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.

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.

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).

Overall, I found this to be a pleasant enough drink, and I'm more than glad to finish the 6 pack. But, if you hadn't told me it was a strawberry beer, I'm not sure I'd have realised it was- it's very subtle. I'm not saying that I'd like it to taste like strawberry syrup, but if something's gonna call itself "Carolina Strawberry," I'd expect the berry taste to be somewhat more prominent than it is in this beer.
