The hearth of the community
Fermented as “beer” from wort extracted from fully modified two-row pale malt which provides a beautiful straw color. This beer is aggressively hopped with Perle and Centennial hops. Its light body and low alcohol allow the hops to become more prominent throughout the beer. The floral aroma is attributed to heavy handfuls of centennial hops at the finish of the boil. Hearty handfuls of hops lend a grape fruity tone in the flavor and finish of the beer.

Draft to taster at Shorts from notes. Pours a yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, citrus and light grape fruity character, floral notes, mild overall, one and done for me.

Pours thick orange amber with a big creamy light sandy white head. Aroma brings grapey straw malts and hops smooth in the nose. Couldn’t describe the flavor better than they did above, but the hops have maintained a delicious presence even with time on it! Also the grape fruity tone in the finish is described to a tee, so pleasant on the palate. The hops are definitely in the forefront with the low ABV.

Malty aroma. Medium to light with some bitter finish. Malty, drying some toast and a touch yeasty. Decent.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white foam head. Aroma is very light grassy hops. Flavor is similar, though I’m having a hard time getting anything out of this. There’s a light bitterness that lends some body, but is also slightly off-putting. I had a difficult time enjoying this one.

Wonderful hop and malt blend for a slightly sweet but hoppy brew. Solid body for only 4.5% ABV!

Smells of light hop maybe citrus, starts as hop flavor very easy goin tho nothing shouts til the finish, this is when the bitter hop bite kicks in, nothing to rave about but drinkable

The Village Reserve pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow with an eggshell white head that lasts a good while. The aroma is citrus and grape. The flavor is citrus initially with a bit of grape and then an earthy citrus bitter finish. Overall this is a pretty nice beer.
