Carolina "Blonde"
Foothills Brewing Company - Winston Salem, North Carolina USA
Cream Ale (ABV 5%) (IBU 15)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that diminished down to a very thin film and tiny collar creating some fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, a grassy hop and a musty cobweb yeast with a hint of corn and not much else.

The taste was a bitter acidic with a pronounced grainy feel from the beginning and finished mildly hoppy with a slight metallic presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slight bitterness and a mild metallic taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was very light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic brew that was more like a light beer than a Cream Ale, although it did have a decent bitter undertone to it...
