probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, - MAR 4, 2013
8 oz glass at Beer Revolution (Calgary). Clear golden with a small white head. Light cereal and biscuit, a touch of noble hops. Medium body and carbonation. Quite light, faint cereals, a touch biscuit and grassy hops. Meh.

Butterbomb drain pour. Looked really nice, but that’s it. Who on earth wants to drink a pint of diacetyl?

Village Blonde goes down easy. Hmm, is there a joke in there somewhere? Faint grass and grain aroma and taste.

DuffMan (6646) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Draft sample during Calgary International Beerfest 2014. Medium blonde with a mild haze. Sweet grainy profile, simple. No real hop character. A bit thin.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Very pale yellow. Soapy aroma. Yeasty. Not great. Aftertaste a bit dull.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
8oz draught at Beer Revolution. Heard good things out of Calgary about Village. Not sure if this beer is included in the hype. 4.5%. This is a crisp, clear, grainy blonde beer with a dry, bland, macroey type feel. Woopdeefuckindoo.

reebtogi (4146) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
330ml bottle pours a clear bright golden color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy with some pepper. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a grassy and spicy bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A quality blonde ale that is worthy of sampling.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Tap at Beer Revolution. Pale yellow with a light whitish cap. Nose has light grains and weak fruity note. Taste is rather light with a grainy base. Some grainy aftertaste. Light brew overall.

RyanE (143) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
Looks lively. Pale yellow with thin white head. Malt and fresh bread aroma. Was refreshing with clean finish but not robust or complex enough to be called a blonde ale.

northropfrye (2196) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2012 This is a brand new batch, consumed just a day after bottling. Yellow in colour. A malty, kind of sweet aroma and flavour, with a very slight hoppy bitter finish. Nothing special, but an okay beer, and it seems they improved their product from the earlier batch.
