Pours a very pale yellow with a moderate amount of white head. Aroma non-descript, maybe a little fresh cut grass or hay, sweetish. Taste was pleasantly surprising after the mellow aroma, a sweet buttery underlay with mild spice, grass, cereal, cashew and custard notes. Finish sweetish but balanced by a crisp dryness. Rather decent session option and well-executed example of the style. Less hoppy than some American craft blondes. A touch of metallic copper in the finish but not enough to ruin the overall effect.

This one pours like a fizzy, yellow and overcarbonated homebrew. It smells of fresh cut grass with a touch of honey. Mouthfeel is light and head doesn't really stick around all that long. It tastes pretty decent and it's an approchable beer that is going to appeal to a large audience of macro drinkers. The fact that The Village is treading lightly is easily understood as a handful of Alberta start-ups have come and gone over the year. Hope to see some bolder flavours in the future from these guys!

Draft pint at Craft Beer Market, Calgary. I'm happy to support another local brewery.
This beer is clear, golden yellow color. Short but tight off-white head, creamy foam leaves a sheet of lace, while taking its time fading away.
It smells of light grain malt, and a thin aroma of grassy hops.
The taste is a nice blend of bready malt, the same grassy hops as in the smell, a bit of lemony finish.
The carbonation gives a nice mouth feel, the body is light to medium, smooth and easy to drink.
Most blonde ales are pretty plain, and dare I say boring, but this one defies the stereotype. Big thumbs up!
