawbeery syrup, very sweet

M - crisp, highly carbonated, light to medium bodied

This has, in my opinion, never been a great beer. The change of ownership seems to have not made a difference. It seems it's quite the same recipe with the same artificial fruit aroma and flavor. I'll avoid in the future. (667 characters)

A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of natural strawberry, slightly sweet over the top of some grainy malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of grainy, cereal malts underneath some light natural strawberry flavors with just a hint of both sweetness and tartness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly prickly.

O: Pretty decent offering that combines nice natural fruit with a cream ale - I enjoyed it and think it would be a nice easy drinking summer beer (good for cooking out, maybe after the meal is served like a dessert). (842 characters)
